This chapter centers on the development of policymakers. It looks at the emergence of the Ministry of Information Industry within the context of general Chinese administrative reform. It also studies the connection between the ideological framework of the government and the communications market of China. This chapter determines that there is a huge possibility for institutional reform within China, due to the union of international consensus, the need for change emphasized by market demands, and the brokering of opposing domestic interests.

Keywords:   policymakers, Ministry of Information Industry, administrative reform, ideological framework, communications market, institutional reform, international consensus, market demands, domestic interests
