Chinese leaders have begun a key economic policy meeting focused on economic reforms.

The Communist Party has yet to give details of the meeting's agenda. But the official Xinhua news agency said in a short report Saturday that the gathering had begun and would discuss a draft decision by the party Central Committee on "major issues concerning comprehensively deepening reforms."

The four-day closed-door session of the full 376-member committee is believed to be taking place at a heavily guarded private hotel in Beijing and will conclude Tuesday.
