Background: In Yugoslavia, the Chinese leader Hua Kuo-feng continued his historic tour with an inspection of a farming complex and engineering works. During this first ever tour west of Moscow by a Chinese leader, Mr. Hua has taken a special interest in Yugoslavia's method of production, but he has also upset the Kremlin.
SYNOPSIS: Mr. Hua has received r???using welcomes in Yugoslavia wherever his visit took him. But the reaction in Moscow has been different. Yugoslavia and Rumania are both Communist countries pursuing policies independent of Moscow, and Mr. Hua's tour of these countries has drawn comment from the Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev. He said China was building up tensions and setting countries against each other. Meanwhile Mr. Hua has taken particular interest in Yugoslavia's management methods. This farm produces mainly dairy products.
Mr. Hua has emphasised his country's interest in both the rapid modernisation of its economy, and in Yugoslavia's unorthodox Marxist system of workers' self-management. Officials said Chairman Hua was eager to study the decentralised nature of the Yugoslav system, with its production incentives and flexible management structure. mr. Hua showed his interest by taking time to talk with individual workers and managers, and he visited their flats. After his nine-day tour of Yugoslavia, Mr. Hua visits Iran, on the Soviet Union's southern flank.
