This article examines recent government reforms in China to identify changes and lessons of the Chinese reform experience. The article provides a review of major government reform concepts and analyzes eight Chinese reform cases in four areas of government: personnel, structure, strategy, and process. These reforms have expanded the objectives and scopes of the past administrative reforms to include new governance concepts of promoting managerial competency, organizational capacity, accountability and transparency, and citizen participation. The reforms have not only reported positive lessons of local innovation and international connection but have also identified limitations and concerns about social and political stability. Implications about reform findings and challenges are provided for future studies of Chinese government reforms.
