1945

China’s economy has undergone radical change since 1978. Accession to the WTO in 2001 pushed the reform process further and had a direct impact on Chinese workers. The rise in manufactured exports following WTO succession increased the demand for less-skilled labour, the majority of which was supplied by rural areas. At the same time, greater integration with the global economy exposed previously protected industrial sectors and land-intensive agricultural production to greater international competition, exacerbating employment insecurity and income inequalities.
