Grow Green China Inc. How China’s Epic Push for Cleaner Energy Creates Economic Opportunity for the West

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Jun 05, 2019 | Brookings Institution, Jeffrey Ball

China’s clean-energy effort - also called Green China Inc.– comes in response to a global shift to greener growth. This shift defines a new era in energy and thus in geopolitics. In this report for the Brookings Institution, Jeffrey Ball suggests that it ought also to define a new era in the West’s approach to Green China Inc.- one that serves the West’s economic self-interest and the planet’s health. Crucial to the new approach should be a rejection of protectionist policies that prop up domestic players by keeping foreign competitors at bay. Those policies have had questionable records throughout, but they are particularly ill-suited to the clean-energy sector. Now is a crucial moment for the West to grasp its economic self-interest and modernise its approach to Green China Inc.
