MEANWHILE, TODAY IN CHINA

After the hoopla yesterday of the American Presidential election, today brings the quiet, almost secretive ascension of a new Chinese President.

China is about to get a new leader and two thirds of the country’s top decision makers will be replaced. Big news as we push harder and deeper into the Asia Century.

Today at the 18th National Congress in Beijing, 2,000 hand picked delegates representing more than 82 million members of the Chinese Communist Party, will get the show started when they select 200 people for the Central Committee.

These Central Committee members will then choose 25 members of the Politburo – the ...

    What, no comments? I love Monica’s well-researched and NEW facts and insights on major issues of the day. We have a real live journalistic gem here!

    I am sure we Hooplarians are capable of balancing the rare opportunity afforded by this great blog to emote at last with smart likeminded women over the outrages we have encountered in this sexist life – with the gift of new facts on a wider span of topics dished up in life-sized bites.

    Monica is the real deal. More power to her.

    We’re disengaged but hardly our fault. There’s a disconnect. I can’t tap into China the same way I can tap into the US and Europe via social media and newspapers.

    I know the Chinese have switched the lights back on but not much else. I don’t know who’s who. Sorry, Monica. But please do keep us up. I just put the Global Mail on my reading list.

    And I’d be very interested to know more about the Chinese Hui Muslim women. Probably a million stories like that to be told that I and others here would love to read.

    There is a disconnect Rhoda which is what I suppose the Asia Century paper is about..it needs to be addressed at school level from an early age. I am no longer at the Global Mail by the way.

    Ahh, wrong paper – sorry. Will take a look at the Asia Century.

    Been thinking about this, Monica and how interested I am in Chinese history. I love the novels of Amy Tan and Jung Chang – all those. Wild Swans is one of my favourite books. Mao’s Last Dancer was riveting. I can’t get enough of these sort of stories. It’s an absolutely fascinating culture.

    We definitely should get to know them but how to put aside. An amazing country and people living lives I can’t even imagine.
