The Xi–Li Administration (simplified Chinese: 习李体制; traditional Chinese: 習李體制; pinyin: Xí–Lǐ Tǐzhì) of the People's Republic of China began in 2013, when Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang[1] succeeded Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao following the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party. It is speculated that Xi will solidify the political power of General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, for the absolute command of the Communist ideology over pragmatic approach, and on the economic front there will be no liberalization but socialist entrenchment.[2]
