A lot has changed since China first opened its doors to the world in 1978. The country’s transition from a closed nation with strict regulations on trade and other economic activities to one that is fully integrated into the global economy has been a gradual process, but it has taken place at an accelerated pace over the past three decades. In this blog post, we will explore how globalization in China has affected everything from business practices and government policies to people’s lifestyles. We’ll look at some of the challenges that globalization poses for Chinese society as well as potential solutions. *Image: global.jpg There are many excellent websites with information about globalization in China, but one of the most comprehensive sites is that maintained by the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE). The institute’s website provides an overview of how and why China has opened its doors to the world since 1978; much more detailed data on changes in trade flows; examples from recent negotiations between China and other countries such as WTO membership or bilateral deals like NAFTA or TPP; discussion of some consequences for Chinese society–including a survey indicating growing opposition among young people against economic openness because they’re afraid of losing their jobs to foreigners; and potential solutions including improving access to education so that workers have skills relevant outside their own country, creating insurance programs
