The bureaucrat benefit by running various auto companies as they enjoy a steady investment capital from Government. The policy of joint ventures of Chinese and Foreign manufacturers aims at helping the local ones to learn from their global competitors. This strategy also helps establishing large conglomerates of business that can then directly compete with large multinational firms.
