Doing Business In China Guide

Back to News

China is the great economic success story of the past 30 years. Since the “reform and opening-up” policy was introduced in 1978, China has changed beyond recognition.

A Soviet-styled planned economy has transformed into a vibrant market-orientated economy and 600 million people have been lifted out of poverty. Between 1985 and 2010, 70% of the world population who had been lifted out of poverty were Chinese. Without China, the global poor population would have risen by 58 million.

Well known for its manufacturing capability, China is the largest global producer of toys, textiles, washing machines, cameras and computers (among hundreds of other products). It is also the world’s largest consumer of iron, steel, coal and cement, and China’s hunger for raw materials continues.
