中国自20世纪70年代实行改革开放政策以来，经济一直以惊人的速度发展。粮食、肉类、钢等工农业产品的产量一直在显著增长;原子能(atomic energy)、计算机技术、航空航天(aviation and aerospace) 技术等方面也已经达到世界先进水平。预计到21世纪中叶，中国将基本实现现代化，达到中等发达国家的水平。目前，中国经济发展水平的地区差异较大，东部沿海地区比较发达，而西部地区相对不那么发达。中国正在进行西部大开发(Western Development Strategy）,以缩小各地区的经济发展差异。

The output of the industrial and agricultural products, such as grain, meat and steel etc, has been growing markedly. And the technologies of atomic energy, computer, aviation and aerospace have reached the world advanced level. It is predicted that China will basically realize modernization and reach the level of the medium-developed countries by the middle of the 21st century. Currently, China’s economic level varies widely among regions. The areas along the east coast in China are fairly developed, while those in the west are comparatively underdeveloped. Due to this, China is carrying out the Western Development Strategy so as to narrow down the economic gaps between different regions.
Recently, the Chinese government has decided to upgrade its industry. Now it is involved in constructing high-speed train, ocean ship, robot, even planes. Not long ago, China got the contract of building a high-speed train in Indonesia. At the same time, China also got the contract of providing high-speed trains with Malaysia. It proves that people believe in the products made in China. Chinese-made goods has become more and more popular. China has paid a price for this, but it not only helps to eliminate poverty, but also provides job opportunities to people around the world. It is a good thing that is worthy of praise. When you go to the store next time, you may want to know where the product you bought is produced. It is very likely that it is made in China.
