Although I'm wondering if they expect some major (internal) conflict as the economy cools and the citizens become restive and see a strong hand as the best counter ?

I think it's more as the population ages and there's a surplus of men. You might see some ludicrous manpower projects as they try and keep the spare men out of trouble.

I don't know much about the Maoist branch of Marxist-Leninism. Do they Prozletise for International Socialism abroad? Did they ever? How is Communism expressed within China? How far are they from the Communist Utopia of no longer needing a Government?

How China Got Sri Lanka to Cough Up a Port
22-28 minutes

HAMBANTOTA, Sri Lanka — Every time Sri Lanka’s president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, turned to his Chinese allies for loans and assistance with an ambitious port project, the answer was yes.

Yes, though feasibility studies said the port wouldn’t work. Yes, though other frequent lenders like India had refused. Yes, though Sri Lanka’s debt was ballooning rapidly under Mr. Rajapaksa.

Over years of construction and renegotiation with China Harbor Engineering Company, one of Beijing’s largest state-owned enterprises, the Hambantota Port Development Project distinguished itself mostly by failing, as predicted. With tens of thousands of ships passing by along one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, the port drew only 34 ships in 2012.

And then the port became China’s.........

Building empires, one port at a time, own the port own the import/export trade route, you don't need to rule the country to control it.
A repeat of how the British empire gained control the area 200 years ago.

Chinese government plans to ensure that Chinese products are the best in the world and are prepared to invest big so that they are.
