The annual sessions of the National People’s Congress (NPC) and Chinese People’s Political Consultative Congress (CPPCC), also known as the two sessions or Lianghui, ended on March 15th, 2015 in Beijing. Lianghui is an important feature of the Chinese political season, and one of the few opportunities to get an update on internal party priorities for the year ahead. In 2015 the Lianghui received extra scrutiny because this year China will complete projects from the 12th Five-Year Plan and unveil the new 13th Five-Year Plan. The release of the 13th Five-Year Plan will be in some ways the culmination of a political and economic agenda-setting process that began with the Third Plenum of the 18th Party Congress in 2013.
In the report ‘New Normal & Securing Growth,’ Weber Shandwick provides a review of major themes from Lianghui which can assist organisations to align their business and communication strategies with some of the new big-idea plans announced this year. Themes include the Belt and Road initiatives; Made in China 2025; the Internet Plus action plan; and promoting environmental sustainability.
