INDICATION OF DISARRAY IN PLA AND IMMINENT ‘RECTIFICATION’ CAMPAIGN
The senior echelons of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) appear to be in disarray. The unexplained long absences of Central Military Commission (CMC) Vice Chairman General Zhang Youxia and sudden removal of Defence Minister Li Shangfu, both with close family ties to Chinese President Xi Jinping, has added to the state of uncertainty. Many senior officers have also in recent months been removed on charges of corruption or violation of political discipline. In addition, a usually reliable report claims that the PLA has conveyed to Xi Jinping that it is not ready for an invasion of Taiwan. It is almost certain that the PLA will be subjected to a thorough ‘cleansing’ or rectification centering on corruption and political reliability.

TIBET: THE FULCRUM OF CHINA’S STRATEGIC POLICY IN THE HIMALAYAS
China is positioning Tibet as the fulcrum for its strategic policy in the sensitive Himalayan region thus directly and adversely impacting India. Beijing appears to have assessed that it has sufficiently calmed the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) to feel adequately secure in opening Tibet up wider for interaction with foreign countries. China’s foreign policy objectives are aimed at enveloping the Himalayan states in the region, which are on India’s northern periphery, into a China-dominated grouping. While it will be wrapped in the garb of preserving the ecology and environment, the main objective will be to advance Beijing’s strategic agenda. Two recent events in TAR and the TAR Party Secretary’s trip to Nepal, Sri Lanka and Singapore earlier this month need to be viewed in this backdrop. China appears to be preparing to enhance military, economic and diplomatic pressure on India in the Himalayan region along India’s northern frontiers.

CHINA’S CENTRAL FINANCE AND ECONOMIC AFFAIRS WORK CONFERENCE REVEALS EMPHASIS ON SECURITY AND DEVELOPMENT
China’s long awaited Central Financial Work Conference was held in Beijing on October 30-31, 2023, and was the first held since the establishment of the Central Financial Commission and the Central Financial Working Committee. With the decline in China's economic growth and little prospects for its revival, there was expectation among Chinese economists, provincial government officials and others that the important once-in-five year Central Finance and Economic Work Conference would take steps for stimulating and reviving the economy. They expected that measures to stimulate the economy would include infusing large sums into specific sectors, like real estate. While the conference did take some steps, it instead emphasised ‘security’ and ‘development’, which were the policy guidelines set for this term by the 20th Party Congress.

CHINA-US: LIMITED RAPPROCHEMENT AFOOT?
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Washington on a two-day (October 26-28, 2023) visit after a telling interval of five years. Official readouts of the visit indicate some progress during Wang Yi’s visit. Important were the disclosures that consultations on maritime affairs and arms control would resume and Chinese President Xi Jinping would visit San Francisco this November for the APEC Summit -- this will be the second meeting between the two since US President Biden assumed office.

UNUSUAL DEVELOPMENTS IN CHINA
The interest of governments and observers of China have got heightened with some unusual developments taking place in China particularly since the past few months. These have included the "removal" of high Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, purges of high officials of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and changes in Chinese President Xi Jinping’s work pattern. Countries are also concerned at the implications of China's deteriorating economic situation.
