The OECD's 2013 Economic Survey of China analyses the challenges faced by the new leadership in Beijing and sets out recommendations to foster more inclusive and greener urbanisation and growth. Vincent Koen, one of the report's authors, will discuss China's recent economic performance and longer-run prospects, with an emphasis on external and internal rebalancing. Policymaking in China is increasingly focusing on the need to improve citizens' well-being, notably with the ongoing expansion of the social safety net and the greater prominence of environmental concerns. However, the pace of reform needs to be stepped up if average living standards are to double during the 2010s, in line with official policy objectives.
