According to the news on the website of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the Communist Party of China on November 5, Gan Lin, deputy director of the State Administration for Market Regulation, was appointed as the first director of the State Anti-Monopoly Bureau (deputy ministerial level). This is the first time that the statement of the State Anti-Monopoly Bureau appeared in an official document. .
Public information shows that Gan Lin, 58 years old, is a native of Xiangyin, Hunan. Gan Lin had previously worked in Hunan for a long time and had served as a lecturer in the Department of Horticulture of Hunan Agricultural University, a professor, a PhD supervisor, and head of the Department of Horticulture at Hunan Agricultural University. In 2001, she became the deputy director of the Hunan Provincial Department of Agriculture, and was promoted to the deputy governor of Hunan two years later. In March 2011, Gan Lin was transferred to serve as Deputy Director of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce of China. In March 2018, Gan Lin served as the deputy director of the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration of China, and has taken up his new post.
Since July 2018, Gan Lin has also served as a member and secretary-general of the Anti-Monopoly Committee of the State Council. She is also a representative of the 10th and 11th National People’s Congress of China, and a member of the Standing Committee of the 12th and 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
According to a Hong Kong “Ming Pao” report on the 15th, the State Antimonopoly Bureau of the Communist Party of China has not yet been listed. Previously, the State Administration for Market Regulation planned to recruit 33 civil servants, of which 18 were from the Anti-Monopoly Department, accounting for more than half. This also means that anti-monopoly agencies will enrich law enforcement power.
In October of this year, Reuters quoted two people familiar with the matter. Under the new structure planned by the Chinese government, the Anti-Monopoly Bureau under China’s State Administration for Market Regulation will become the State Anti-Monopoly Bureau and be upgraded to a deputy ministerial level. But it is still under the jurisdiction of the State Administration of Supervision.
According to sources, the higher administrative level will help antitrust investigators obtain resources when reviewing mergers and acquisitions. After the anti-monopoly bureau is upgraded, it will be led by Gan Lin, deputy director of the State Administration for Market Regulation.
Xi Jinping has focused on private capitalists. In the past year, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee has issued signals such as “strengthening anti-monopoly” and “preventing the disorderly expansion of capital.” Xi Jinping delivered a speech in March this year and emphasized that to promote the healthy and sustainable development of the platform economy, it is necessary to strengthen regulation and supervision to safeguard public interests and social stability.
While the Beijing authorities are strengthening the supervision of large technology companies, Internet platform companies such as Tencent, Meituan, and Alibaba have accepted investigations or penalties from antitrust regulators. Among them, Alibaba was fined 18.2 billion yuan on April 10, 2021, accused of violating China’s Anti-Monopoly Law.
Although it remains to be seen to what extent the CCP’s regulatory agencies will strengthen management of China’s large technology companies, it has already aroused concerns among market participants. At the end of last year, soon after Jack Ma’s listing of Ant Group was suspended, Xi Jinping went to Jiangsu, where there were many private enterprises, and asked private enterprises to learn from the entrepreneur Zhang Jian’s spirit of “serving the country by industry” in the early Republic of China. Follow the party” and “be a politically sensible person.”
Current affairs commentator Tang Qing wrote an article on September 6 to analyze that the attacks on Internet giants and technology companies are that these companies are too large to listen to the leadership of the party, and to develop in the direction of the party, so large that the party cannot control it. Moreover, these entrepreneurs are rich in the enemy’s country. They have user big data several times the number of party members, and even hold party secrets. So I would rather kill the chickens to get their eggs than let them go overseas.
