              China's Dilemma-Economic Growth, the Environment and Climate Change examines the challenges China will have to confront in order to maintain rapid growth while coping with the global financial turbulence, some rising socially destabilising tensions such as income inequality, an o...ver-exploited environment and the long-term pressures of global warming. China's Dilemma discusses key questions that will have an impact on China's growth path and offers some in-depth analyses as to how China could confront these challenges. The authors address the effect of the global credit crunch and financial shocks on China's economic growth; China's contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and emissions reduction schemes; the environmental consequences of foreign direct investment in China; the relationship between air pollution and mortality; the effect of climate change on agricultural output; the coal industry's compliance with tougher regulations; and the constraints water shortages may impose on China's economy. It also emphasises the importance of managing the rising demand for energy to moderate oil price increases and placating domestic and international concerns about global warming. In the thirty years since China started on the path of reform, it has emerged as one of the largest and most dynamic economies in the world. This carries with it the responsibility to balance the requirements of key industries that are driving its development with the need to ensure that its growth is both equitable and sustainable. China's Dilemma highlights key lessons learned from the past thirty years of reform in order to pave the way for balanced and sustained growth in the future.

              The idea that China's economy needs to rebalance is no longer controversial inside or outside the country.

              Twenty-five years of reform have transformed China from a centrally planned and closed system to a predominantly market-driven and open economy. As a consequence, China is emerging as the new powerhouse for the world economy. China: new engine for world growth discusses the impac...t and significance of this transformation. It points out risks to the growth process and unfinished tasks of reform. It presents conclusions from recent research on growth, trade and investment, the financial sector, income and regional disparities, industrial location and private sector development. Ross Garnaut is a Professor of Economics in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, and Chairman of the China Economy and Business Program at The Australian National University. He was Australia's Ambassador to China in the 1980s.

              China is so large that its trading interests and influence are global. But its interests are disproportionately powerful in its immediate Western Pacific and Asia Pacific partners. The evolution of China's economic relationships with its Asia Pacific partners, in which APEC came ...to play a significant role in the 1990s, is thus a central part of the story of China's rapidly growing and changing interaction with the global economy. - Ross Garnaut APEC is an important forum through which China can demonstrate its commitment to economic openness. APEC has also been an important vehicle for China's trade liberalisation on the way towards accession to the WTO. In facilitating trade liberalisation, APEC and the WTO are mutually reinforcing. APEC prepares China for the WTO and WTO accession encourages China's active participation in the APEC process. Both APEC membership and WTO accession help with the huge task of China's domestic reform. This book sets out China's strategic interests in APEC in the lead-up to the APEC summit in Shanghai in 2001. Contributors include leading Chinese economists from the APEC Policy Research Centre in the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences-Zhang Yunling, Zhang Jianjun, Sun Xuegong, Li Kai, Chen Luzhi, Zhou Xiaobing, Zhao Jianglin-and from the Asia Pacific School of Economics and Management at The Australian National University-Peter Drysdale, Ligang Song, Ross Garnaut, Christopher Findlay, Andrew Elek, Yongzheng Yang, Yiping Huang, K.P.

              Since economic reforms began in 1978, China has been a focal point for observing the effects of market liberalisation. China has not only truly become one of the 'emerging giants' in the world economy but also provided a successful example for transition from a centrally-planned ...to a market economy. Thus, there is a keen interest about what lies ahead for such a significant economic player. Dilemmas of China's Growth in the Twenty-First Century is a comprehensive treatment of China's economic achievements to date and prospects for the twenty-first century. Covering topics as diverse as economic stability and growth sustainability, WTO membership and its implications, income disparity, agricultural policy, trade and investment prospects, Dilemmas of China's Growth in the Twenty-First Century is a powerful work and essential guide to the latest trends and prospects for the Chinese economy.

              China: Twenty Years of Economic Reform

              China: Twenty Years of Reform outlines the experiences of China over the past two decades. It highlights the processes of reform, successes achieved, and problems faced during the economic transition. China, and its relations with the international community, have been transforme...d. China's economy has expanded five times, and its foreign trade by twelve. It has greatly increased consumption levels of what had been about half of the world's people in poverty. - Ross Garnaut Tremendous progress has been made over the past twenty years, but much more needs to be done in setting up a more open, efficient and transparent trade system, in line with the requirements of the WTO. - Ligang Song Radical reform is neither in China's tradition, nor is it an easy task. Given the difficulties of the reform task and the structure of the political economy, it will probably take a few more years for China to accomplish SOE reform and reforms in other areas. - Yiping Huang The most remarkable aspect of China's agricultural reform was it's spillover effect. Non-agricultural activities in rural China sprang up immediately after the reforms began-the gross output value of TVEs grew at 24 per cent per annum from 1978 to 1995 and employment grew at 9 per cent per annum. - Yongzheng Yang This work, originally published by Asia Pacific Press, is reproduced here in the interests of maintaining open access to high-quality academic works no longer in print.
