The world's most populous nation now has a new President and Premier along with other new government leaders.
But will a new leadership bring the right changes to 1.3 billion Chinese citizens have been watching closely.
The leadership does seem to have gotten off to a good start. But with high confidence and trust comes high expectations as well.
On the internet, there's been no shortage of coverage of the political event, and people are more than willing to put in their two cents.
One microblogger took notice of the fact that many in the new leadership are educated in liberal arts and law, which he thinks will strengthen the rule of law in China.
Another took the recent round of institutional reforms as a sign that the new leadership is looking to make the right changes within the government.
