Industrial, Resource constraints: energy and raw materials., Weakness in capacity for domestic innovation., Production structure is not rational: too much heavy industry, not enough service., Agriculture foundation is thin and weak., Obstacles to scientific development continue to exist and are difficult to remove.
Social, Mismatch in investment and imbalance in consumption., Income disparity, Poverty, Basically 60% of the population is employed in agriculture, doing the work that could be done by 5% of the population, distribution of that wealth is unfair and unhealthy., tends to be inter-regional rather than intra-regional., Urban/rural development is not coordinated., Employment system is imbalanced., Social contradictions are progressively more apparent.
Solution, Economic development, Solves all problems, Development must be “scientific,” practical (unconstrained by ideology), human centered, and sustainable.
Industries, Nine key manufacturing industries, Seven strategic industries, Energy saving and environmental protection (clean energy technology), Next generation IT, Bio-technology (pharma and vaccine manufacturers), High end equipment (airplanes, satellites, high speed rail, power plants, manufacturing technology), New energy (nuclear, wind, solar), New materials (rare earths, nano technology, carbon fiber and related), New energy autos and related (electric and hybrid cars, batteries)
Balancing, from investment toward consumption, from foreign demand to domestic demand, public, consumer, increase wages
Implementation, Local government to create plans, The ability of the central government to exert it's will on what happend at local level is often exaggerated
Consequences, More demand, Chinese receiving subsidies
