Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the dominant processes and key issues of China's governance reforms over the 30 years since the reform and opening period began. It provides the major achievements and the ongoing problems of this 30 year long process. The chapter also provides a brief analysis of the underlying reasons for these reforms and the main characteristics of China's governance model. In China the term "governance" was first adopted by economists, and terms such as "corporate governance" or "corporate governance structure" began to be widely used in discussions of corporate transformation and enterprise restructuring. The pursuit of good governance is the common goal of every country's government. State governance and public governance both come under the category of political administration. China's economic reforms originated in political reforms, but conversely once economic reforms took off they had a major impact on the political life of society and on the governance reforms.

Keywords: China's governance reforms; economists
