China at the crossroads: Dynamics of Economic Growth and Policy Decision-making


Economic policy affects the distribution of interests among various economic agents. As China undergoes the process of transition to a market economy, the quest for fairness and transparency in the economic policy decision-making process has increasingly come to the fore. This research project combines political and economic analysis, which have tended to be conducted separately previously, and mainly through case studies focusing on specific issues, it explores the dynamics behind the policy decision-making process and China’s current economic growth. In doing so, we highlight the complex interdependence between economic activities and policy decision-making. Research issues in our project will include the personnel policy of the Party and the government, especially in relation to economic factors; re-organization of economic related governmental institutions; macro-economic policy; investment and credit control policy; corporate and industrial policy; rural policy; economic policy at the local level.
