The Role of Public and Private Sectors

Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

Banking Regulation in China provides an in-depth analysis of the country's contemporary banking regulatory system, focusing on regulation in practice. By drawing on public and private interest theories relating to bank regulation, He argues that controlled development of the banking sector transformed China's banks into more market-oriented institutions and increased public sector growth. This work proves that bank regulation is the primary means through which the Chinese government achieves its political and economic objectives rather than using it as a vehicle for maintaining efficient financial markets.

He Wei Ping has taught at the law schools of the University of South Australia and the University of Adelaide, Australia. She also researches financial market regulation with a focus on Chinese banking and securities markets. She holds a Masters in Law from the Adelaide Law School at the University of Adelaide, and a Doctorate from the School of Law at the University of South Australia.
