From the Paper:"For centuries China kept to itself, feeling no need for communication or trade with the rest of the world. As Emperor Ch'ien Lung wrote to England's King George III in 1793: "... Our ways have no resemblance to yours ... we possess all things. I set no value on objects strange or ingenious, and have no use for your country's manufactures." Chinese attitudes remained very much unchanged from this point of view for almost two more centuries. However, the last twenty-five years, since the late 1970s, have seen an explosion of international trade with China, as it has relaxed controls and joined the worldwide globalization movement."
