1 February 2016: The Problem of Sustainability in China’s Development

The Chinese growth model and developmental history are not only mainstay in public policy but are being emulated by countries seeking similar growth trajectories. The success of the model has propelled China not only as global superpower but the emerging example of an alternate growth strategy to the traditional western notions. Yet in recent years, a slight slowdown in the economy has been noticed. While the Chinese government is aiming to re-balance the economy, shifting the focus towards consumption and services, China’s growth model has faltered slightly for the first time in 25 years. This slight discrepancy in what has been a relatively strong growth trajectory has implications on the sustainability of the Chinese developmental agenda as well as the globe. As China moves forward it will have to play a precarious balancing act between maintaining a strong and robust economy and creating sustainable methods and strategies that can help it continue its development journey. What this balance looks like is still to be decided.
