Hu Jintao (born 21 December 1942) is a former President of the People's Republic of China. He served from 2003 to 2013. Hu served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China from 2002 to 2012 and Chairman of the Central Military Commission from 2004 to 2012.
Hu Jintao is educated as a hydraulic engineer from Tsinghua University in 1965. According to official biographies, he was a photographic memory. Politically, he is moderate and careful. He spent most of his previous career in the poorer provinces, and was therefore unaware of Western analysts until he unexpectedly became president. Even as a president, he has been quite private - and so has never given an interview.
