In addition to these economic reforms, Deng began to allow local elections (village, township, and county levels) and promoted the importance of courts, a better way to hold corrupt officials accountable and create stability.

I was born in a family with strong cultural and poetic atmosphere. My father is a lover of Chinese traditional literature, so he has put many efforts in improving my capacity of creating graceful Chinese articles since I was a little girl.
