HONG KONG -- The Chinese Communist Party's national congress, held every five years, opened in Beijing on Wednesday. The stock market is watching to see new economic policies that may be revealed at the congress.

Local experts and the media focus their attention mainly on three matters: reducing excessive debt, or deleveraging; state-owned enterprises and supply-side reforms; and environmental measures. Market participants are busy forecasting eye-catching policies and looking for "benefiting issues."
