It is really important to visit a country, meet the people and hear their story. One sees and judge things from where one stands but when one can walk in the shoes of someone shoes even for a short time one can see their life differently. Media has the power to fashion attitudes towards others and towards whole nations, and so it makes it all the more important to immerse oneself in a culture, even for a short time, before one makes ones' mind up. China is one most ancient civilizations, contains 1.37 billion people which is one fifth of the world's population. it is forecast to be the worlds leading economies within the next 30 years. The impact it is having on all the people on the planet is increasing and not decreasing. . It is a complex nation full of contradictions and growing rapidly on all fronts and its future will affect the future of the whole world.
