Development of Township and Village Enterprises and Transformation of the Ownership System

Part of the Research Series on the Chinese Dream and China’s Development Path book series (RSCDCDP)

Abstract

Over the three decades, a striking characteristic of China’s economic development has been the rise and rapid growth of township and village enterprises (TVEs). TVEs grew in rural areas; were collectively established by grassroots governments, entrepreneurs, and rural population; engaged primarily in industrial activities; and had completely different production methods from agricultural production.
