China’s proposed reforms include provisions to loosen its one-child policy and bolster land rights for local farmers, according to a report by David Lerman and Josh Tyrangiel.

Paulson believes resistance and corrupt practices could hinder the faster implementation of major policy changes in the Asian nation, according to the article.

“I think they’ve got a lot of work to do. I hope they succeed, and I’m cautiously optimistic because it will be good for China and good for all of us,” Paulson told his audience.
