With a land area of 9.6 million square kilometers and a population of over 1.3 billion, China is the world’s second-largest state by size and the most populous country. One objective of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s “Chinese Dream” is to achieve a “moderately well-off country” by 2021 when the Chinese Communist Party celebrates its centenary. Realizing the dream, according to Xi, requires a second phase of transformative economic reform. During this process, China is tasked with narrowing and eliminating the interethnic developmental gap.
