China's president, Xi Jinping, has positioned himself strongly at home and abroad. Domestically, Mr Xi has focused on solidifying his power, ahead of an important reshuffle in the second half of 2017 of the seven-member politburo standing committee (PSC), the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) top decision-making body.

It is also shaped by the goal of creating a "moderately prosperous society" by 2021, a date that marks the centenary of the founding of the CCP.

The 13th FYP's main economic and social directives include:
