The transformation of the Chinese state and its role in the economy during the reform period: the sustaining state ownership /

Ataçay, Meryem Nergis
China’s reform period which began in the late 1970s has been attractive both for the developing countries in the sense of taking the Chinese economic development as a model and the developed countries because of the new strategic position China has gained in the global power relations as a consequence of its economic growth, while the academic interest has also been rising. Focusing on the Chinese state as one of the most important actors of the reform process, without treating it as controlling and shaping all the other actors and the whole reform process, is one of the appropriate ways of having an understanding of China’s reform experience. This focus makes concentrating on the theories of state literature compulsory in order to present the discussions on what state is. With the intention of indicating the transformation of the role of the Chinese state in the economy since the beginning of the reform period, the overview of the state-owned enterprise reform and specifically the policies of the Chinese state in the two strategic sectors of information technology and mining since the end of the 1990s provide an explanation of the sustaining state ownership in the Chinese industry after three decades of the reform period and its relation with the transformation of the Chinese state.

Adams, Mohammed Sanus; Tayfur, Mehmet Aftih.; Department of International Relations (2019)
China’s rise as a dominant player in the capitalist world-economy is probably the most significant development of the 21st century so far.

Its economic renaissance has formed the basis of its new engagement with the rest of the world. Its resurgence in East Asia and beyond has positioned the East Asian nation as the heir apparent to the declining United States h...

Structural change in China /
Taşdemir, Fatma; Saraçoğlu, Dürdane Şirin; Department of Economics (2014)
China has sustained her high growth rate at approximately 10 percent annually during the last three decades.

In addition to that sustaining a high growth rate over three decades, China also has maintained a relatively high share of manufacturing sector in GDP, which sets apart from the experiences of developed countries, and other developing countries which are still in transition like China.

Neoliberal transformation in China in the 1980s and the 1990s
Altun, Sırma; Yalman, Osman Galip; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2012)
This thesis discusses one of the primary questions of the debates on China, the question of the nature of Chinese transformation. It is suggested in this thesis that to fully grasp the transformation of China, we need to contextualize it within global neoliberal transformations since the 1980s. It is also argued that even if the transformation in China has been heavily influenced by global tendencies, we still have to recognize peculiar characteristics of Chinese transformation. Thus, the thesis aims to con...
