ISSUE/POLICY BRIEFS & REPORTS

THE CHINA DREAM
An idea never dies and the Chinese elite understood that centuries ago! 2. The ‘China Dream’, or idea of making China great again, has been espoused by Chinese leaders for more than a couple of centuries and the idea continues to resonate with the Chinese people. The first popular expression of this sentiment was the Boxer Rebellion (1889-1901), which was anti-imperialist, anti-foreign and anti-Christian – together crystalising into resentment against the colonial powers who had divided China, as the Chinese say, ‘like an over-ripe pomegranate’! The narrative being propagated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership of “a hundred years of humiliation” is part of this. Chinese leaders, including Mao Zedong and the founders of the CCP in 1921, have articulated this with varying intensity. One reason why it is called the ‘China Dream’ and not the Chinese Dream is that this is an idea that has inspired Chinese leaders and the leadership elite, and not the Chinese masses.

CCP CC’S 4TH PLENUM COULD SUGGEST A DILUTION IN XI JINPING’S AUTHORITY
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) held the long overdue 4th plenary session of its 19th Central Committee (CC) from October 28 – 31, 2019. Held after a delay of nearly 20 months, the 4th Plenum took place at a time of some uncertainty in China, indicated also by speculative reports suggesting that the Politburo Standing Committee (PBSC) could be expanded with the addition of a couple of new members. This speculation, which claimed that the induction of new members would signal a political setback for Xi Jinping, proved erroneous. However, while the Plenum communique unequivocally emphasised the Party’s importance in all spheres it, along with the Plenum Resolution issued on November 5 evening, did contain a hint that possibly Xi Jinping’s power has been slightly diluted.

CHINA: PATH TO HI-TECHNOLOGY
The world is on the threshold of major technology advances that will translate what has so far been in the realm of science fiction to everyday reality. There is clear promise of transformational changes, with the next couple of decades being witness to technology driving almost every aspect of life.

CAN THE SECOND XI-MODI SUMMIT TACKLE THE REALLY DIFFICULT ISSUES
In just around a fortnight in mid-October, Chinese President Xi Jinping is scheduled to arrive in India for his second ‘informal’ meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the ancient coastal town of Mamallapuram near Chennai. Xi Jinping is likely to combine it with a visit to neighbouring Nepal where China has in recent years acquired considerable influence, the pace of which has accelerated since installation of the communist government initially under Prachanda. Developments over the past months, however, make any meaningful progress at the Summit unlikely.

CHINA’S XIAOKANG (WELL-OFF) BORDER DEFENCE VILLAGES IN TIBET AUTONOMOUS REGION
Since the 19th Party Congress in October 2017, Chinese President Xi Jinping has signalled that extra attention would be paid by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership to building a more comprehensive security structure in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). The new architecture strengthens the present security apparatus already in place and combines it with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s new initiative of ‘model ‘xiaokang’ (well-off) border defence villages’. It is part of his nationwide push for poverty alleviation spelt out at the 19th Party Congress. The ‘xiaokang’ (well-off) border defence villages’ are also intended to create a buffer inhabited by people loyal to the CCP and the nation.
