Published on Oct 22, 2017

This episode shows what it really means to be the “people’s” republic in the 21st century through the lens of everyday Chinese. From ambitious kiwi-growing farmers to a taxi driver in bustling Beijing, as well as young girls with big dreams and a passion for football, and a small-town shopkeeper whose life has been transformed by technology, we see the profound changes in people’s daily lives. It also investigates how Xi Jinping's early experiences may have shaped his vision for the “Chinese Dream” and driven him to very publicly commit to ending poverty for the 50 million Chinese still living below the United Nations poverty line.

The second episode looked at the country’s critical challenges in the areas of economy, environment and corruption. Within the economic sphere, China’s rapid investment in developing new technology, such as AI-powered autonomous drones and a ground-breaking electric sky train is helping to diversify and transform its economy. While the younger generation is spearheading these projects to clean up the environment, it is resulting in a new respect for the rule of law. Thanks to Xi’s push for a “system upgrade” across every sector, China has amazed the world.
