Chapter Summary

The limit of government power is illustrated by recent developments in administrative law in China. A milestone in these developments is the promulgation of the Law on Administrative Litigation in 1989. Law-based administration is a requirement after China's entry into the WTO and also a requirement for developing a market economy. The transformation from a management-type to a service-type government is also linked to the policy of the new leadership. It is remembered that the new government led by Hu Jintao and Wen Jiaobao has promised that its government will be more attuned to the people's needs. However, the question whether the 2004 Implementing Programme and the Administrative Licensing Law can be effectively implemented still remains. The main problem is whether the Communist Party and governmental officials will be able fully to comply with laws.
