Besides financing public institutions, the government will also open the doors wider for social investment to run non-profit institutions, like nurseries, primary schools, clinics and hospitals, Wu said.

"Public service institutions, like schools and hospitals, were almost all government-run in the past. In the future, they will be run by the whole society under government regulations," he said.

Private schools, universities and hospitals have been increasing in China, but quite are still far from being popular options for people.

Most private institutions lack enough policy and financial support and can not afford to obtain advanced equipment and outstanding talent.

Wu said the reform of public institutions serves as a great chance for China to evolve into a completely new public service system. He expects the country to largely increase its support for privately-run, non-profit institutions.
