The rapid growth over the past three decades has been instrumental in lifting over 600 million people in China out of poverty. International evidence has made it clear that a global economy based on current pattern of consumption and production is simply not sustainable. Policymakers have been advised that economic growth, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability must be integrated into national development strategies. A limited number of studies are devoted to structural transformation and China's structural imbalances, social disparities and innovation on growth and productivity. This book addresses the alarming environmental consequences of China's growth patterns within an overall quality growth framework. It contributes to the literature and current policy discourse by expanding the policy analysis to include several important new areas using the most recent data available. This book represents the first attempt to integrate the issue of environmental sustainability into the quality growth context, providing readers with a comprehensive account of China's success and challenges in its three decades of rapid economic growth.
