In this article, we use the words “state” and “government” interchangeably. However, in the context of China, the term “Chinese government” means not only the different levels (central, provincial, municipal) of the bureaucratic and administrative system, but also the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its local branches. Together all these form the Chinese government.
