After long gap, China's ruling elite to gather for October conclave

After long gap, China's ruling elite to gather for October conclaveTop officials of China's ruling Communist Party will hold a key meeting in October to discuss improving governance and "perfecting" the country's socialist system, state media said on Friday, more than a year after the last was held. Unexpectedly, however, one was not held last autumn, amid speculation in Beijing of disagreements at the top of the party about the direction of the country, amid a bruising trade war with the United States and slowing economic growth. State news agency Xinhua did not specify an exact date for October's plenum, a closed-door meeting in Beijing of the party's Central Committee, which is roughly 370-strong and the largest of its elite bodies that rule China.
