Water Resources and Economic Development in China


  • Wei Xue


On the basis of an overall analysis of the characteristics of China's water resources, their current development, utilization rate, and problems, this article studies the interrelationship of Chinese Economic Studies, social development, and the use of water resources. In view of the serious conflict in water supply and demand the country faces at the end of this century and into the next, the author suggests that the solution to China's water shortage lies chiefly in the building up of an overall water-conserving national economic and social system.
