The Communist Party of China (CPC) kicked off a key policy meeting in Beijing on Saturday, with a discussion on deeper economic reforms at the top of the agenda, Xinhua news agency reported the same day. The four-day Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee will deliberate on a draft decision of the Central Committee on “major issues concerning comprehensively deepening reforms,” it said. The document has been widely expected to set the tone for the world’s second-largest economy to advance the reform that has lasted for more than three decades. Comprehensively deepening reform means the reform will be more systematic, integrated and coordinated. The CPC will work to speed up the development of a socialist market economy, democracy, cultural development, social harmony and ecological progress, according to a statement issued after a Political Bureau of the 18th CPC Central Committee meeting held on Oct. 29.
