Chapter Summary

Former General Secretary of the CPC Jiang Zemin initiated China's Western Development program in 1999. In 2000, the central government issued the first programmatic document on Western Development. This chapter discusses the context of changing historical conditions and the entry of China's economy into a new stage of development, what are the important experiences and lessons that can be derived from the Western Development Strategy and how can it continue to be improved? The Western Development Strategy is the concrete incarnation of Deng Xiaoping's "Two Overall Strategies" theory. During the seven years since the implementation of the Western Development Strategy, with the state's support in planning guidance, construction projects, funding, and policy measures, dramatic changes have taken place in Western China.
