Communist China's third era: 2012 to 2035?

On the opening day, the party's general secretary and the country's President Xi Jinping delivered a grueling three-and-a-half-hour speech. There was talk of a "new era" and repeated references to the "Chinese dream" of the "rejuvenation of the Chinese nation."
