This chapter examines telecommunications policy in China and the possible direction that it is going into for the future. It looks at the bureaucratic competition that is involved in telecommunications and its consequences for policy and determines the transformations that occur in both the economic and technological contexts. This chapter shows that pluralizing decision-making, which has been widely ignored, can actually strengthen and support the authority of the Chinese government.

Keywords:   telecommunications policy, bureaucratic competition, economic context, technological context, decision-making, authority, Chinese government
