China is an old civilization and has been passing through various ups and downs throughout history. Which is very much rational and the natural cycle of human history. There was a time when Romans were at the peak, but today they stand nowhere, British and French colonialized half of the world, but today squeezed to a small state only. Ottoman Empire in Turkey was in control of parts of Asia, Africa, and Europe, but today is a small developing nation. Every peak has to pass through fall, it is a natural cycle in the history of nations. But China, the last 200 years have been suffering due to the colonializations, imperialism, and expansionism of Western World. Either it was opium war I or II or War of resistance, the Chinese suffered a lot. But with the establishment of the “The People’s Republic of China on the 1st of October 1949, China liberated finally. However, it did not end the Western world’s aggression against China. It was the economic blockade of China or war against communism threat, China was the victim in the early 1950s, 1960, and 1970s.
The story of the non-West today is that of decolonization, which is proceeding unevenly and challenged by Western powers for the most part. The IMF and World Bank were established to administer neoliberal policy, which entails neo-imperialism and neocolonialism under the leadership of the United States as the current imperial force in the world and, of course, wants to keep it that way. 

The Washington Consensus that was originally designed to facilitate decolonization was subsequently interpreted in terms of neoliberal policy favoring "market solutions," in which market power is held by the developed world and by the US in particular. China is still contending with this and is taking the long view.
