Energy, Economy, and Its Environment in China
The consensus of Chinese official and economic circles is that Chinese Economic Studies will maintain a relatively fast rate of growth in the foreseeable future. Rapid economic growth calls for an increasing supply of energy. Generally speaking, China has fairly abundant energy resources. The huge population, however, makes per capita resources deficient. It is estimated that by about the year 2040, the population will reach a peak of approximately 1.6 billion persons. Along with the population increase, future per capita resources will continue to decrease, and the deficiency of per capita resources will become a serious limiting factor in sustained socioeconomic development.
