Introduction: China’s Public Finances – Decentralization, Poverty and Social Security
PFM, Vol. 9 No. 1, (2009)
China’s public finances have played an important part in the country’s economic performance. As the focus of development strategy changes from exports to domestic consumption and to the establishment of a harmonious society, China’s public finances are now called upon to play a different, and even more important, role in economic and social development. The papers in this symposium address some of the issues arising from the new policy context.

China’s pattern of fiscal decentralization is also compared with that of India.
