Xi Jinping has been the President of the People's Republic of China since 2013.
Xi Jinping was born in Beijing in 1953 as the son of communist veteran Xi Zhongxun and rose through the party ranks in China's coastal provinces. He is married to famous Chinese singer Peng Liyuan. Xi has called for a renewed campaign against corruption, continued market economic reforms, and a comprehensive "national renewal."
The BRICS group of emerging economies must promote free trade and an open world economy, Chinese President Xi Jinping said at the start of the three-day summit in Xiamen, China. But the meeting was overshadowed by the latest North Korean weapons tests.
