Xianglai Tang

Professor Xianglai Tang was a Visiting Fellow at the LSE Asia Research Centre from Nanjing University of Finance and Economics where he is Director of Public Finance Department.

Professor Tang has published in academic journals, and has also published two books. He is interested in the ways that public management reform relates to the state and social culture, focusing in particular on a new model of public management—Public-private Partnerships. Professor Tang is involved in studying Chinese public-private partnerships (PPPs) theory and reforming current public careers by PPPs model. He is currently applying his interest in the social and political sciences to a study of attitudes to the environment. Professor Tang regards public management as being always embodied in political, social, and economic processes, and his aim is to establish a Chinese model of public management reform.
