In the past 245 years, there have been 27 amendments to the US constitution but it remains the foundation of US political thinking. It was a document framed in the context of 18th century political privilege where the anachronism of the electoral college is specifically designed to thwart the will of the mob. Some argue that the fixed nature of the construction is its strength, while others say that it is no longer fully fit for purpose.

China’s modern constitutional foundations are more recent, and it has adopted a more flexible approach to constitutional reform to ensure that the constitutional framework is fully fit for purpose in a changing modern environment.

The changes brought to the Sixth Plenum — held from Nov 8 to 11 in Beijing — reflect adaptations that will change the way China engages with the world, and the way that investment engages with the country.
