Does "China’s rush to modernize and the communist government’s celebration of science and technology" refer to "China’s rush to modernize (science and technology) and the communist government’s celebration of science and technology"?

Thanks in advance

************
China’s rush to modernize and the communist government’s celebration of science and technology have firmly embraced scientists and scientific achievements, sometimes uncritically. And into that permissive milieu has walked a plethora of opportunists ready to take advantage of the situation with padded CVs, fraudulent and plagiarized articles, bogus medicines and medical procedures carried out without clinical evidence.

    Note the sentence has two parallel subjects. So it can be split apart: it says both of these things:

    1. China's rush to modernize has firmly embraced scientists and scientific achievements.
    2. The communist government’s celebration of science and technology has firmly embraced scientists and scientific achievements.

    Part 1 tells us that the "modernization" of China will be done partly (or mostly) by using newer technology.

    But no, it is not talking about a "rush to modernize science and technology".
