President Xi’s “40-years-of-reform” speech fails to excite

 In Industry Insider, Industry News

President Xi’s spoke at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Wednesday on what he described as 40 years of reform and opening-up.  Unfortunately the speech did not address big international issues such as tariffs, trade wars and relations with other economic partners.

Several experts said the speech was self-congratulatory and was directed toward a domestic audience and inner-party.  It is anticipated that more speeches will happen in the future.
