The 2012 workshop on inter-governmental relations organised by the China–Australia Dialogue on Public Administration explored in some detail current practices and challenges in allowing a degree of local autonomy within national public policy frameworks in China, Taiwan and Australia. The differences are hardly minor, relating to history, constitutional arrangements and the law, economic and political development, culture and size of population. Yet many of the underlying issues are common, including the degree of autonomy given to sub-national governments, the distribution of financial powers both vertically and horizontally, respective roles and responsibilities, accountability between levels of government and to the public, and the supporting management arrangements. In addition, there is the challenge of establishing a stable framework within which the system can adapt to changing circumstances.
