China's rise has accelerated the pace of globalization and amplified its velocity on every front. China’s rise is transforming the post-World War II liberal international order and eroding the power base of US hegemony. China’s rise will also accelerate the rise of the non-Western world. At the same time, China is poised to unleash the vast potential for South-to-South economic cooperation and create a more conducive environment for a great majority of developing countries to pursue sustainable development in general and inclusive growth in particular. China is also poised to shape the future path of globalization and transform the structure of global governance. In so doing, China’s rise will propel the transition from a Western-centric to post-Western world order.
