Cunningham, Edward A.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper focuses primarily on the evolution of China’s domestic energy governance, the waves of centralization and decentralization that have characterized the relationship between industry and government in this sector, and the resulting structure of China’s energy industries. It is important to understand both the fragmentation of the governance structure and mechanisms available to the Chinese state, and the twin processes of ownership and investment diversification that have shaped the bulk of China’s natural energy market. This domestic context provides a useful framework for further analysis of China’s energy and natural resource investments abroad.
