Corporate Governance and Financial Reform in China's Transition Economy

The reform experienced by the “big four” (China's state-owned commercial banks) was aimed at addressing the problem of state ownership and its associated costs. China' SOE reform was fundamentally affected by the success or failure of the “big four” given that there were banking sector reforms, foreign exchange reserve injections, shareholder restructuring, and reform on corporate governance. Also, as China's private enterprises have yet to gain equal access to state bank credit, the banking reform also affected private enterprises. This chapter considers globalization and the shift to a market economy by looking into the corporate governance reform experienced by the “big four”. Focus is drawn particularly to issues concerned with the disposal of non-performing loans (NPL) and the big four's preparation for overseas listing.

Keywords:   big four, NPL disposal, overseas listing, globalization, private enterprises, foreign exchange reserves, shareholder restructuring
