Analysis on issues identified and comparison with risks ofChina projects were made. The purpose is to learn from others’ experience.The achievements of the thesis will help World Bank financed projects in China to carry out a risk-list based dynamic risk management model throughout the project cycle.In addition, it will also help domestic procurement policy maker and executor to betterunderstand the policy gap between World Bank requirements and domesticrequirements, which will benefit future policy adjustment and project implementation.
