China is a new development model for the world
China’s development requires it to continue its unremitting efforts, but the path it has chosen is right and the successes it has achieved and will continue to achieve will provide our world with a new model of development. China was still a poor and backward country in 1949, China’s tomorrow will be much better. At the beginning of its advent, the new China was then a country at the same time poor and backward, while it became today the third largest economic entities on our planet and it is a miracle that no one can deny.
Some Westerners are worried that China could become a powerful country on a global scale. And that is why it is impossible for scholars of China and the media of some Western countries to consider China’s development justly and objectively. Chinese economic development benefits primarily its people and it is impossible for the spectators to feel this. Economic development is not only reflected in the volume of export trade and GDP (gross domestic product) per capita, but more importantly, it contributes enormously to the improvement of infrastructure, the development of national public education, the raising of the standard of living of the population and the development of the whole of society as a whole. On the other hand, economic growth allows China to increase its aid capacity to some underdeveloped and developing countries.
Vietnam: another success story of the Asian development model Initially, a poor and bloodless country, with development blocked. At the turn of the eighties, Vietnam emerged from three successive wars, first with France, then with the United States, and finally with Cambodia. He is desperately poor in terms of the per capita product, which is of the order of 100 dollars, as infrastructure equipment or access to basic social services (health, education, drinking water). Despite the predominance of agricultural activities, he struggles for some years to ensure his food self-sufficiency. Not that the government did nothing, but because the meager national resources were drained by the war and the current economic model was not very effective.
The change, of course, is formally dated from the 6th Congress of the Vietnamese Communist Party with the first economic reforms centered on the decollectivisation of agriculture. Since then, touch after touch and in this cautious and progressive way that characterizes decision-making in Vietnam, market mechanisms are becoming increasingly important in the regulation of economic activities; the private sector, both domestic and foreign, is growing in importance; the country is opening up to trade and foreign capital and is preparing to join the World Trade Organization (WTO).
Turkey is one of the developing countries. In 2009, it ranked 79th out of 177 countries in terms of the level of development because of the gaps between the eastern and western parts of the country. When visiting Turkey, we can easily observe that the western parts have a much higher level of development In the parts located in central and eastern Turkey, the level of development is much lower than the mentioned rank.
We will examine the advantages of Turkey as a developed country, and what are the advantages of Turkey as a developing country. Traditionally, almost a third of Turkey’s population lives in villages, and they survive on agriculture. Most farmers in Turkey use traditional and old methods and tools, but there are farmers working in modern and modern ways. In Turkey, we can see farmers moving their crops through horse-drawn vehicles, others using a modern tractor.
