UHD Study Abroad In China

Since the implementation of economic reform in 1979, 
China has accelerated its economic growth to become world’s second largest economy 
and world’s largest manufacturing economy. An important aspect of growth for China's
 trade with rest of the world and the U.S. is its unequal attention to development of
logistics and supply chain infrastructure complemented by effective and efficient 
utilization of its abundant natural and human resources.
