The Celestial Empire is currently making the jump from the 19th to the 21st century within only a few decades. The driving forces for such enormous economic growth are industry and the building trade, and they, above all, need iron and steel. Today, no other country on earth uses and produces as much of the stuff that progress is made of. Worldwide, iron and steel prices have risen dramatically, because demand in China continues to grow. This episode shows how iron and steel are produced in China. China’s optimism and the speed at which the changes are taking place are impressive. Especially China’s east coast is profiting from the economic growth. But the gulf between rich and poor is getting greater and greater in the People’s Republic.
