Just a few decades ago, China's phenomenal rise was not only unpredictable but unfathomable. Instead of writing a complex political analysis of China's impact on our current global crisis, I decided to reflect on my personal observations spanning four decades that I have contributed to the reforms and policies that have made China a leader in trade, investment and ecological response to our climate crisis.
The story that unfolds in these pages is my own reflections from recollections of the years and changes that I have not only witnessed but been a part of the transformation that is China today.
