The year 2008 marks the 30th anniversary of Chinese reforms.

It is high time to take stock of and assess where the Chinese economy is today. This presentation will show that much of the foundation of China's miracle was laid down in the 1980s and experienced substantial reversals in the 1990s. Even after 30 years of reforms, the reforms are far from complete.
