Since the initiation of economic reforms in 1979, China has become one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. China's rise to be crowned as the world's second-largest economy today is the latest milestone in a boom that has been running almost constantly since the country began the long process of embracing free-market principles more than 30 years ago.

As the world economy sags, China’s economy faces challenges. Some hot topics, such as inflation, international trade, environment protection, lower income groups, etc., have aroused the strong interest of academic scholars. Meanwhile, stock market volatility, inflection point of real estate, and crisis of small and medium-sized enterprises have also been discussed widely.

This special issue deals with issues revolving around China’s hot topics of economic growth and management, such as how to interpret China’s current economy and how to skillfully handle the relationship between maintaining fast yet steady economic development, restructuring the economic structure, and managing inflation expectations.
