Vice Premier of the People's Republic of China

  (Redirected from Vice Premier of China)

The Vice-Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China (simplified Chinese: 中华人民共和国国务院副总理; traditional Chinese: 中華人民共和國國務院副總理; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó Guówùyuàn Fùzǒnglǐ) is a high-ranking executive assistant to the Premier. Generally, the title is held by multiple individuals at one time, with each Vice Premier holding a broad portfolio of responsibilities. The highest-ranked office holder is informally called the First-ranked Vice Premier (Senior Vice Premier). The 1st-ranked VP takes over duties of the Premier at the time of the latter's incapacity.

Current Vice -Premiers, in order of rank, are Han Zheng, Sun Chunlan, Hu Chunhua and Liu He.

In irregular instances, the position of a Senior Vice-Premier (第一副总理) has been named either to indicate degree of power, nominal power, or when the Premier is incapacitated and requires a full-time assistant to carry out his regular duties. The most prominent case of this is Deng Xiaoping between 1978 and 1980.
