The 17th Politburo of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), formally the Political Bureau of the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, was elected at the 1st Plenary Session of the 17th Central Committee of the CCP on 22 October 2007 in the aftermath of the 17th National Congress. This electoral term was preceded by the 16th Politburo and succeeded by the 18th. Of the 25 members, nine served in the 17th Politburo Standing Committee.

Bo Xilai was expelled from the 17th Politburo and the CCP during this electoral term, while three others (Xu Caihou, Zhou Yongkang, and Guo Boxiong) were expelled from the CCP during the 18th tenure for charges of political corruption during this electoral term.
