Book Description

Presenting the most recent statistical data, Investment and Employment Opportunities in China provides first-of-its-kind coverage of the regional economic, industrial, investment, and employment structures in China. After establishing the theoretical foundation, the rest of the book utilizes the model and the methodology presented by the authors to analyze the various investment and employment structures within China.

Addressing the problem of strategic optimization of macroeconomic systems, the book illustrates the current state of investment and employment opportunities in more than 30 provinces, cities, and autonomous regions within China. It explores the current direction of relevant structural adjustments, orders, and intensities.

The book employs the concept of comparative earnings and relevant models and addresses the problem of strategic optimization of a macroeconomic system, involving economic structures such as regions, industries, sectors, investments, employment, and distributions. A must-read for anyone considering investing in or seeking employment in China, it supplies proven theorems, methods, and concrete suggestions for navigating the various economic structures within China.

Although the book provides suggestions on optimizing economic structures in China, the theories presented are general and can be used to investigate the investment and employment climate of other countries and regions. Outlining the basic conditions of imbalances in China’s regional economic and industrial structures, the guidelines presented in this volume will help you make more informed decisions regarding international investment and employment opportunities around the world.
