PostHeaderIcon WTO estimating China will become first world economy power to 2014, what is your advice?

Question by : WTO estimating China will become first world economy power to 2014, what is your advice?

Best answer:

Answer by BSherman

I don’t really have any advice related to this, except that western countries need to accept the reality of China’s rise.
