Chi Fulin: Three Important Signals

Famous scholar, Chi Fulin, who acts as an important advisor in Chinese reform and development research, believed that the Third Central Committee Plenary Session of the Seventeenth CCP National Assembly sent three important signals.

The first was rural reform, which he claimed was the central point connecting the rest of the reform strategy; the second was to stabilize the macroeconomic environment, which heavily relies on expanding rural markets;the third defined the focal point of rural reform – the increasingly larger gap between cities and rural areas, which was believed to be a primary reason for social conflicts.
