Hong Kong University Press

Deng Xiaoping was regarded as a man of vision, and he tolerated opinions that differed from his. His open-mindedness and determination was conducive to establishing a new China with remarkable economic growth. In March 1980, Sir Y. K. Pao met Deng in the Great Hall of the People, and they discussed topics like China's modernization and Sino-American relations. Following a series of obstacles, the Zhao Long Hotel finally came into existence in 1985, and the hotel's opening ceremony was attended by Deng and some high-ranking officials. The Deng and Pao families gradually became intimate and dined together on several occasions. The author very much appreciated her father and Deng, and she considered these two men her guiding lights.
