How Officials are Transferred and Promoted: A Beijing Case Study

Southern Weekend has published a lengthy report on how officials are transferred and promoted. ChinaGeeks translated the first segment:

How does an official go from a local government worker to a provincial cadre? What are the crucial reasons for this elevation? What aspects are most important? What kind of officials can most easily be groomed for elevation? What are the strengths and weaknesses of “experienced” officials vs. “specialist” officials? What are the similarities and differences in the paths of elevation for officials who work within government offices vs. members of a local government?

Southern Weekend will attempt to outline the pattern of advancement for Beijing-region officials, and then, using this as a representative sample for in other cities as well, show what this reflects about the standards for the promotion and transfer of officials nationwide.
