Abstract
The mixed ownership reform of state-owned enterprises is an important tendency of current and future reform of state-owned enterprises in China. Improving the corporate governance level of state-owned enterprises is one of important causes of the reformation. Considering the important role of auditing in corporate governance, this paper tests the influence of non-state-owned major shareholders on auditor selection of state-owned enterprises by using China’s A-share state-owned listed companies from 2008 to 2017 as research samples. The study found that the participation of non-state-owned shareholders in the governance of state-owned enterprises increased the demand for high-quality audit. Further research shows that different administrative levels and industrial competition degree have no significant influence on non-state-owned shareholders' participation in state-owned enterprise’s corporate governance.
