China: Here and Now

China Here and Now explores modern China's remarkable growth and influence in the 21st century. From e-commerce to transforming farmland into urban centres, the rise of female entrepreneurs, the influence of British culture for super-rich Chinese people, and the far-reaching possibilities of the Belt and Road Initiative increasing trade and commerce with over 60 countries, the series looks at an explosion of activities the country is undertaking to change the perception of the country as "the world's factory."
