Insights from a Chinese grand master

Lee Kuan Yew, a former mentor of Deng Xiaoping and an adviser to every US president from Nixon to Obama, is optimistic about China’s economic prospects, but he has a unique take on the hurdles facing the country.

China is remembering the 110th anniversary of the birth of Deng Xiaoping, the Chinese political leader who has largely been credited with setting the country on its path of economic reform and modernisation after decades of Maoist madness.

Deng had a foreign mentor. His name is Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of Singapore and one of the few surviving elder statesmen from the cold war era. Lee has also provided counsel to every US president from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama.
