BEIJING — China unveiled its new generation of leaders on Thursday, installing Xi Jinping as Communist Party chief, following a weeklong historic party congress that gave few clues about the country’s future direction.
In a debut ceremony at the Great Hall of the People, Xi and six other men were revealed as the new members of the Politburo Standing Committee, the central group at the top of decisionmaking for China’s government. Xi, 59, will complete his ascension to president of China during the National People’s Congress next March, succeeding Hu Jintao after a decade. Vice Premier Li Keqiang is expected to succeed Premier Wen Jiabao, and the size of the standing committee has been reduced from nine to seven members.
