【Abstract】A new round of economic globalization with essential characteristics of factor mobility is more conducive to developing countries with proper conditions and strategies. Since the reform and opening-up, China has seized the opportunity brought about by globalization, actively integrated into globalization, and has made great achievements in economic development. Thus, the world economic pattern has undergone a turning point. The developed economies have overflowed the trend of globalization and turned to protectionism. The developing countries, represented by China, were advocating free trade and establishing open world economy. From integrating into globalization to pushing forward globalization, China has achieved a strategic transformation in response to globalization. In the transformation of global economic governance, China has increasingly played a leading and promoting role. China will also open up a new situation of openness and development in its continuous opening to the outside world.
