    Xi’s name has been attached to the country’s slogans and initiatives that reflect its newfound strength and identity, from Xi Jinping’s Chinese Dream to Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road Initiative. Xi’s influence was even codified into China’s constitution in 2017, when the Chinese Communist Party amended the document to include “Xi Jinping Thought” - the leader’s vision for China’s next 30 years.

    Xi’s early presidency has been focused on using his newfound power to continue to combat corruption within the CCP. These corruption drives helped maintain the party’s popularity in China despite the country’s slowing growth rates.

    More recently, Xi’s agenda has pivoted to foreign policy. Some observers say that for Xi, China’s strength will come from recovering the country’s dominance across Asia.

    And Xi has long term plans to pursue more influence even further abroad. Projects like the “Belt and Road Initiative” are integral to Xi’s goal of turning China’s economic strength into political influence.

    But how much else do we know about the most powerful leader China has had in decades?

    We’ll take a look at Xi’s rise to power and how that shaped his ambitions for China and its place on the global stage.

    What do you think about Xi Jinping’s rise to power? Will he be able to set China up as a perennial power on the world stage? Let us know in the comments, and as always, like and subscribe.
