Xinhua: Tough Reform – The Grand Household Registration System

Xinhua News republished an article on Feb. 13, 2008, about the reform of the Household Registration System. During the past 50 years, the system restricted the farmers from freedom of residence and migration and thus established a big gap between cities and rural areas. The upcoming reform focuses on how to grant national treatment to China’s own farmers. This unfair system facilitated the rapid industrialization of the cities at the cost of a large amount of individuals living in rural areas. Due to the huge size of the population impacted, the grand reform is becoming one of the hardest tasks in front of the government.

HK Wen Wei Po: The Direction of The Chinese Road

Hong Kong based newspaper, Wen Wei Po, strongly supportive of the Chinese Communist government, published an article on May 15 to discuss the future direction of the Chinese economy. The article suggested that although tertiary industries such as the techology and services industries are important; it is very hard for them to compete against the West.

A future strategy emphasized in the article was to keep developing the economy’s export orientation which is believed to have been a successful approach thus far. The article also stated that the Chinese financial industry needs significant improvement, yet it should not follow the example of the West, offering too many complicated “gambling” financial tools which form what the article called the “Casino Economy”.
