China - Long-term development issues and options (English)

China's ultimate economic objective is to catch up with the developed countries, while maintaining a socialist system in which the benefits of prosperity are widely shared. Major, though uneven, progress toward this goal was made in the past three decades. During the next two decades, there could be substantial further progress. The foundation for rapid and equitable growth in the twenty-first century could also be laid. But this will require steering a difficult course, in both development strategy and system reform. This report looks at some of the key issues for China in the next twenty years, and at some of the options for addressing them, especially in light of international experience. It covers many specific topics, including agriculture, energy, technology, transport, industrial location, internal and external trade, population, education, employment, and finance (health was addressed in another recent report).
