China’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 was widely regarded as a major milestone in the development of the Chinese economy as well as the multilateral trading system. This book provides a remarkable background of information about China’s economy after WTO accession and analyses many important issues concerning China’s economic growth, international trade, transparency of trade policy, regional trade arrangements, foreign direct investment, banking sector liberalization, exchange rate reform, agricultural trade and energy demand.
This comprehensive collection provides a remarkable wealth of information and a timely assessment of China’s economic development and integration with the global economy after WTO accession.
Chunlai Chen brings together a distinguished group of scholars who employ economic theories, econometric modelling techniques and the latest statistics to analyse many important issues. These hotly debated topics include China’s economic growth, international trade, regional trade arrangements, foreign direct investment, banking sector liberalization, exchange rate reform, agricultural trade and energy demand.
Aimed at an international audience, this highly focused book will be of great benefit to academics and postgraduate students involved in Chinese economy and business studies as well as researchers in international trade and foreign investment.
