What can we expect from the CCP's plenum session?

Top members of China's Communist Party are holding their last meeting today, ahead of a power transition next week. 

The plenum, or plenary session, of the 17th Communist Party Central Committee will be held behind closed doors, and could last up to four days.

Dr Bo is a Senior Research Fellow at the East Asian Institute.
