Wen Thiet Quan, 71 years old, is famous for agricultural and rural policies, saying that China needs to promote the economy towards people by promoting autonomy and meeting all the needs of people.

Mr. Wen's point of view immediately criticized from investors and supporters of China's economic reform, outstanding among them is the Tung Tung, the famous economist who worked at the University of Humanity.

Mr. Huong, former economist of the Chinese Agricultural Bank (ABC), posted articles on social networks Wechat, said that Mr. On's proposals are no different from closing self -sufficiency and basically will

China has been closed with the world for nearly three years, when the country implemented a strict Covid policy, in order to identify and prevent all cases of infection in the community of tracing measures, drastic blockade and drought.

Prime Minister Ly Khac Cuong in March announced that the Chinese Government would continue the policy of reform and opening, as well as the flow of Truong Giang and Hoang Ha rivers will not be reversed.

However, in the context of China's economic tend to go down and the situation of the world has many complicated developments, the country continues the policy of closing, or resuming trade and international exchanges is being

This question is now more important when the Chinese Communist Party prepares the 20th National Congress from October 16.

According to Wang, who has many years of monitoring the economic and political situation of China, this is the reason why a recent comment on the past -p retrorter of China has attracted great attention.

The article has a new perspective on the retreat policy to radiate the port under the Ming Dynasty, Thanh, published in the journal Historical Research of the Chinese History Academy in June, in which the argument that the Chinese dynasties

The article argues that the policy of self -opening this border opening is historically suitable, although they affect the development of China, when the leaders refuse to accept modern technology and weapons of

After being shared by the Chinese History Academy on social networks recently, the article nearly 15,000 words spread strongly, sparking fierce debate about the perspective expressed in it, as well as committed to reforming.

Some critics believe that the article deliberately justified the retreat policy of the Ming and Thanh Dynasty's ports, causing China to be underdeveloped.

Meanwhile, this theoretical supporter argues that the Chinese covid policy, closing most of the country with the rest of the world, can be considered as a test to check the ability to admire.

The opening policy was implemented by the late Dang Tieu Binh leader 40 years ago that paved the way for China to develop strongly, becoming the second largest economy in the world and the country of the largest commodity trading globe.

The leading leaders of China, including President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Ly Khac Cuong, have repeatedly declared that the country will not close, but will be more expanded to the outside world.

But in recent years, that commitment began to cause skepticism, when Xi continuously emphasized his self -reliance and self -sufficiency when it comes to economic and technological development, and promotes an economy.

Xi also issued a series of domestic policies, including common prosperity policies and tightening management with fields from technology to private education, mainly targeting non -state enterprises.

Meanwhile, non -COVID policy also reduces China's interaction and contact with the international community in many aspects.

Editor -in -chief of SCMP said that before the Party Congress, the leading leaders of China were under increasing pressure from the question or opening of the country.

After nearly three years without leaving China, he practiced on September 14 to Kazakhstan on a three -day trip to Central Asia.

At the opening ceremony of the Party Congress, Xi plans to have an important policy speech, outline China's strategic priority in the next 5 years or longer, which sets out an important direction to the economy.

Xi's speech will be very concerned, in the context of Chinese investors and businesses waiting for major policy changes, in the context of the situation there are many uncertainties.

Chinese leaders will have to take specific actions to make the commitment of reform and opening become clearer, helping to ease the anxiety that is expressed through the debate about the 'retreat policy.
