China’s third plenum could lead to far-reaching reforms

Xi Jinping was appointed Chinese president just over a year ago and promised to shake up China's economy. Now Mr Xi's agenda for the next decade has become a little clearer with the conclusion of a party plenum in Beijing on Tuesday. In a statement the ruling Communist party pledged to implement wide-ranging economic reforms, with a greater role for market forces. In this week’s podcast Gideon Rachman is joined by Tom Mitchell, Beijing correspondent and James Kynge, editor of China Confidential to discuss whether this is a pivotal moment for the world's second largest economy.
