China Honours Man Who Reshaped World – Jane Macartney

Today the tenth anniversary of Deng’s death, is China really on the track of so called the “”socialism with Chinese characteristics” designed by Deng? From The Times:

When Deng Xiaoping came to power in the late 1970s, the tallest building in China was the 18-floor Beijing Hotel. Today the Jingguang building soars to 53 storeys and by 2008 will be eclipsed by the 330-metre China World Trade Centre.

China might still be low-rise but for Deng’s determination to open the country after decades of isolation, and to try to end grinding poverty by forcing through market-style economic reforms.

But despite his role in reshaping the nation, the memorials for Deng today, the tenth anniversary of his death, are likely to be as low-key as the man himself. [Full Text]

Here is Sina News’ special web page of Deng’s anniversary.

Listen to the song “A Tale in Spring” to laud Deng’s policy of opening and reform, especially his decision to make Zhenshen as the special economic zone.
