    ‘Made in China 2025’ is a blueprint for raising the competitiveness of China’s industry, based on the indication that the world is experiencing a fourth industrial revolution, as the confluence of robots, artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud computing remake manufacturing.

When you consider China’s A-shares listings that will be included over the next few years, China will totally dominate that index. Everyone else will be lucky to be at 5% of the weighting. The emerging market countries are overpowered by China’s importance in the way the developed ones are overpowered by the U.S.
