China’s integration in the world economy is perceived as one
of the major events in the world economy in recent decades.
As a result of the large inflow of foreign direct investment
(FDI), China has become one of the leading trade nations
worldwide. China’s opening to the outside world,
privatization of state-owned enterprises, urban and rural
industrial development, and pursuit of economic plus
ecological policies (green GDP) are presented as key
elements of the so-called socialist market economy of Chinese
origin. The situation in China tends to present some very
contradictory features: in terms of GDP per capita, China
still belongs to the group of developing countries but, on
the other hand, Chinese enterprises are set to become highly
competitive – and active in the international business

„China and the World Economy“ is a topic-oriented edition
of the bi-annual journal, Berliner China-Hefte/Chinese
History and Society, which analyzes issues related to
China’s integration in the world economy and the related
impacts. Employing interdisciplinary approaches, the authors
ask whether the driving force of global economic trends will
lead to profound changes, not only in foreign and domestic
business, but also in China’s overall economic and societal
development: what kinds of new trends can be identified, for
example, in the fields of investment, innovation, trade and
finance? How are institutional, regional and/or
environmental changes observed at global and domestic
levels? And, consequently, how do these trends introduce new
analytical perspectives on China’s economic rise after three
decades of reform?
