With a glorious past, will China’s industrialization surely hold a bright prospect? In line with the speed of industrialization during the “10th Five-Year Plan” period, we predicted that China will have basically realized industrialization around 2020 if it can maintain the speed of industrialization of the “10th Five-Year Plan” period. However, in view of a gradual slowdown in its industrialization process, we predict that China will probably realize industrialization during 2025–2030 if it can largely maintain the current growth momentum.
