China leaders outline future growth

Communist leaders convene to chart future of world’s second-largest economy in a bid to shift from export-driven model.

    China's top Communist Party leaders have begun drawing up ways to handle their booming economy at an annual central committee meeting in the capital, Beijing.

    They will approve a new five-year plan for the country's 1.3 billion people, with key slogans emphasising ideas such as "socialist countryside" or a growing "harmonious society".

    Melissa Chan reports from Beijing on how China is seeking to establish a domestic consumer-driven economic model.
