The first Chinese study evaluating IFI loans to China
Written by a famous economist with great influence on national policy in China
A study of China's experiences that can serve as a model or reference for other developing countries of the world, and can greatly influence the development and operation of many international financial institutions
IFI loans to China were a very important beginning to China’s opening to the outside world. This book is the first comprehensive study done in China to evaluate the overall performance and lessons of assistance from international financial institutions to China over the past 20 years.
It analyzes the efficiency of international assistance in contributing to the Chinese economy, and investigates the actual implementation of the projects and their economic, financial, social, ecological, and educational impacts. It draws on successful cooperations between the Chinese government and IFIs, analyzes major problems and lessons in project management, and provides recommendations on how to further develop international cooperations that are mutually beneficial.
