The budgeted State aids and the loans from the Agricultural Bank and Credit Co-operatives amount to less than 15 per 39 Communist agriculture: the Far East and Cuba cent of the circulating funds used by this industry (Cheng SL, 1987). 9 Thus, these industrial or commercial enterprises are representative of a true small rural capitalism, even if there are only a few dozen ‘great families’, realizing hundreds of thousands, even millions of yuans in turnover.

This recent move is, quite obviously, the direct consequence of the decollectivization process, as peasants needed to regain their decisionmaking autonomy in order to be free to take up their off season nonagricultural activities. It is also the result of government’s political will, with the promulgation in 1984, by the State Council and Party Central Committee of two circulars (Nos 1 and 4) which proved to be crucial: they permitted the peasants to settle in the small towns for work, they eased the administrative procedures for the creation of new workshops and services, they opened new credit lines for business, etc.

The rural industrialization, which would be the very basis of such an urban development, would then escape the heavy investments of urban infrastructures; it would stimulate the utilization of local resources and in particular the on-the-spot transformation of agricultural products.
