OECD Observer: Globalisation: neither a devil nor a panacea
Mrs Xiuhong Ma, China's assistant minister for foreign trade and economic co-operation, made clear that globalisation had been an essential part of her country's economic momentum and vitality over the past 20 years.Direct foreign investment had played a crucial role, affecting some 350 000 enterprises, and involving a total commitment of US$ 632 billion of which $320 billion had been realised already.Twenty million Chinese were working for foreign investors who were playing a crucial role in China's economic development and reform.The quickening pace of globalisation was part of China's integration into the world economy, notably entry into the World Trade Organisation which, she said, "is now within sight".To a questioner from the floor who asked why China was characterised as a "socialist market economy" she replied that her country was dominated by the state sector but economic reforms had been set in train by the government 20 years ago.By 2010 the framework would be fully in place, for reform was an "irresistible process".

said, "and business should not just mind its own business."
