On a visit to China recently, to talk to some productivity organisations, it became clear that China is aware of a current series of imbalances – between development in the coastal regions and in the hinterland; between rural and urban areas; between growing industrialisation and environmental protection, for example. It was also clear that China, in recognising these issues, is setting out to address them – but knows this is no easy task if the pace of development is to be maintained.
