About this book


Communist Party of China General Secretary and Chinese President Xi Jinping has since taking power in 2012 launched a series of domestic reforms that have long-term consequences both internally and externally. These reforms aimed at the great ‘national rejuvenation’ of the Chinese people seek to convert China’s domestic strengths into global standing and leverage. Underlining the intimate connection between Chinese domestic policies and its external policies and outreach, this volume assesses a range of key domestic forces driving Chinese growth today ranging from economic reforms to governance practices to analyze their impact and influence at home as well as on China’s foreign and security policies in its near and extended neighbourhood. The volume also looks at specific themes like technology, agricultural development, reform of state-owned enterprises and the use of Party bodies to engage in foreign propaganda work among other things to offer examples of the merging of Chinese domestic political and foreign policy interests. In the process, the volume offers its readers a better idea of China’s place in the world as the Chinese themselves see it and the implications over time for China, its neighbourhood and the wider world.
