China Trade and Price Statistics 1988 is compiled to give a comprehensive and systematic reflection of China's development and achievements in the field of domestic trade, prices, foreign economic relations, trade and tourism since the founding of the People's Republic of China. With its rich information, this book will prove to be of practical and reference value to China and foreign economists; faculty and students of economics departments in higher learning and research institutions; and to foreign business people; as well as Chinese in Hong Kong and Macao who have started (or wish to start) investment in, and/or participate in economic and technical cooperation with China. This is the third volume of a series of statistical annuals being published by Praeger. The first two in the series are China Statistical Abstract 1988, and China Social Statistics 1986. Future volumes will include China Urban Yearbook 1988, China Industrial Yearbook 1988, and China Price Yearbook 1988.
