Abstract: China is experimenting with economic development along socialist lines but which embrace principles of market efficiencies. The establishment of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone (hereinafter CSPFTZ) is meant to serve as a significant measure taken by the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee to promote reform and opening-up under changing global economic conditions and to undertake exploration of new systems of foreign investment management within China’s structures of Socialist Democracy. These systems are grounded in greater parity of access for foreign and domestic enterprises. This paper explores the parameters within which this effort is being undertaken.
