Miliband: China's new leader shows 'the economic revolution continues'

The question for this generation of China's leaders and therefore for us as well on economic issues, on security issues, on critical environmental issues is whether or not we can engage them in a global system that's based on rules not just the pursuit of self interest.

I think what matters is that he has been part of a leadership team that has seen China prosper from opening up and I think that will continue internationally and of course the balance that they have to strike is how much openness they allow domestically.

The message I take from this is that the economic revolution continues.
