Abstract:
Corporate governance (CG) has been introduced to China as central to establishing the modern company system. The current Chinese CG principles and legal framework are the results of China having absorbed lessons and copied advanced and matured CG models from other countries. This thesis evaluates the process of CG practice by Chinese State-owned enterprises (SOEs), and concludes that the main issue for Chinese SOEs is not to adopt a fixed model of CG to copy, but to develop a complete and continuous set of institutions that lead to effective CG in the context of China's economic and social environment. At this transitional stage, what are the significance and the functions of CG in China? And how do these functions applied in reality? During the last decade of practice, what are the achievements and problems of CG in the reform of SOEs in China? What are the future perspectives of Chinese SOEs' reform? The series of questions above describe the dynamic of this thesis. In discussing the phenomenon of CG in the reform of SOEs, this thesis reviews the debates about the role of CG in China's SOEs reform. Furthermore, this thesis will analyze the tensions concerning CG in the process of SOEs reform, in relation to ownership, boards of directors, shareholders and boards of supervisors. Moreover, explorations taking a legal approach are made in this thesis in order to find and fill the gap between theory and practice about CG of SOEs in China. The research into the CG of Chinese SOEs is a challenging and stimulating field. The aim of this thesis is to provide an analysis of the CG of Chinese SOEs and offer some suggestions for improvement to make the development of CG of Chinese SOEs more attractive to experts and scholars, so as to better guide the practice.
