Opinion: Is China the new global champion of openness?

"
What Xi means when he talks about openness and globalization isn’t the liberal understanding of those terms that has underpinned the U.S.-led economic order," writes Julian B. Gewirtz. "China’s economic system remains a 'socialist market economy.' Xi is offering up a version of openness and globalization that is maximally beneficial to China, as part of creating an alternative economic order in which China can dominate."
