Why is it important?

Firstly, understanding China's past economic growth allows us to identify issues that can help policymakers implement future policies. Secondly, it provides a timely literature review that synthesises recent literature that can provide directions for future academic research


I enjoyed learning about China's history as it has really achieved an impressive feat. It is truly the asian miracle indeed. However, recent issues (even pre-covid) has already concerned many, as China has focused its growth on the exports demand side which may cause its growth to slow down unless it refocuses on its domestic economy.
