Why China?

 

“China has telescoped into one generation what other countries took centuries to achieve. No country (let alone one of continental proportions) has tried to accomplish so much in such a short time. China’s unique attempt to complete two transitions at once –from a command to a market economy and from a rural to an urban society—is without historical precedent.”

“Nowhere in the world is there a market like this—nowhere. To me, the 21st century will be the Chinese century. China will change the economic balance of the world.”

--Guy McLeod, President, Airbus China
