China - Country partnership strategy (Chinese)

This Country partnership Strategy for China focuses on five thematic areas of engagement that build on the Bank Group's international expertise while maximizing the creation and dissemination of knowledge of China's development processes inside and outside China. In particular, the Bank Group aims to help: 1) Integrate China into the world economy by deepening its participation in multilateral economic institutions, reducing internal and external barriers to trade and investment, and contributing to its overseas development efforts (pillar 1); 2) Reduce poverty, inequality and social exclusion, through promoting balanced urbanization, sustaining rural livelihoods, and expanding access to basic social and infrastructure services, particularly in the rural areas (pillar 2); 3) Manage resource scarcity and environmental challenges, through reducing air pollution, conserving water resources and optimizing energy use (partly through pricing reforms), improving land administration and management, and observing international environmental conventions (pillar 3); 4) Deepen financial intermediation, by expanding access to financial services (especially among small and medium enterprises), developing the capital markets, managing systemic risks, and maintaining financial stability (pillar 4); and 5) Improving public and market institutions, by improving firm competitiveness, reforming public sector units, and rationalizing intergovernmental fiscal relations (pillar 5). The Bank Group will support the Government's activities in these areas through a variety of Instruments, including lending and analytical and advisory activities by the IBRD; IFC investments to strengthen financial institutions and shift assets into the private sector while also helping the private sector to adopt international practices; and MIGA guarantees to support infrastructure development through foreign direct investment. The key risks to the Bank Group's development effectiveness in China are stagnation in the reform process, financial sector difficulties, an external shock, a health epidemic such as the avian flu, or social instability leading to an economic slowdown. Each risk is being carefully monitored, and the Government is taking measures to address each of them.
