Description - Industrial Reform in China by Kate Hannan
At the Fifteenth Party Congress held in October 1997, China's leaders confirmed their intention to effect state enterprise ownership reform. As a result many state enterprise workers now face the prospect of losing their jobs. This will test the tolerance of the urban work-force and may challenge the political authority of China's leaders. This book analyses the industrial reform measures taken by the Chinese government during the decade 1985-1995 and identifies the economic and political tensions and contradictions that state enterprise reform has presented to a leadership intent on maintaining its authoritative political position. Using government sources and interviews with economists and workers at one of China's largest state-owned enterprises (The Second Automobile/Dongfeng cor poration) Hannan concludes that the relationship between state policy and enterprise is a complex two-way process characterised by tensions resulting from conflicting priorities.
