Congressional-Executive Commission on China: Annual Report 2018   [open pdf - 1MB]

This is the 2018 Annual Report of the Congressional Executive Commission on China, presented to the One Hundred Fifteenth Congress on October 10, 2018. From the executive summary: "When the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (Commission) was established in 2000, the prevailing wisdom underpinning U.S.-China relations maintained that increased trade and economic interconnectivity, as well as diplomacy and robust cultural exchange, would lead to greater openness and political liberalization within China. In the years that followed, the Chinese economy grew dramatically, while the Chinese Communist Party became even more deeply entrenched in the political power structure and deeply committed to preserving its monopoly on power through state-sponsored repression, surveillance, and indoctrination. [...] The report that follows highlights the dire human rights situation inside China and the continued downward trajectory, by virtually every measure, since Xi Jinping became Communist Party General Secretary in 2012 and President in 2013--the latter post likely to be his beyond 2023."
