U.S. intelligence agencies recently reported divisions emerging within the secretive Chinese communist leadership over economic reforms, as leaders appear split between those favoring more capitalist-oriented change and more ideological advocates backing tight government control over the economy.

The divisions were expected to be the main topic of discussion during the secret gathering of China’s leaders in Beijing that began over the past weekend as part of a major Party conference.

Some 370 members of the Communist Party Central Committee are taking part in the major meeting called the Third Plenum with the announced theme of “deepening reform.”
