China’s rising economic preeminence has been stunning, firmly ensconcing China as the second most powerful world economy replacing previously secondranked Japan. In a remarkably short span, less than 15 years, the US economy has experienced a relatively huge decline vis-à-vis China on a nominal GDP basis.China, many large companies are state-owned enterprises (SOEs), and are the most common form of entity that are involved investment.
