Nakao came to Beijing to attend this week's APEC 2014 Finance Ministers' Meeting and he also attended a high-level workshop on joint research for the upcoming Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) with the National Development and Reform Commission, China's top economic planner.

Supporting the Chinese government in the introduction of an environmental tax and helping the government prepare for public finance reform and the establishment of a debt management system are among a package of policy recommendations that the ADB provided to the NDRC.

Major reforms are needed in areas such as State-owned enterprises, the financial sector, environmental protection and urban and rural development, he said.

China's GDP growth is forecast to be 7.5 percent in 2014 and 7.4 percent in 2015, the ADB said in September.

Asia will remain the engine for the world economy in 2014. Regional growth is forecast to pick up to 6.2 percent in 2014 and further to 6.4 percent in 2015, from 6.1 percent in 2013, according to the ADB.
