industry in China. Different stages of the regulation process with policy intervention and market competition are
examined. The interaction of different players like the Chinese government, incumbent operator, and competitive
operator is analyzed. In the paper, two general theories of regulation, public interest theory and the economic
theory of regulation are firstly introduced. Theses literatures are later used to explain the current regulatory
particularities of Chinese telephony.
