Overall reflection on the thirty years of reform and opening up from the perspective of Marxist philosophy will demonstrate that every policy involved in this undertaking has undergone a process of the negation of negation that includes the phases of affirmation, negation and integration. A new round of integration on a higher level can only be assured by a new round of the negation of negation targeting new contradictions.In making a dialectical evaluation of these three decades, we should not only fully acknowledge the great achievements of this period, but also recognize the problems and underlying risks, such as the contradictions between the productive forces and relations of production, the economic foundation and the superstructure, and ideology and social being, as well as those within the productive forces and the relations of production. With regard to the mechanism of economic operation, we need to place a renewed emphasis on the state s role in macroeconomic regulation at the same time as we carry out market-oriented reform. In respect of the ownership structure, we need a renewed emphasis on public ownership as the mainstay while different forms of ownership continue to develop together. And when it comes to distribution relations, letting some people get rich first should be changed to attaching greater importance to social equity.
