  • Description: The article discusses how the Chinese government has launched rural programmes, resulting in significant transformation in the countryside. While local governments follow the discourse of the higher-level governments in this process, they also restructure the state apparatus for programme implementation. Local governments have some autonomy by echoing and responding to the initiative of the higher-level governments actively. The state-led rural programmes enable the state to regain its leading role in the countryside and restore the rural public administation to some extent.
