Example text

Surprising itself as well as the world, China had transformed itself into an economic superpower involved with every major issue in foreign affairs and competing in every important area of human endeavor. From trade, business and finance to diplomacy, defense and security; from science, technology and innovation to culture, media and sports—China’s growing strengths have global implications. Two statistics, telephones and Internet users, say it all. In 1980, there were barely two million phones in China, all fixed line of course.

The change China has undergone is the greatest China and the Chinese people have experienced in thousands of years,” Li Yuanchao told me, soon after his 2007 elevation to the Politburo and appointment as head of the powerful Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (“CPC” or “Party”). ” It was an extraordinary period that radically changed the mission of the Communist Party, from ideological purity and class struggle to political pragmatism and economic growth. It ushered in not only national development, but ultimately a greater change: the transformation of the spirit of the Chinese people and the increasing scope and depth of their personal freedoms.

I first came to China in early 1989, at the invitation of Dr. Song Jian, chairman of the State Science and Technology Commission (under the auspices of former CPC General Secretary Zhao Ziyang), to advise Chinese research institutes on their early efforts of reform, especially how to adapt to the incipient market economy. As an investment banker trained as a scientist, not as a lawyer, I’ve joked that perhaps at the time I seemed less threatening. 6 Yet, although for 20 years I have spent a good deal of time in China, I am neither a China scholar by training nor a China hand by profession.
