Item description for Guangdong: Preparing for the WTO Challenge by Joseph Y. S. Cheng...
This volume aims to study preparations for China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) on the part of the Guangdong provincial government, local governments, enterprises and individuals; examine the opportunities available for Guangdong and its comparative advantage relative to other provinces, as perceived by different segments of the population; analyse anticipated problems due to China's entry into the WTO; and critically assess Guangdong's preparations to meet the challenges and to make adjustments in its development strategy.
Given the spectacular economic growth of Guangdong and its importance to Hong Kong, this volume not only will be a useful reference for academics, business executives, government officials, journalists, and other professionals whose work is related to the province, but should also be of interest to the general public who follows developments in China and Hong Kong.

Reviews - What do customers think about Guangdong: Preparing for the WTO Challenge?
Another book to cash on China's WTO entry Feb 20, 2004
This is just another book cashing on the fact that China's economy is booming after entering the WTO. It isn't well written at all, and there's nothing very new here. The facts can easily be found in many other sources and the author provides few new perspectives. Not much worth whether to the academic or businessmen.
