Course Description:

     

China’ s post-Maoist economy has gained rapid growth since 1978 when it embarked on economic reforms and opening up policies initiated by Mr. Deng Xiao-ping, and because of its size, dynamic growth, and continuing reform policies, China has clearly become a major participant in the world economy. Students outside China are thus advised to understand what has happened to China’s internal and external economic development in the last two decades. This course is thus designed to provide students with a general picture of Chinese economic reforms, opening up, and development since the end of 1970s, and to introduce students to a better understanding of many of the elements of China’ s emergence and its potential role in the world economy.

       

The format of the course includes lectures, discussions of assigned readings, and some field trips. Field trips are arranged to encourage students to observe the marketisation process of Chinese agricultural and industrial economy as well as the role of government in the promotion of economic development.

       

Students are welcome to read weekly the assigned articles and recommended portion or pages of books relating to the lectures. All the readings are in English and all the articles are selectively prepared by the tutor as handouts.
