Sample text

China was reacting to a series of statements by Taiwan’s president, Li Teng-hui, about the island’s political status and associated US statements and decisions. In 1996, a major breakthrough in informatization policy was imminent. That year, the leaders decided to upgrade the pre-existing joint conference for national informatization (the NIJC) and set up the SILG within the State Council. The head of the new SILG was a vicepremier, as with the NIJC, but the new group was to meet once or twice per month instead of twice per year as before.

Zhao’s former secretary, who accompanied him to Tiananmen Square in a famous last effort to convince the protesters to leave it, was Wen Jiabao, who subsequently became premier of China from 2003 to 2013, and who was later one of the leading advocates of informatization in the leadership. The events were so momentous that Chinese leaders were obliged to propagandize their view both of the demonstrations and of the issues they had raised. The leadership views were firmly imposed on the public consciousness of the country, including through trials of some of the demonstrators and a massive propaganda campaign.

The leaders were making an unmistakable recommitment to the need for talented, energetic leaders who understood the political implications of informatization and reform. The associated government-wide decision that year was the elevation of the information economy to the status of ‘important objective’. A National Informatization Joint Conference (NIJC) was set up to lead the effort. The CCP appeared to be moving quickly with the related decision one year later to set up a new corporation, China Unicom, to manage mobile phones independently of China Telecom, the state-owned body.
