The governor of Jiangsu is a position that has existed in China since the Qing dynasty.

Qing Dynasty[edit]

Under Qing rule, the governor (Chinese: 巡撫, p xunfu) of Jiangsu was the highest-ranking official within Jiangsu but reported to the Viceroy of the Two Jiangs, who was often involved in provincial affairs. Additionally, the taotais of the treaty ports were often quite autonomous and exercised a great deal of influence through their direct involvement with foreign officials and the income from international trade.

People's Republic of China[edit]

Under Communist rule, the Governor of Jiangsu is titularly the highest-ranking official in the People's Government of Jiangsu. However, the politics of Jiangsu Province are structured in a dual party-government system like all other governing institutions in mainland China. Under this system, the governor has less actual power than the Jiangsu Communist Party of China Provincial Committee Secretary, colloquially termed the "Jiangsu CPC Party Chief".
