China in the global economy: Memo from Beijing and Chongqing, July 2011Published Mon 25 Jul 2011
The scale of China's economy and its growth are well documented but worth repeating. China has grown at around 10 per cent a year for 32 years and now boasts the world's second-largest economy. But despite these extraordinary figures, China is not complacent about the challenges that it faces. In addition to China's major economic challenges - including inflation and the need to rebalance towards domestic consumption - this report also touches on China's social policy and opportunities for Britain in China, including a case study of Hewlett Packard's operations in Chongqing.
