By Bjoern Conrad, Tiffany Wong and Ban Yin
It seems like an impossible task. This year, with the all-important 20th Party Congress approaching, it is crucial for the “Two Sessions” to convey a sense of calm and stability, reassuring the country that China is on a clear course into the future. There could hardly be a more difficult time to achieve this goal. Domestically, China’s government is facing the challenges of its strict No-COVID policy. Abroad, China’s leadership is trying to balance its conflicting interests in the war in Ukraine, resulting in a meandering positioning. Not ideal circumstances for conveying confidence and serenity.
