China's leaders meet to hammer out 5-year economic plan

'Dual circulation' development concept set to be centerpiece of blueprint

SHANGHAI -- Some 200 members of the Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee, the country's top policy-setting body, are gathering in Beijing for the party's fifth plenary session. The country's leaders will use the four-day, closed-door meeting that starts Monday to discuss long-term economic and social development strategies.

At the center of the talks will be China's 14th five-year economic plan and the country's goal to become the global leader in technological innovation and other areas by 2035. But the plenum comes amid a slowdown in growth, aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic and escalating tensions with the U.S.
