Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the past 30 years, China has achieved an unprecedented development miracle in human history. How did China achieve this? What are the key drivers for such a rapid growth? And most importantly, what can be learned from China 's success? While many factors could be identified to explain China 's success, it is no doubt that the numerous Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and industrial clusters that emerged after the country 's reforms are two important engines that have been driving China 's rapid development. The key experiences of China 's SEZs and industrial clusters could be best summarized as: gradualism with experimental approach; strong commitment; and an active facilitating state with strong pragmatism. This book reviews the development experiences of China 's SEZs and industrial clusters through extensive research, field visits, and case studies in an attempt to benefit the policy-makers, development practitioners, scholars from developing countries, and the global development community in general. It contains five detailed case studies three SEZs in the broadest sense (Shenzhen, Tianjin and Kunshan) and two industrial clusters (Wenzhou footwear cluster in Zhejiang and Xiqiao textile cluster in Guangdong). This volume represents the most comprehensive volume to date on China's experiences with both its SEZ and cluster experiences.

Book News Annotation:

China's gross domestic product (GDP) has been growing at a rate of more than nine percent annually, and the country is expected to top Japan this year to become the second largest economy in the world. Zeng (senior economist, World Bank) examines the strategies China has used over the past 30 years to achieve such an impressive growth rate. While the how and why of China's phenomenal growth are subjects of continuing debate, the author contends that its numerous special economic zones (SEZs) and its industrial clusters are certainly two important drivers in the country's economic success. The author uses several case studies to explain how the two strategies have contributed to China's GDP, employment, exports, and its ability to attract foreign investment.
