    Quite interesting, anyway this is a kind of paranoia i think, also in Romania in Ceausescu's ages everyone have seen in new thing an agression from the occident.
    It seems that this paranoia is quite common to all the comunists regims.

    This might be right, depending on the on which side you are looking. The big companies will surely do anything to have access or even control of a market with more than 1 billion possible buyers.

    On the other hand, China has done some incredible developement in the last decade and it is still developing. Granting the freedome to make yourself a company is just the other way the communism is working, where everything should be everybody's. These companies want's to make their way before some of these 1 billion souls will make them some competition.
