The ‘institutional innovations’, which were informal institutional arrangements that gave profit incentives to farmers, state-owned enterprises (SOEs), and even local governments, are highlighted as the Household Responsibility System (HRS) in 1979 which lasted until 1984, Budgetary Responsibility System (BRS) starting in 1980, the Contract Responsibility System (CRS) which began in 1981 and lasted until the late 1980s alongside direct lending by state-owned commercial banks (SCBs).

China has been in transition for more than thirty years from a centrally planned economy, which had followed Soviet-style heavy industrialization for a time, toward becoming a marketized economy. China adopted its reforms gradually or incrementally during this period. By so doing, it has phased in market forces into an administered economy but without a fundamental ownership transformation into a privately owned economy. Economic reform in China is a partial reform strategy, which has been characterized by institutional innovations and regional experimentation (for example, Qian and Xu 1993; Fan 1994).
