In Late October 2017, Xi Jinping (currently serving as General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and President of the People’s Republic of China) declared the beginning of a third “new era” in modern China, that will dominate as completely as Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping in the previous two. The Communist party subsequently enshrined into the party constitution a vague formulation “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era” to guide Chinese emergence as a first-world global power by 2050.
