The Peopleâ€™s Republic of China and Global Imbalances from a View of Sectorial Reforms
This paper examines the impact of sectorial reforms on current account imbalances, with a special focus on the Peopleâ€™s Republic of China (PRC). In particular, we investigate to what extent reforms pertaining to the financial sector, social protection, and healthcare may contribute to a rebalancing of the PRCâ€™s persistent current account imbalances. Our forecasting results suggest that reforming the financial sector would be a significant contributor to the countryâ€™s rebalancing with an effect much larger than that of capital account liberalization. Strengthened provisions of social protection and publicly-funded healthcare are also found to contribute to a rebalancing of the PRC economy.
