Video: The rise of China's economy

China transforms from an economic backwater into an economic superpower.

    Sixty years after Mao Zedong's communist forces seized power, China has transformed from an economic backwater into an economic superpower.

    In a third and final part of a special series retracing the Long March - a crucial episode in the communist ascent to power - Al Jazeera visits Shaanxi province, where the march came to and end.

    As Melissa Chan reports, the end of the march marked the beginning of the communist government's extraordinary journey onto the global stage.
