Zhao Leji (simplified Chinese: 赵乐际; traditional Chinese: 趙樂際; pinyin: Zhào Lèjì; born 1957 in Xining, Qinghai) is a Chinese politician and former regional official. Since 2012, he has been a member of the Politburo of the Communist Party of China, a member of the Central Committee Secretariat, and a member of the economic reform 'steering committee' known as Central Leading Group for Comprehensively Deepening Reforms.

Zhao currently serves as the head of the Communist Party's Organization Department. He has been a member of the 16th and 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and is currently member of the 18th Politburo of the Communist Party of China. He was previously the Communist Party Secretary of Qinghai, and the Communist Party Secretary of Shaanxi.


Zhao joined the Communist Party in 1975 and entered Peking University in 1977; he studied philosophy there until 1980. He then spent three years teaching at the Qinghai Provincial Commerce School before serving in various administrative and political roles in Qinghai.

Zhao became the provincial vice-governor in 1999 (having worked in the governor's office since 1993), and acceded to the post of governor in 2002; he was re-elected in 2003. In 2007, he was transferred to become party chief in Shaanxi.

After the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012, he was appointed Politburo member and head of the Party's Central Organisation Department.[1]
