'Time for China to take centre stage in the world ', President Xi Jinping says



China has entered a "new era" where it should "take centre stage in the world", President Xi Jinping says.

 
The country's rapid progress under "socialism with Chinese characteristics" shows there is "a new choice for other countries", he told the Communist Party congress.
