    Xi Jinping is one of the world’s most powerful leaders and will remain so for many more years if, as expected, he secures a third term as Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at the forthcoming 20th National Congress of the CCP. Despite being in power for close to a decade, he is also a man that remains a mystery to much of the world. Join Dr Joseph Torigian, one of the premier scholars of the Chinese leader and elite politics, as he discusses Xi’s early years and rise to power and what that reveals about the Chinese leader’s worldview and agenda. The event will be moderated by Richard McGregor, the Lowy Institute's Senior Fellow for East Asia.
