- Since the death of Mao Zedong in 1976 China has entered a new era in its socialism and foreign policy. In order to meet the requirements of changes in their domestic and international environment Chinese leaders have redefined the meaning of socialism and the direction of foreign policy. As a result what they call "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" means their efforts to justify the reforms and open-door policy while upholding party supremacy and public ownership. As part of these efforts they have redirected Chinese foreign policy so as to meet the requirements of domestic reforms and national security.
