Under Xi Jinping’s watch, China has:

· avoided a major economic crisis or currency crash

· maintained political stability

· launched a number of transformative national and international projects

They note his knack for centralizing control, the purges of his political rivals and the fact that Mr. Xi is keen to appeal to militant nationalism when he wants to mobilize citizens behind his policies. All of these traits are seen as antiquated throwbacks to the Maoist era. Perhaps the stick has been bent too far. President Xi’s core accomplishments should be given due recognition as well.
