On Tuesday China looks back over four decades of reform that have made it one of the most powerful economies in the world.
The West seems to be amazed by China’s rapid rise and innovative capacity. For China, however, the past 200 years were an an anomaly. DW’s Frank Sieren says it’s time to throw the old cliches overboard.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has presented a picture of one of the world's great stories of economic and social advance in a highly anticipated speech. The Communist Party is marking 40 years of "reform and opening up."
Cuban leader Raul Castro, torch-bearing brother of the deceased revolutionary Fidel Castro, has praised the nation's path while calling for economic improvements. He laid blame for Latin America's ills on Donald Trump.
Speaking on the 40th anniversary of China's economic reforms, Xi made it clear that Beijing won't take orders from other countries. Though he vowed to further open up China, he offered no new specific measures to do so.
