Asian Development Review: Volume 32, Number 1

Publication | March 2015

What are the economic, social and policy issues confronting the People's Republic of China as it moves towards a lower but more sustainable and inclusive growth path?

This special issue contains a selection of papers on the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) economic growth and on policies that influence its pattern. It is generally accepted that the PRC can no longer sustain the double-digit growth rates it experienced in the last 3 decades as it undergoes economic transformation.
