China reform agenda seen under ideological cloud – Reuters

From Reuters, via A Glimpse of the World blog:

China’s economic progress is being threatened by ideological rifts and bureaucratic profiteering, a senior official

economist said, as China’s parliament began discussing a national development plan.

Members of the government-vetted National People’s Congress on Monday mostly extolled the blueprint for continued economic growth while spreading more wealth to the country’s poor that Premier Wen Jiabao presented at the opening session on Sunday.

But Wu Jinglian, an influential economist who sits on an advisory council that meets alongside the parliament, said China faces deep problems not fathomed by official plans ” and solving them is stalled by official self-interest and contention between pro-market reformers and resurgent leftists.
