"It's rather remarkable that they agreed to get rid" of it, said the "Mad Money " host, shortly after The Wall Street Journal reported that Chinese officials are drafting a replacement for Made in China 2025. The plan, championed by Chinese President Xi Jinping, was meant to enhance China's competitiveness and foster the country's high-tech industries.
Peter Navarro, one of President Donald Trump's top trade advisors, has called for a repeal of China 2025, according to Cramer. "I think this would be a sign that it admits that this is about worldwide hegemony from the Chinese," Cramer said. Though he admitted he's unsure whether China will stick with working on a replacement.
According to the Journal, China is working on a new program — set to be introduced early next year — to provide increased access to the world's second-largest economy for overseas companies.
The report comes amid a 90-day truce between Washington and Beijing on any new tariffs on each other's goods while talks to settle their disputes continue. In the latest moves, the Trump administration in September levied 10 percent duties on $200 billion worth of goods from China, prompting Beijing to put tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S. goods.

Cramer later added to his CNBC remarks on Twitter, by tweeting, "2025 must be renounced by word AND deed and the PRC must stop ordering espionage NOW."
