ABSTRACT
The article reports on the views of Louis Kuijs, a senior economist for the World Bank regarding China's need for rebalancing. Based on his experience with the World Bank's China office, Kuijs said that the country's local government focuses on growth and its policies have been favorable to industry which in some sense it has gone too far. He suggests that there is a need for a whole array of more structural measures to change the way China has grown.
