Two months after the end of the 17th Congress, the Chinese leadership is projecting the image of being reform-minded yet cautious, quietly proceeding to bring about an economic transformation of China. This indeed seems to be Hu Jintao’s trademark. The 17th Congress applied the customary rules, allocating posts on the Central Committee to the various institutions, applying the age limit of 68 without fear or favour, and having the collective leadership itself select the Politburo and its Standing Committee. Ever since the 12th Congress (1982), each successive Congress has increasingly shown that it is driven by one ambition, that of compensating for the lack of any open or legal mechanism for appointments through an informal selection, one that is less arbitrary and more representative of the administrative and technological forces in play.

Mathieu Duchâtel and François Godement
