The goal of the 1998 State Council reform in mainland China is to cut the total number of the government functionaries by half. The work of simplifying government agencies and fixing the number of government staffs was designed to be completed by the end of 1998, and three years were to be used to find work for those who have to leave their posts in the process. The State Council reform has been carried out in two stages: the formulation of the plan on the fixation of the functions, structure, and size of the departments under the State Council, and the implementation of the plan by each department. For this reform, the State Council formulated the “regulations on Fixing the Structure and the Functions of Central-Level Government Organizations” and the “Regulations on the Arrangement of Work for the Central0Level Government Staffs Who Have to Leave Their Posts.” In July 1998, the State Council issued the “Plan on the Study and Training for Personnel of Departments under the State Council Who Have to Leave Their Posts.” Although most of these people (numbered at 16,000) are not interested in the study and training programs and prefer to be transferred to enterprising units, institutions, and grassroots-level organizations, a total of 13,000 of them must attend the study and training programs, with only remains 3,000 being able to transfer to the above-mentioned units or to retire. Such an attitude doubtlessly will have an obverse effect on the efforts to reform the state-owned enterprises, to separate functions between the government and the enterprises, to restructure the provincial-and county-level organizations, and to improve the quality of government staffs.
