Over the past three decades, Chinaa€™s economic structure, direction and international presence have undergone a dramatic transformation. This rapid rise and Chinaa€™s enormous success in economic terms has created new challenges, and this book examines how the Chinese economy can continue to flourish, whilst at the same time protecting the environment and giving people more equal access to the benefits of the countrya€™s economic development. Examining the key issues surrounding China's continued sustainable development, in economic, political, social and more traditional environmental terms, this book assesses the costs of China's rapid development to date and in turn asks whether this can be maintained. The contributors show that the idea of sustainable development must take into account more than just the physical environment, and that there are additional problems relating to the sustainability of Chinaa€™s economic growth that are much more complicated. Divided into two broad sections, the book looks first at the broader issues of sustainability in China, before turning to the more classic idea of sustainability, that of the environment. In doing so, the contributors show that sustainability is a far more complex phenomenon than is often assumed, and that economic and social sustainability are inherently linked to linked to environmental sustainability. Dealing with what are arguably the greatest challenges facing China today, this book will be will be of great interests to students and scholars of Chinese studies, Chinese economics and Chinese politics, as well as those interested in development studies and sustainable development more broadly.Shenzhen GTA Information Technology Company. ... outside directors, corporate executives, investment relationship managers, corporate lawyers, business consultants in several Chinese cities such as ... of observation period (some variables, such as the percentage of institutional shareholding, only have about 2, 977 observations), 5 the final ... that statecontrolled firms have significantly higher profitability and are also valued higher on the stock market than non state- controlled firms.
