Abstract

Deng Xiaoping initiated an “open door policy” in 1978 to reform and modernize the Chinese economy, promoting foreign trade and investment as potential catalysts for growth. In the 30-plus years following reform and opening-up, China’s economy developed at an unprecedented rate, averaging about 10% per annum, and that momentum has held steady into the twenty-first century.
