Deng Xiaoping and the Date for Reform
On the eve of the party's 18th National Congress, reform is the hot topic in Chinese media. But unlike in the past, when discussion largely focused on the economy, the debate today is on reform in all areas – economic, social and political, particularly the latter.
All of this is raising hopes that the next stage of Chinese reform will bring fundamental changes. In particular, while political reform efforts will continue to be prudent, government leaders are expected to push harder and with more determination to strengthen the rule of law, improve transparency in governance and give people more of a voice in decision-making.
