Chinese government’s NGO funding peaks in 2012

12 Feb

New data from 2012 has shown that the Chinese central government has increased its share in the funding of non-governmental organisations. It is said that the government has invested up to 320 million yuan in these projects. The reasons for this is to allow organisations to effectively register themselves as social organisations, whereas prior many did not bother to register. The hope is to make it easier to sponsor these organisations thereby creating more effective social organisations. 

The question arises whether it will be effective. Only time will tell, however, it is evident to point out that this may lead to a more bureaucratic form of Chinese central government. Furthermore, the willingness of the Chinese government to sponsor these activities may see financing of more social organisations creating more of a collective society as a whole. It may also lead to a more open nature for external intervention from International NGO’s.
