Abstract

While the Chinese local administrative reforms so far have aimed at adapting to a market economy, in Pudong administrative reform has focused on setting up a local government that conforms to WTO rules and managing a market economy that integrates domestic and foreign investments. This article evaluates the results of the Pudong administrative reform and argues that the reform was part of building up an infrastructure conducive to investments. The reform obviously achieved the objective of attracting large capital investments, but there is still much room for improvement in the setting up of a fair economic market for all competitors.
