Third Plenary Session of the 18th Chinese Communist Party, Beijing, 9-12 November 2013

China’s ruling Communist Party held the Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee from 9 to 12 November 2013 in Beijing. "Third Plenums have been the launch-pad for many of China's major reforms. Now, with the leadership suggesting that a 'master plan' will be unveiled in November, expectations are understandably high,” wrote Capital Economics' Mark Williams and Julian Evans-Pritchard in a note to clients.

Thirty-five years ago, China launched its reform after the Third Plenary Session of the 11th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was held. Examining the seven communiques published since 1978, villages and agriculture, market economy, reform and development were the most frequently used words, which present the development footprint since China carried out the reform and opening-up policy in 1978.
