I am currently studying the make up of the Chinese executive, and I am unclear. Seeing as you have a President and Premier, what are their distinct differences in terms of the roles they hold.
Our website has set up a special column called China’s Political System (http://www.china.org.cn/english/Political/25060.htm), which has provided a full coverage on China’s political structure, fundamental laws, rules, regulations and practices that are implemented in Chinese mainland and regulate the state power, government. Hope it will help your have a better understand on China.
The following links especially focus on the differences between China’s president and premier in terms of the roles they hold.
We hope this will answer your question.
