Almost two decades of Chinese reforms have brought about essential changes in its society and, at the same time, produced unprecedented problems, the kind of which the Chinese leadership had never faced before. On the heels of great success have followed new difficulties and disproportions. In other words, the ‘new China’ is a challenge not so much for its neighbors or external partners as for its own government. Such was the conclusion of the situation analysis chaired by Sergei Karaganov.
