Abstract:The pilot reform of gender budgeting in Jiaozuo has sought its own path selection combined with the construction of modern fiscal system. The gender budgeting reforms in China face the following problems: policy implementation is not very effective; the civil capacity of participating in budgeting needs promotion; analytical tools for gender budgeting are inadequate. For future development, starting from generalizing local pilot reforms, we should gradually extend the application range of gender budgeting, as well as explore the effective integration of gender budgeting and the currently deepening of fiscal and tax reform.
