It took China just 21 years to turn from an aging society to a deeply aging one, compared with 100 years for Europe. To get from deeply aging to ultra-aging, China will require only 11 years. The trend will have a profound impact on society.

The OECD is projecting an uneven K-shaped economic recovery from the pandemic in 2021. Richer countries with more extensive vaccine rollouts that can afford to reopen and reflate their economies will do so. Poorer economies will struggle to stay healthy and avoid debt crises. But the mantra that “no one is safe until everyone is” highlights the need to spread health, wealth, and self-respect to all. An increasingly prosperous China can and should play a central role in this effort.

Because of its huge population and uneven development, China remains the largest developing country in the world. Everything is in transition. We ask that the country not be judged by imagination. Rather see it for what it is, in good faith. We are a hardworking nation setting great goals and striving to improve our lot.
