Literal meaningState Assets Commission

The State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) is a special commission of the People's Republic of China, directly under the State Council. It was founded in 2003 through the consolidation of various other industry-specific ministries.[1] SASAC is responsible for managing state-owned enterprises (SOEs), including appointing top executives and approving any mergers or sales of stock or assets, as well as drafting laws related to SOEs.[2]

As of 2021, its companies had a combined assets of CN¥194 trillion (US$30 trillion), revenue of more than CN¥30 trillion (US$4.6 trillion), and an estimated stock value of CN¥65 trillion (US$10.06 trillion), making it the largest economic entity in the world.[3][4][5] Vice Premier Zhang Guoqing is responsible for the supervision of the SASAC.


SASAC was formed in 2003 to consolidate industry-specific bureaucracies.[6]: 15 

In 2017, the State Council approved a change of SASAC's mission from administering SOEs to channeling state capital into strategic economic sectors.[6]: 16 


SASAC oversees China's SOEs in nonfinancial industries deemed strategically important by the State Council, including national champions in areas like energy, infrastructure, strategic minerals, and civil aviation.[6]: 79 

The state-owned investment companies of SASAC serve as a mechanism through which the Chinese government can influence the market through the use of capital rather than government directive.[6]: 16
