The review of China’s experiences at ICPD +15 is an opportune time to document the achievements and their facilitating factors, and to analyze the challenges China still faces in fulfilling the ICPD principles by 2014, and the MDG goals before the set deadline of 2015. The review findings are not only of great importance to China, but potentially also for the international community, particularly those countries who are currently undergoing, or are likely to experience similar economic growth and demographic transitions as China.
