Written by Maidah Tariq 7:52 pm

Maidah Tariq explains that China’s journey to becoming a modern state began with the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1911.

Mao’s economic policies faced challenges, but Deng Xiaoping introduced reforms in the 1990s that led to massive economic growth. These reforms included incentives for workers, encouraging private farming, promoting township and village enterprises, and focusing on education.
