Zhao Kezhi (Chinese: ; born December 1953) is a Chinese politician, and the current Minister and Party Committee Secretary of the Ministry of Public Security. He is the former the Communist Party Secretary of Hebei and Guizhou provinces, and the former Governor of Guizhou province. He had also previously served as a vice governor of Shandong and Jiangsu provinces.[1][2]

Career

Zhao was born in Laixi, Shandong province. Zhao Kezhi entered the work force in March 1973 as a middle school teacher in his native Laixi, Shandong province, and joined the Communist Party of China in January 1975. In April 1984 he became the mayor and deputy Communist Party Chief of Laixi County, was transferred in March 1987 to be the mayor and deputy party chief of nearby Jimo, and became party chief of Jimo in 1989. In December 1997 he was promoted to be the party chief of Dezhou, a prefecture-level city in Shandong. From February 2001 to March 2006 he was a vice governor of Shandong province.[1][2]

In 2006, Zhao Kezhi was transferred to neighbouring Jiangsu province, where he was the executive vice governor until August 2010, when he was transferred again to southwestern Guizhou province, where he was appointed deputy party chief and acting governor. A month later he was elected by the Guizhou Provincial Congress as governor. In July 2012 Zhao was promoted to concurrently serve as the Communist Party Secretary of Guizhou; in December he relinquished his governor post, and Chen Min'er was chosen as his successor.[1][2]

In July 2015, following the dismissal of Zhou Benshun, Zhao was named party chief of Hebei province. During his term in Hebei, planning began for the ambitious Xiong'an New Area. In October 2017, shortly after the 19th Party Congress, Zhao, then 63, was appointed as the Party Committee Secretary of the Ministry of Public Security.[3] He is appointed as the Minister of Public Security on November 4, 2017.[4]

Zhao is a member of the 18th and 19th Central Committees of the Communist Party of China.[1][2]
