China’s Deepened Reform and Openness: Technology, Growth, and Sustainability

Following more than 40 years of reform the Chinese economy has transformed in almost every aspect. It has gone from being one of the most closed and isolated economies in the world of little relevance to the global economy and become both highly globalised and the world’s second biggest economy. In April 2018, the State Council of China has announced the decision of building up ‘a new pattern of higher-level reform and opening up’ to explore the achievement of ‘higher quality, more efficient, more equitable, and more sustainable development’ . While in the past 7 years, China’s GDP has reached a new high record from 54 trillion to over 100 trillion yuan.

A nexus of economy, technology and sustainability thus is developed in China while the country is further deepening the reform and openness. This also leads to the restructuring of the global economy. The economic paradigm, both in China and in the globe, is now shifting from the simple mass production of standardized goods (productivity expansion) into a focus on higher inputs of capital, less environmental impact, greener usage and re-usage of resource (productivity enhancement).

In search of well-founded answers to the micro and macro issues concerning the technology, growth, and sustainability of China’s development, the main theme of this special issue is the “China’s Deepened Reform and Openness”.

Submissions of theoretical and empirical studies are welcome. Topics covered may include but are not limited to:

  • Pandemic, Crisis Governance and Economic Impacts
  • Model for economic growth and sustainable innovation
  • New Reform policy and opening up
  • New economic paradigm in the emergence of technology revolution
