China Comment

Energy, Environment, and Economy

Slight Delay In Updates

Hello. Thank you for reading China Comment these past ten months. China Comment looks forward to another very successful ten months in the future!

Regrettably, however, there will probably be no updates for the remaining month of April and until the end of May. But China Comment expects to return to its normal schedule after May.

Currently, China Comment is working on two articles that hopefully will be published in an academic journal. Both articles deal with aspects of China. One is about half done, the other (which deals with China’s Energy) has just passed the literature review stage and pen has been put to paper. Those articles have absorbed much of my free time.

However, China Comment intends to return to regular updates as soon as possible.

Thank You again for your patronage!
