In conjunction with the 28th Annual Conference of Chinese Economics Society Australia (CESA) that will be held at James Cook University, Cairns Campus, Australia, on 17–19 July, 2016, Sustainability will publish a Special Issue on the sustainable development of the Chinese economy, with the theme being “In Search of New Sources of Growth: A Sustainable Approach”.
The past three decades have seen rapid economic growth in China, which, on the one hand, increases the welfare of ordinary Chinese citizens by increasing their real income, and, on the other hand, creates a number of challenges that increasingly constrain China’s sustainable progress in the future, such as environmental pollution, regional disparities, and income inequality. For instance, the severe smog in China’s major cities is likely to cause health problems. Currently, it appears that Chinese economy is transiting to a lower growth trajectory, namely a so-called “new normal” (新常态), and meanwhile policymakers are in search of new sources of growth, both internally and externally. It is thus opportune to review and evaluate China’s economy from a sustainable perspective, which is the main focus of this Special Issue.
This Special Issue will open to researchers, both from the conference and the wider academic community. Major topics include any issues related to the sustainable development of Chinese economy, such as economic growth and sustainability, structural reform in China, and China’s economic relationship with the world.
