One-Child policy vs President/Chairman having two children[edit]

The article should address why the President/Chairman has two children, the son born 1972 according to one media article I read, while the country has had a strict and somewhat controversial "one-child policy" since 1979. I am by no means well read on Chinese politicians nor Chinese policies but I think that the one-child policy is known by enough people that it deserves some mention as to why the policy did not apply to him. Perhaps just adding the dates of birth for his children and the date the policy officially came into effect will address the concern. Cheers. Veriss (talk) 04:54, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Well, the policy doesn't apply to the majority of families in China and you can pay to be excluded if you can afford it so I'm not sure I see it as particularly notable that he has 2 children unless there are some sensible sources discussing the issue.

 it's not apply to every family in china at that time,for example ,my parents have 2 sons dan 2 daughters,but we are not rich.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:41, 27 December 2011 (UTC) 
The One-child policy started in 1978. President Hu's son was born in 1971. I can't find any information on when his daughter was born, but it's very possible what both of his children were born before the implementation of the One-child policy. (talk) 05:30, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
President Hu's second child was born in 1972 [1]. Both of his children were indeed born before the era of the One-child policy. (talk) 05:36, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Correct pinyin for "Jintao"[edit]

My dictionary says the second syllable of Jintao has tone 1, rather than tone 2 as in the Wikipedia article.

涛(F濤) [tāo] great waves (from de Francis, ABC dictionary) (talk) 19:10, 27 January 2011 (UTC) richwarm

濤 can be both first tone or second tone. First tone is more common, but since second tone is not incorrect, I'm leaving it as such for the moment. --Nlu (talk) 16:29, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Fourth Generations[edit]

Actually, CPC didn't use this phrase and 核心/Core which extensively used in Jiang's era for Hu Jintao.--刻意(Kèyì) 23:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Cantonese transcription[edit]

Could an editor fluent in Yue please have a look at the Cantonese transcription of Hu's name? Is that accurate? Joefromrandb (talk) 11:08, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

It is correct. HkCaGu (talk) 15:48, 18 April 2011 (UTC)


Sorry, I was just curious about something. Why is this person sometimes simply called "Hu"? Isn't Hu his first name? You never hear anyone calling the US presidents "Barack" or "George". Thanks. 05:51, 25 May 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

As the article explains, "Hu" is the family name.--Tærkast (Discuss) 15:02, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
See Chinese name. Sean.hoyland - talk 15:10, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Personal Life[edit]

There is an error in the personal life section. Hu has given one-on-one interviews. In fact he did a really long one with I believe Fareed Zakaria in 2010. The reference citing to the contrary is old, outdated, and incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:13, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
