Articles of Incorporation authentication for ChinaEconomy – overview:
Since the late 1970s China has moved from a closed, centrally planned system to a more market-oriented one that plays a major global role – in 2010 China became the world’s largest exporter. Reforms began with the phasing out of collectivized agriculture, and expanded to include the gradual liberalization of prices, fiscal decentralization, increased autonomy for state enterprises, creation of a diversified banking system, development of stock markets, rapid growth of the private sector, and opening to foreign trade and investment. China has implemented reforms in a gradualist fashion. In recent years, China has renewed its support for state-owned enterprises in sectors it considers important to “economic security,” explicitly looking to foster globally competitive national champions. China, currently officially named the People’s Republic of China (PRC), is the world’s most-populous country with a population of over 1.3 billion; having, however, various historical incarnations. The East Asian state covers approximately 9.6 million square kilometres (3.7 million square miles) in total area and is the world’s second-largest country by land area, and the third- or fourth-largest in total area, depending on the definition of total area.
