China “Super-ministry” Plan Faces Super Challenges

From Reuters:

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday unveils a bureaucratic redesign that he hopes will foster greener, more efficient government by creating new “super ministries”.

Yet with fierce rival interests at stake, experts said the plan was unlikely to end turf wars over energy policy, pollution and industry giants.

The reforms will herd together dozens of agencies, creating big departments for industry, transport and the environment, according to officials and local press reports that have dubbed them “super ministries”.
