CHINA: The New Superpower? The spectacular rise of the Chinese economy is one of the overriding features of 21st century international politics. China has become the second largest economy in the world and one of the world’s leading exporters (although both Germany and Japan still export substantially more than China). Indeed, China runs an over $200 billion a year trade surplus with the United States.
