Overview

Reputed to be one of the main engineers of Singapore's economic growth, Dr Goh Keng Swee had also played an important role in China's economic development in the 1980s and 1990s. Dr Goh was appointed by the Chinese government to be an economic adviser to the coastal areas of China in June 1985. Dr Goh's main task was to study and make recommendations to the development of China's coastal economic zones.

Dr Goh's collection of writings and speeches on China shed light on the various challenges that China faced in the late 80s to the early 90s. Covering a broad range of topics from the growth of industries and enterprises to financial reforms and the difficulties of doing business in China, this collection provides a comprehensive view of problems faced by the Chinese government while providing possible solutions. Despite being written two decades ago, the issues raised in these speeches and writings are uncannily relevant to the issues that the current Chinese government is facing today.
