Competition in the Chinese Cellular Market: Promise and Problematic
- 66 Downloads
Telecommunications in China was monopolized by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) until 1994 when China Unicom, a joint venture with share holders consisting of the Ministry of Electronic Industry (MEI), the Ministry of Railways (MOR), the Ministry of Electrical Power (MEP) and thirteen other very large state-owned companies, was formally established. The MPT was then designated as the regulator of national telecommunications by the State Council, while China Unicom was committed to compete with China Telecom - the then renamed telecommunications operation arm of the MPT.
