Economics Concentration

Since 1979 China has been following a new development strategy emphasizing the role of improving productivity and strengthening external economic relations. To implement this strategy, China is in the process of reforming her system of economic administration. This involves generally giving greater autonomy to local authorities and basic economic units, and greater use of a market mechanism to regulate and coordinate economic activities and to enlarge consumer choice. These changes are in recognition of past problems and defects in China's socialist economic development. Theoretical work has been carried out to justify and guide the reforms, and policies have been adjusted frequently in response to problems which have emerged during the reform process. For both traders and researchers concerned with China, a sound understanding of China's administrative system and development strategies has become increasingly important. Hong Kong's business and other institutions with interests in China have become particularly keen to recruit economists with expertise in the Chinese economy, both to help formulate trade and investment decisions and to advise on the Chinese Macroeconomic context....
