A Study on Chinese State-Owned Enterprises: Literature Review and Policy Implications


Through literature review, this report analyzed the background, features and distributions of Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs), and also studied their market structure, corporate behavior and performance. With a clear understanding of the SOEs’ status and roles in market economy, as the author suggested, China should regulate and further reform its SOEs comprehensively by administrative, legislative, and self-organizing market instruments.
