Interesting. Meng's CV suggests he really didn't move around that much. I thought if you wanted to get big in the Politburo you typically had to go and put down an uprising somewhere in the periphery or at least do some administrative heavy lifting in a struggling inland province, but maybe his skillset is more based around surviving the no doubt particularly sophisticated minefield of the Shanghai area CP?
