The only way to achieve this goal is through joint ventures and acquisitions are ways to China Telecom to cooperate with Private Firms. The company even offer to give operating rights to smaller but capable shareholders even if the company holds the majority of shares.

Top conglomerates in China such as China Petroleum and Chemical Corp. and CITIC Group has announced spin offs and restructuring plans as local authorities started to experiment with new management structures. The move follows the announcement that was made by China’s Communist Party in November that the government is pushing reforms that will increase the role of the market and the private sector in State owned enterprises was deemed inefficient.
