National Human Development Report China

Content Manager • 6 May 2020

      This Special Edition of the China National Human Development Report marks multiple anniversaries: the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the 40th anniversary of China’s Reform and Opening Up, the 40th anniversary of UNDP and UN’s presence in China as well as the 20th anniversary of the production of National Human Development Reports in China. China has made extraordinary strides in human development from its founding in 1949 and especially since the beginning of the Reform and Opening Up. In this regard, it is the only country to have moved from the low human development category to the high human development category since UNDP first began analysing global HDI trends in 1990.
