In this May 4, 2012, file photo, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping speaks at a conference to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of Chinese Communist Youth League at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. China's leaders displayed unity among the top ranks in two days of meetings with ministerial and provincial-level officials ahead of a once-a-decade political transition this fall that has been overshadowed by a scandal. Xi, who is on track to take over from President Hu Jintao in the fall's party congress, indicated in a closing speech on Tuesday, July 24, that there would be continuity in government policy after the handover.
