Chinaa€™s explosive transformation from a planned economy to a more market-oriented one over the past three decades owes much to the charismatic reformer Zhu Rongji. His pragmatism and strong work ethic have been key forces in Chinaa€™s drive to greater modernization and global stature. He served as the mayor and party chief in Shanghai from 1987 to 1991, as vice premier of China from 1991 to 1998, and then as premier until 2003. This monumental collection brings together, for the first time in English, over one hundred important speeches, articles, letters, and instructions written during his term as vice premier, when he had major responsibility for fulfilling Deng Xiaopinga€™s vision and setting China on a new and fruitful course. During this time, Zhu embarked on a plan to reduce the size of government and reform the heavily indebted banking system and state-owned enterprises as well as the housing and health care systems. His sweeping efforts ranged from lobbying for the establishment of stock exchanges to revitalizing agriculture through the introduction of a modern grain market. The ramifications of these reforms are still being felt throughout China and the globe, and Zhu Rongji on the Record provides a real-time look at these plans as they were being formulated during the 1990s. These pages also reflect the forthright personality that gained great popularity with the Chinese public. Zhu vows to speak the truth and avoid a€œempty talk, a€ as he tells his compatriots. a€œWe must tackle [reform] with both hands, and both hands must be strong.a€ To this end, he provides lists of a€œmustsa€ and a€œmustna€™tsa€ that will ensure a a€œsoft landinga€ during Chinaa€™s transition and calls for swift and resolute action, both in reform and in fighting corruption. In addition to revealing the evolution of Zhua€™s thinking and demonstrating how he helped transform the worlda€™s most populous nation, this book provides insight into the course of Chinaa€™s economic reform from the 1990s through the first part of the twenty-first centurya€”a period of time that is key to the global order today. Publication of this English edition of Zhu Rongji on the Record will be an important milestone in Sino-U.S. cultural exchange and a significant contribution to greater understanding between the worlda€™s two largest economic powers.SPEEGH AT A SYMPOSIUM ON STOCK MARKET PILOT PROGRAMS IN SOME PROVINGES AND CITIES1 August 13, 1992 Since the ...
