This study explores the relationship between China's foreign trade reforms and the domestic economic reforms that undergird China's policy of openness in the 1980s and 1990s. It provides the first comprehensive analysis of how China has emerged since reform began in 1978 as one of the most dynamic trading nations in the world. It examines both the external policy changes, such as the decentralization of trading authority and the devaluation of the domestic currency, and internal economic reforms such as the increased use of markets and prices. The volume concludes with an analysis of the sources of China's export growth and outlines further domestic economic reforms that the author believes will be required to sustain China's increasing integration into the world economy.

Industry Reviews

'Lardy's book is the most up to date and best academic analysis of the trade reform available. The author has wide experience in the economic analysis of China and has brought to this study an unrivalled combination of attention to detail and analytical precision.' Christopher Howe, Times Higher Education Supplement 'Foreign Trade and Economic Reform is to be welcomed, not primarily as an analysis of the extent and causes of China's trading success, but more as a detailed and comprehensive account of the evolution of China's trade policies up to 1990.' Economics of Planning 'all those rushing to invest in China would do well to read Lardy's sobering book.' Economic Affairs
