This chapter suggests that Guangdong province’s next round of reforms be staged in both the economic domain and in the government system. Guangdong’s governmental reform should establish a more open and transparent government, and a more flexible culture and value system. First, Guangdong should transform into a service-oriented government by building a regulated, internationalized, fair business environment. Second, Guangdong should ensure a ‘rule of law’ government. Third, Guangdong needs to further ease restrictions for the registration of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) while reducing the size of government. Finally, Guangdong needs to build a more open and flexible cultural and value system, while increasing tolerance in government.
