China‘s Western Development Strategy (WDS) has been carried out since 1999 withremarkable achievements, whereby Western China also experienced a rapid and stable developmentduring the past decade. This paper analyzes policy actions and effects of WDS. The findingsindicate that Western China‘s economic development has experienced a dramatic reversion afterimplementation of WDS, which to a certain extent, proves that WDS has played a significant role inpromoting western regions‘ development. This paper also reveals some key constraints on WesternChina‘s economic development and then offers a set of policy ideas for the next stage of Westerndevelopment.
