For instance, China is now the second-largest economy in the world contributing towards nearly 17 percent of the global economy and the economic output surpassing 100 trillion yuan in 2020. The country struggling a few decades ago is not having per capita GDP as 10,000 USD mark as it is now an upper-middle-income country according to the World Bank.
The progress in the reform process has remained continued with the social system becoming better democratic with rule of law and modernization of the governance systems. Over the past these years, the living standards of the people have improved, the education system has also been easily accessible whereas as a result of the economic transformation jobs has been created.

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of China’s lawful restoration at the United Nations, where China is not only a founding member but also one of the five permanent representatives at the UN Security Council. Looking back at those historic events, it is clear that the unjust political and conflicting stances by a few countries have still continued against China, especially whether it’s a COVID-19 origin or any other issue.
