2019 Is a Sensitive Year for China. Xi Is Nervous.

“Beijing is confronting significant pressure from the international community over its political and business practices that only adds to its difficulties in dealing with its domestic issues."

China’s leader, Xi Jinping, abruptly summoned hundreds of officials to Beijing recently, forcing some to reschedule long-planned local assemblies. The meeting seemed orchestrated to convey anxious urgency. The Communist Party, Xi told the officials, faces major risks on all fronts and must batten down the hatches.
Whether dealing with foreign policy, trade, unemployment or property prices, he declared, officials would be held responsible if they slipped up and let dangers spiral into real threats.
“Globally, sources of turmoil and points of risk are multiplying,” he told the gathering in January at the Central Party School. At home, he added, “the party is at risk from indolence, incompetence and of becoming divorced from the public.”

China may be ditching its 2025 initiative in a possible attempt to please Washington, as part of efforts to reduce trade tensions.
The speech was one of Xi’s starkest warnings since he came to power in 2012 and has been echoed at hundreds of local party meetings nationwide.

It underscores how slowing growth and China’s grinding trade fight with the United States have magnified the party leadership’s chronic fears of social unrest. Trade talks in Washington between U.S. and Chinese officials ended last week without an official agreement, although President Donald Trump delayed a deadline to increase tariffs on Chinese goods, saying that negotiators were making progress.
