Xi Jinping or 习近平 became President of the People's Republic of China in 2013, and therefore, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and Chairman of the Central Military Commission.[1] As Xi holds the top offices of the party and the military, in addition to being the head of state through the office of the president, he is sometimes referred to as China's "Paramount leader"[2] and recognised by the party as its leadership "core".[3]

As General Secretary, Xi holds an ex-officio seat on the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China, China's top decision-making body.[4]

Early life

Xi comes from an important family in China; Xi's father held a series of posts, including Party propaganda chief, vice-premier, and vice chairperson of the Chinese National People's Congress. In 1963 his father was purged from the CCP and sent to work in a factory in the Henan province. In 1966, the Cultural Revolution cut short Xi's high school education when all secondary classes were halted for students. Student militants ransacked the Xi family home and one of Xi's sisters "was persecuted to death". His father was later imprisoned in 1968. Xi was accepted into the Communist Youth League of China in 1971 after he "befriended" a local politician and applied to join the CCP in 1974. From 1975 to 1979, Xi studied chemical engineering at Beijing Tsinghua University.[5]

The rise of Xi Jinping, explained - VOX

Deep state connections

Xi is not listed on ISGP's superclass index. He is not part of the powerful big tech clans, like Jack Ma, Ma Huateng or corporate oligarchs like Ronnie Chan, perhaps being a figurehead or eliminating officials for the most trivial reasons, similar to Joseph Stalin. Xi is noted to have participated in Russian-led and US-led deep lobbying conferences, most notable, hosted by Michael Bloomberg, and meeting with Henry Kissinger behind Donald Trump's back to stop the US-China trade war.[6]


According to newspaper Caixing, Since Xi came to power, over 4 million people have been prosecuted for corruption in China alone.[7]

Wikileaks Cables

"Xi Jinping, a senior leader in the Communist Party and its presumed future CCP General Secretary (a presumption proved correct in 2012), is portrayed as an "extremely ambitious" person who is incorruptible and has chosen to survive by becoming "redder than reds". A source close to Xi has revealed that he is neither corrupt nor a fan of democracy. He appears uninterested in leisure pursuits preferred by many high-ranking officials. Women consider him boring, a trait he shares with his stern superior.".[8]

War on Terror

Since Xi's reign, and after the 2014 Kunming Attack, Xinjiang is the focus of the Chinese government's Strike Hard Campaign, a social control research project targeting Turkic Muslims.

It is equally prominent in a US led effort to sabotage the Chinese New Silk Roads trade project, a campaign involving support to armed groups and a massive propaganda campaign with a barrage of dubiously sourced claims of Chinese atrocities.

WEF 2022 virtual meeting

Full article: World Economic Forum

“No matter what difficulties may come our way, we must adhere to a people-centered philosophy of development, place development and livelihoods front and center in global macro-policies, realize the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and build greater synergy among existing mechanisms of development cooperation to promote balanced development worldwide. We need to uphold the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, promote international cooperation on climate change in the context of development, and implement the outcomes of COP26 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.”
Xi Jinping (17 January 2022)  [9]

“Naturally, countries have divergences and disagreements between them. Yet a zero-sum approach that enlarges one's own gain at the expense of others will not help. Acts of single-mindedly building "exclusive yards with high walls" or "parallel systems", of enthusiastically putting together exclusive small circles or blocs that polarize the world, of overstretching the concept of national security to hold back economic and technological advances of other countries, and of fanning ideological antagonism and politicizing or weaponizing economic, scientific and technological issues, will gravely undercut international efforts to tackle common challenges.”
Xi Jinping (17 January 2022)  [9]

Related Quotation

John Bolton“Trump spoke with Xi Jinping by phone on June 18, ahead of 2019's Osaka G20 summit, when they would next meet. Trump began by telling Xi he missed him and then said that the most popular thing he had ever been involved with was making a trade deal with China, which would be a big plus politically. They agreed their economic teams could continue meeting. The G20 bilateral arrived, and during the usual media mayhem at the start, Trump said, "we've become friends. My trip to Beijing with my family was one of the most incredible of my life." With the press gone, Xi said this is the most important bilateral relationship in the world. He said that some (unnamed) political figures in the United States were making erroneous judgments by calling for a new cold war, this time between China and the United States. Whether Xi meant to finger the Democrats, or some of us sitting on the US side of the table, I don't know, but Trump immediately assumed Xi meant the Democrats. Trump said approvingly that there was great hostility among the Democrats. He then, stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming US presidential election, alluding to China's economic capability to affect the ongoing campaigns, pleading with Xi to ensure he'd win. He stressed the importance of farmers, and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans and wheat in the electoral outcome. I would print Trump's exact words, but the government's prepublication review process has decided otherwise.”John BoltonJune 2020
