Until the 1990s, Northeast China was the cradle of the new China’s industrial base that made the most historic contribution to China’s reform and opening-up program. However, as China’s modernizing reforms deepened, the Northeast’s economic development gradually began to lag behind China’s eastern seaboard. This is a story of decline and rejuvenation: after the slow disaster witnessed and endured in the lonely silence of years, the people of the Northeast ultimately once again discovered the belief and confidence that their great region would rise again from the ashes.
