Example text

On analysing the relative reluctance of SOEs to embrace reform, they focus on the role of two main political-institutional factors – the failure of ministries to produce firm strategies for channelling 14 Malcolm Warner and Grace O. M. Lee surplus labour and the inability of government agencies to offer a sense of managerial autonomy to SOE executives. Overall, the chapter assesses the main institutional problems in managing this slow transitional process, and focuses in particular on the principal question to arise from it: how best to handle the surplus labour problem?

In Guangdong, the residents of a village may lease their land to a single farm manager, who farms on behalf of all households; the residents then turn to more profitable, wage-earning or trading activities. Village committees across the country are starting to lease large areas of land (2–5 ha) to individuals who want to start up strawberry farms, or orchards, or nurseries, or large dairy farms, or tourist facilities. All residents lose some land but are paid a rental for it; in turn, jobs on the new farm may be given preferentially to the villagers.

In revisiting earlier published work on the topic undertaken, the authors hypothesize that the issue of unemployment will linger on in China for a long time. Lee and Warner base their observations on a labour market model to take into account the importance of job creation. Particular emphasis is put on the role of the State, active labour interventions and their relationship with the market. In his Government Work Report to the 2003 National People’s Congress (NPC) session, the then Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji stressed that the Chinese government would adhere to the policy of ‘the workers finding jobs on their own, the market regulating employment and the government promoting job creation’, and should ‘do everything possible’ to expand employment.
