BEIJING, Nov. 29 (Xinhuanet) -- China can share its experience with the world in helping developing countries reduce poverty in a more efficient way, said Wang Dan, analyst with the Economist Intelligence Unit, in a recent interview with Xinhuanet.

This could be one of the fronts that we can look forward to for the upcoming G20 summit to be held in Argentina, she said.

"In terms of poverty alleviation, China is absolutely the 'star student' of the world," she said.

Speaking of China's achievement in poverty reduction, she said poverty alleviation started late in China, but thanks to its economic miracle in the past forty years and rapid urbanization, the accomplishment in poverty reduction is also an amazing achievement for economic development.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of China's reform and opening up.

Asked what changes impress her most, she mentioned the development of China's transportation, especially the high-speed rail and express ways, saying that China can now export the technology to developing countries is also quite impressive.

On China's opening up, she said China is now the largest market and foreign firms hope to get more opportunities from China's reform and opening up.

Meanwhile, China can learn from developed economies in fields of advanced manufacturing, education and health care, she noted.
