Summary In the 1980’s the rural government of Zouping county guided the rapid development of industry through the corporate management of public enterprises and pooling community resources. This type of government-led growth, in which privatization and the formation of new private firms plays a secondary role is called “local state corporatism”. In Zouping, the local state corporatism has continuously evolved since the 1970’s, with privatization only beginning to take hold in the early 1990’s. Zouping has moved from the simpler, cadre-centered form of governance to a mixed model, appropriate to the larger industrial economy of the mid-1990’s.
