China Party Congress Xi Jinping

FILE - New Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping waves in Beijing's Great Hall of the People on Nov. 15, 2012. When Xi Jinping came to power in 2012, it wasn't clear what kind of leader he would be. His low-key persona during a steady rise through the ranks of the Communist Party gave no hint that he would evolve into one of modern China's most dominant leaders, or that he would put the economically and militarily ascendant country on a collision course with the U.S.-led international order.
