China's Role in Asia and the World Economy: Fostering Stability and Growth


Given the size of China’s economy – the second largest economy in the world in purchasing power parity terms – and the size of its population – 20 percent of the world’s population lives in China – the country’s prospects of financial stability and growth are of key importance to the developing world.

Considering the role China is playing in the Asian region and the world economy, there are even more reasons to analyse and discuss the challenges of China’s economic performance.

In this book, renowned Chinese scholars and other experts in international finance and development discuss the challenges China is facing when dealing with domestic, regional and international economic issues.

The first part of the book discusses China’s economic reform agenda, the second China’s role in regional financial cooperation efforts as well as in global finance, the third the functioning of the global financial system, and the fourth China’s future challenges as seen by prominent Chinese, Japanese and Korean experts.
