Shanghai’s Minhang District, which is a success story of public budgeting reform in China, has made unprecedented breakthroughs in budgetary preparation, examination, execution, and supervision. Though a relative newcomer to the area of reform, Minhang District has demonstrated advantages in its reform concept, institutional design, standardization, and influence. Of course, to accurately understand the nature and significance of Minhang’s public budget reform, we should not consider the reform independently. Instead, we need to consider it in the overall context of Chinese political system reform, identify the general patterns of Chinese reform, and then identify the unique characteristics of Minhang’s reform.
