September 01, 2002 -- Finance & Development, September 2002 - What Will WTO Membership Mean for China and Its Trading Partners?
By Ramesh Adhikari and Yongzheng Yang - On December 11, 2001, after 15 years of arduous negotiations, China became the 143rd member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The opening of an economy as large as China's can be disruptive to some developing countries in the short run, but, in the long run, it should benefit not only China but also its trading partners.
September 01, 2002 -- Finance & Development, September 2002 - Is Globalization Good for the Poor in China?
By Shang-Jin Wei - Developing countries worry that opening up to trade with the rest of the world may make the poor poorer and the rich richer, with China sometimes cited as an example of growing income inequality. A recent IMF study, however, finds that the reality is far more complex.
March 01, 2001 -- Finance & Development, March 2001 - The Financing of Private Enterprise in China
By Neil Gregory and Stoyan Tenev - A 1999 survey of more than 600 private Chinese enterprises revealed that they relied primarily on self-financing. For China's private sector to thrive, firms will need increased access to external loan and equity financing.
June 01, 2000 -- Finance & Development, June 2000 - Comrades or Competitors? Trade Links Between China and Other East Asian Economies
By Prakash Loungani: Has China's emergence as a major exporter dampened the prospects of other Asian economies? Although many have suggested that the answeris "yes," the evidence to support such an adversarial view of trade links between China and East Asian economies is hard to come by.
September 09, 1999 -- Finance & Development, September 1999 - The Chinese State as Corporate Shareholder
By Harry G. Broadman: Despite China's commitment to reforming state-owned enterprises, many are still not operating like commercial businesses. Although some of the enterprise reforms have worked, others have led to unanticipated problems. This article outlines some measures that could improve the process.
