Zhao replied, “China is trying to improve its investment environment, and conditions for investment are constantly improving.”

“foreign business people should have confidence in this regard,” Zhao said, “and it is our hope that the two countries will jointly reach an agreement on investment protection as soon as possible.”

Baldrige reported on the current status of technology transferred from the United States to China, while Zhao noted the annual progress made by the U.S. Government in this field.

"We hope the Urited States will keep up the momentum and make bigger strides," Zhao said, “because in the final ayalysis, technology transfer is beneficial to the both sides, because the more technology the United States transfers to China, the more of its commodities will be export’d.” Baldrige referred to a new trade bill that the U.S. Congress ‘is discussing, and said, “The U.S. Government is opposed to trade protéctionism, and if Congress adopts a bill in favor of protectionism, it will be vetoed by President Rouald Reagan.”

[Text] Chinese Culture Minister Wang Mong is currently visiting Japan at the invitation of the Foreign Ministry and the Japan-China Cultural Exchange Association. Alarmed by a student movement that flared up in China toward the end of last year, China is conducting a campaign to criticize bourgeois liberalization. Early this year, three noted intellectuals were expel.ed from the CPC on charges of denying socialisn. Foreign News Department reporter Kato interviewed Culture Minister Wang Meng to hear his views on the ongoing criticism of bourgeois liberalization in China:

[Begin Kato video report; shots of Waag Meng and his party being ushered into the residence of Yasushi Inoue, cleirmar of the Japen-China Cultural Exchange Association; shots of Wang, Inoue seated, 1 liking) Cuiture Minister Wang Meng, who arrived in Japan on 17 April, immediately visited the residence of Yasushi ‘owe, chairman of the Japan-China Cultural Exchange Association, and had a conversation with his. Culture Minister Wang Meng is hiaself an active writer in China and his work, “A Youth Who Has Come to the Organizational Department,” s consider to be progressive criticism of buveaw racy. de was criticized during th: Cultural olution. In June 1986, he war named head of the Cultural Administr=*ica.

[Begin recording) [Kato interviews Wang in a room, apparentiy inside the Inoue residence; interview conducted n Chinese with simultaneous vo'ce-over Japanese translation) [Kato] Since student demonstrations last year, Fang Lieht, Liu Binyan, and Wang Ruowang have been criticized in success ien. What do you think of the criticiem against the three?


[Wang] I cannot answer that question. The issue was handled within the CPC. Therefore, I cannot answer your question.

[Kato] What do you think are the errors committed by the three criticized persons?

[Wang] Newspapers carried reports on the issue, and I cannot say any more than chose reports.

[Kato] I would be grateful if you, ar culture minister, gave a little more details on the three, including Fang Lizhi.

[Wang] [laughing] I have nothing to say about the three. Newspapers have already on them, and I have nothing to add. The handling of the three is th» CPC's internal business. Whether they should have remained as CPC members is not a question to de discussed here. You are not a CPC mriber; therefore, I cannot discuss with you what persons are becoming of party membership. For example, I cannot discuss who is becoming of membership in japan’'s LDP [Liberal Democratic Party] or Komeito. I have no interest in Japan's political parties. I also do not fully understand the'r activites.

[Kato] Do you think that the three criticized persons can continue their writing activities in the future?

[Wang] Of course they can. This is because they are Chinese citizens. They should enjoy all rcights as Chinese citizens.

[Kato] do you mean that they can write and talk sbout anything they like?

[Wang] What they write about and cay are their own problems. Of course, as you know, China bes its Constitution. They are naturally assured of cheir rights under the Constitution if their writing activities and academic research meet the requirements of

the Constitution. [end recording]

After making the above remarks, Culture Minister Wang Meng stressed that the criticisa of bourgeois libcralization is entirely the CPC's internal process limited to the party's ideological and artistic activities. th also made the following remarks regarding the ongoing campaign in China to promote freedom of press under the slogan, let a hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend:

[Begin recording) (Wang) Opposing bourgeois liberalization has a very profound significance; that is, it means struggle against words and acts opposing CPC leadership 244 the socialist systes. Through this struggle, we can stabilize China's political situation. Free press activities and artistic and academic democrtization can be guaranteed only under such a stable situation. Writing activities are useful for political stability. On the other hand, political stability as a prerequisite for writing activities. If an upheaval or a state of panic develope in China, writers will find it difficult to produce works. Political stability benefits literary and academic activities of writers and scholars.

[Kato] As the culture winister, how will you lead cultural and literary circles in China in the future?

[Wang] The culture minister controls state and social cultural activities in compliance with Chinese laws on behalf of the Chinese Government. These activities are 11 carried ait on the basis of the Chinese Constitution and laws. However, I am also an individua. writer. Yersonally, | am one of the intellectuals in China.

Hong Kong Law Discussed HK220745 Hong Kong ZHONGGUO TONGXUN SHE in Chinese 1357 GMT 21 Ar (Report: “Li Hou Meets Canadian Parliamentary Delegation")

(Text] Hong Kong, 21 Apr (ZHONGGUO TONGXUN SHE) -- Report from Beijing: When meeting a Canadian Parliamentary delegation at Diaoyutai today, Li Hou, deputy director of the State Council's Hong “ong and Macao Affairs Office, talked about various issues, such as the Hong Kong political system and the Basic Law. The conversation lasted for about l hour. The guests bel that China has been very fair in solving the questions of Hong Kong and Macao.

In the electoral district of MP Jacques Gilbert there are many Canadian Chinese from Hong Kong. For this reason, he said he was very interested in the question of Hong Kong. He asked questions of interest to him and his electorate. He said: Reports said that some items laid down in the Sino-British Joint Declaration on the Question of Hong Kong, such as the appointment of the chief executive, are not listed in the Basic


Li Hou replied: The circumstances are not like that. The joint declaration has outlined some principles for the future Hong Kong Government system. The Basic Law will make specific and more detailed stipulations according to these principles. It is necessary to have detailed rules - regulations on whether the chief executive will come into being through elections or consultations and how the legislative organs will be elected. There is a very heated discussion of this question in Hong Kong society. There are also differences of opinion, with some standing for direct elections and others for indirect elections. The members of the Basic Law Drafting Committee also reflect the two different views.

Li Hou said: I can tell you that at the meeting of the drafting committee the Hong Kong members had a heated dispute on this issue. The mainland members did not say much about this. They deemed it necessary to listen first and so refrained from airing their views.

Li Hou conceded that a difficult issue facing the drafting of the Basic Law is the method to be used in electing the chief executive of the future Hong Kong Government. He said: “For this reason, we need time for consultation.”

Patrick Nordland, another member of the delegation, asked: Since 8 of the 1? clauses discussed in the Basic Law [as received] have been listed in the draft Basic Law, why is it that the other clauses have not been listed? Li Hou said: “I see that this gentleman has learned something about our recent meeting.”

He said: The fact is that these clauses are not excluded from the Basic Law. it is only that they are not incorporated in the general principles. This is a matter of structure. If too many things are included in the general principles, there will be repetitions in the following chapters.

Li Hou said: All regulations in the joint declaration will be incorporated in various chapters of the Basic Law. The question of how to include the main contents of various chapters in the general principles is still being studied.

After listening to Li Hou's briefing on the Chinese Government’: policies toward Hong Kong and Macao and the solution of the Hong Kong and Macao issues, John Fraser, speaker of the Canadian House of Commons, said: We think the PRC Government has been very fair in solving the Hong Kong and Macao issues. This has left a very good impression on the Canadian people. I imagine that when I return, my electorate will surely ask me about some relevant issues and I shall answer them this way: Although there will be some small differences of views before the completion of the Basic Law, the Chinese Government will act according to the joint declaration.

Li Xiannian Speaks HK231244 Hong Kong ZHONGGUO XINWEN SHE in Chinese 1234 GMT 22 Apr 87 [Excerpts] Beijing, 22 Apr (ZHONGGUO XINWEN SHE) -- This morning, President Li Xiannian

met at the Great Hall of the People a Canadian Parliamentary delegation led by Guy Charbonneau, speaker of the Senate, and John A. Fraser, speaker of the House of Commons.

In a Chinese tunic suit, Li Xiannian looked energetic. He came to the Fujian room of the Great Hall of the People earlier than planned to wait for his guests. When the guests arrived, he stepped forward and shook hands with them. [passage omitted]


Li Xiannian stressed: Relations between China and Canada have ilways been good since the establishment of their diplomatic relations. We are satisfied with this. He added: Friendly cooperation between China and Canada, and their economic, trade, and cultural exchanges have developed in recent years. He hoped that trade cooperation between the two countries would be expanded. He welcomed Canadians to make investments in China and promote various kinds of cooperation.

He emphasized: There is no conflict of interests between China and Canada. Since the two countries are far apart, there is no territorial dispute between them. Their views on many problems in the world are identical or similar.

Li Xiannian asked his guests whether they agreed with his view. They answered: “We agree.”

One of the members of the delegation asked Li Xiannian to talk about the internal situation in China. Li Xiannian said: Our country is now carrying out the struggle to oppose bourgeois liberalization. So-called bourgeois liberalization means that handful of people intend to negate socialism and oppose the leadership of the Communis’. Party.

When talking about this issue, Li asked his guests: How sany parties are there in Canada?

The guest answered: There are three main political parties. Li asked again: Are the views of these three parties identical? The guests answered: Divergent views might occur even in the same party.

Li Xiannian said: What you say is right. Three parties might hold different views, and divergent views might also occur in the same party. It does not matter. In China, those who pursue bourgeois liberalization are persons inside the Communist Party. They are not members of other political parties.

When talking about the question of opposing bourgeois liberalization, Li Xiannian reiterated that this would not affect China s policy of reform, opening up to the outside world, and enlivening the domestic economy. Li pointed out: This policy has been implemented for 8 years. It did not fal from the sky. It has developed on the basis of practice, and has resulted from summing up . th positive and negative experiences since the founding of the People's Republic. i..nce the people support this

policy, why should we change it?

He stressed: I can definitely tell you all that the policy will not change. He added: Certain readjustments or charges might possibly be carried out with regard to certain specific practices in light of actual conditions. Nothing is immutable.

Li Xiannian continued: The economy is a huge monster, and is very complicated. Sometimes, something happens, and we fail to discover it because we are not sensitive enough. He stressed: The policy as a whole will not change, but readjustments might be made constantly and frequently. The economy is like a flood. If controlled, it could help the people, but uncontrolled it could be harmful.


Li Xiannian said again: We have many economists, and they have a wealth of knowledge on economics. People say that I am also an economist, but I am not at all.

The speaker, Mr Guy Charbonneau told Li Xiannian: I am an economist, and you say you are not. But I have not heard such an excellent lecture as this on economics for a

long time.

At the invitation of the NPC Standing Committee, the Canadian parliamentary delegation arrived in China on 19 April to start its friendly visit to the country.

Confer With Peng Zhen HK260942 Hong Kong ZHONGGUO XINWEN SHE in Chinese 1413 GMT 23 Apr 87 {Report: “Peng Zhen Meets With Canadian Parliamentary Delegat ion“

[Text] Nanchang, 23 Apr (ZHONGGUO XINWEN SHE) Peng Zhen, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, said here today that the difficulties China vill meet with in its economic construction will be those in concrete work, rather than those related to policies, and those in tactics, rather than those in strategies.

He said the 13th Congress of the CPC Central Committee will make decisions on the reform of the political structure and the division of work between the party and the government. Peng Zhen said the above when he met with the Canadian parliamentary delegation headed by Guy Charbonneau, speaker of the Senate, and John A. Fraser, speaker of the House of Commons.

Peng Zhen said that China, like Canada, has a vast territory. China has more than 50 nationalities. Its economic composition includes the economy under the ownership of the whole people, the collective and individual economies, and China-foreign joint ventures. We shall meet with some concrete problems in construction and we shal! also meet with difficulties of this kind or that in the economic construction. However, as long as we adhere to the policies of reform, opening to the outside world, and enlivening the domestic economy, these concrete difficulties can be overcome.

Peng Zhen stressed that China's general principles, which are building China into a socialist country with Chinese characteristics under the leadership of the CPC, have been decided. Therefore, we have to adhere to the four cardinal principles and oppose bourgeois liberalization, because those who advocate bourgeois liberalization oppose the leadership of the CPC and oppose socialism.

The two Canadian speakers agreed with Peng Zhen's view and said that Canada greatly respects its relations with China and hoped that the friendship between China and Canada will last and that more Canadians will visit China.

The Canadian parliamentary delegation arrived in Nanchang from Kian by special plane this morning.

{Text} la the country’s drive to control ballooning administrative expenditures, priority should be given to streamlining administrative departments and reducing office staffs, a spokesman for the Miristry of Finance said yesterday.

This is one of nine requirements jut forward in a recent document prepared by the ministry and endorsed by the State Council, he said.

The document requires administrative costs to be cut by 10 percent this year. However, the official said, the key measure to ensure reduction of such costs is the

further streamlining of government departments and, in particular, a ban on the creation of new ad hoc offices that results in the expansion of office staffs.

Efforts will also be made to reduce the number of meetings. National meetings must be approved by the State Council, and expenditure on these meetings must be strictly controlled, the document says.

No meetings may be held in scenic spots or luxury hotels, the document added.
