China has embarked on an economic reform programme to re-balance its economy and improve its prospects for stable and sustained economic growth. Any government with the ambition to reform the economy faces political obstacles. For China, still a heavily regulated economy with substantial government interference, the task is even bigger. What are its chances for success? What reforms are critical to deliver on its ambition? Can it get reform momentum with the assistance of global economic institutions like the WTO? And if China reforms itself successfully, what does it mean for EU-China economic relations?
