  • 6. CHINESE ECONOMY
    China is the fourth largest country in the world in terms of area, spanning 5,500 km from north to south and 5,000 km east to west. It shares borders with 14 other countries. Though it has the largest population in the world, China is liberating and opening up its economy at a phenomenal pace. Capitalism has taken particularly firm root among residents of urban areas.
    The tradeoff of China’s remarkable economic growth, however, has been emerging problems of economic disparity between urban and rural areas and the widening gap between the affluent and the poor. Furthermore, the western inland regions have lagged behind the eastern coastal regions in levels of economic development and urbanizations, and the income gap between the two continues to broaden.
