China Public Budget Reform Program (CPBR) - Phase II

The Government of China has adopted a national reform program aimed at making budgeting more transparent and accountable through public involvement and enhanced oversight.

Building on work carried out under Phase I (102965), the China Development Research Foundation (CDRF) will analyze China's current budgeting practices and make appropriate policy recommendations; facilitate participatory budgeting experiments across China; promote exchange of ideas between agencies concerned with public finance and budgeting; and educate elected representatives, government officials and the general public in the areas under study. A dedicated website will be established to disseminate the results of the research program.
