Xi Jinping, in his speech at the Great Hall of the People where he presented the report on the party leadership's work since the previous party congress in 2012, stressed that China has experienced historical changes in this period, among which he underlined that 60 million people have come out of poverty in these five years.

The Chinese leader came to the podium flanked by his two predecessors in office, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, in an attempt to symbolize the unity of the regime over possible feuds between power groups in the CCP.
