With ongoing tension between China and Japan, and in the wake of North Korea's latest nuclear test, China's National People's Congress will meet in Beijing in early March to finalize the country's transition to a new generation of leaders and set out government priorities for the coming year.

The speaker will discuss the latest developments and the approach of the new leadership under Xi Jinping towards international affairs.
