China's recent phenomenal economic growth has been sustained primarily by China's rapid and continuous industrialisation. Currently industry accounts for over two-thirds of China's gross domestic product, and since 2009 China has been the world's largest exporter of manufactured products. This book explores the question of how far this industrial growth has been the product of government policies. It discusses how government policies have developed and evolved, examines how industrial policies are linked to policies in other areas, such as trade, technology and regional development policies, and assesses how new policy initiatives are encouraging China's increasing success in new technology-intensive industries. It also demonstrates how China's industrial policies are linked to development of industrial clusters and regions.
