According to the article, during the Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee, which is taking place from October 26-29, it is expected that the current leadership will generate the following three initiatives: 1) Introduce its five-year plan. The five-year plan will be the first one introduced under the current leadership of Xi Jinping. In order to prepare for the plan, from May to July of this year, Xi visited Zhejiang, Guizhou, and Jilin provinces and hosted seminars to gather feedback from Party officials from 18 provinces and districts. 2) Launch reforms in tax, population, and environmental policy. 3)  Make personnel changes as result of the anti-corruption effort.
