Zhang Wenyue (simplified Chinese: 张文岳; traditional Chinese: 張文岳; pinyin: Zhāng Wényuè; born October 1944) was the Communist Party of China Liaoning provincial committee Secretary,[1] succeeding Li Keqiang from October 2007. In 2009 he retired and was succeeded by Wang Min.

Biography[edit]

A native of Pucheng, Fujian province and a graduate of the China University of Geosciences, Zhang joined the Communist Party of China in June 1965. During the Cultural Revolution Zhang was placed in an army work troupe, subsequently being sent to Sichuan in 1969. Since then his career had been largely concentrated in the geological field until 1995, when he was transferred to work in Xinjiang as the autonomous region's deputy party secretary.[2]

From 1999 to 2001 he served as the commander-in-chief of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, before moving onto Liaoning to succeed Bo Xilai to become the province's governor in 2004.[2]
