China’s Future Leaders

From Forbes:

They came of age during China’s economic reforms of the 1980s. For them, the Cultural Revolution is a distant memory. Unlike China’s current leaders–who are engineers–they studied economics, law and political science. They are China’s rising political stars, poised to run the country in a decade.

Speculation among China-watchers is brewing that the next generation of leaders has been anointed after Communist Party mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, put five men in their 40s on the cover of its Huanqiu Renwu (“Global Personalities”) magazine last month.

Current rising leaders got the same treatment before they were elevated to China’s most powerful body, the Politburo, in 2007, Singapore’s Straits Times has noted.
