The third plenum session of the Central Committee of the CCP, traditionally used to announce major economic reforms, is due to be held in July 2024. This talk will assess the policies announced at the plenum, and the course it sets for China's economy. Will China seek to rebalance the economy from an investment-driven economy to a consumption-driven economy? How does the Xi regime trade off the objectives of economic growth and self-reliance? What are the objectives of China's industry policy? And what do developments in the domestic economy mean for imports, exports and Australia?
