ABSTRACT
Chapter 11 of the book "Urbanization in China: Critical Issues in an Era of Rapid Growth," edited by Yan Song and Chengri Ding is presented. This chapter profiles a number of broad municipal finance trends and prospects in China. It discusses factors unique to municipal China, reviews fiscal decentralization reforms and offers a possible reform agenda for the local public finance sector. It suggests that although China's investment in infrastructure has been quite forward-looking, the sustainability of the system remains in some doubt.
