China’s development over recent decades has been impressive, as successive rounds of reform have seen the country both improve its standard of living and open up to more global engagement. The country has made remarkable progress toward the Millennium Development Goals, especially the goal on poverty reduction which was achieved many years in advance. China is now classified as an upper middle income nation with an economy gradually transitioning away from an export-led model toward a consumption-based one.
