China is losing its single voice – Rowan Callick

From The Australian (link):

PEOPLE naturally admire decisiveness. This is one reason why China is so widely sought by corporate Australia as a trade and investment partner.

The apparent lack of debate inside China about the direction of development would seem to underline this infectious sense of focus. Just go for it!

But although Australia Inc tends to hear only a single voice, there is actually growing contestability within China – about policy and about influence.

This doesn’t mean the Communist Party is losing control – the opposite is probably the case. It is being reinforced by economic success, and boosted by the compliments routinely showered by international business leaders on China’s growth.

But it is becoming more catholic, and differences of opinion are inevitably emerging, both within the party and beyond.
