To meet the continuing growth of the socialist market economy, the latest focus on China's banking reforms is to transform the 100% state-owned commercial banks into independent, market-oriented commercial banks. This paper will show that listed enterprises in China have generally perceived that institutional changes leading to improvement over the legal and business environment are important for the success of the bank commercialization process (BCP). The effects of BCP on them are positive. Recognizing how poorly managed banking systems in East Asia have suffered in the financial crisis, the Chinese government has quickened the pace of the banking reforms in China.
