Known as "Boss Zhu" to colleagues for his frank talk and results-oriented manner, Prime Minister Zhu Rongji is widely respected as a pragmatic leader who kept China's overheating economy under control in the mid-1990s.
Zhu appeared on television to calm the rising tensions, surprising many by not branding the demonstrations a "counterrevolutionary rebellion" that was necessary to squash.
Zhu was made deputy premier by Deng in 1991 and then named Chinese prime minister in March 1998 under President Jiang Zemin.

 BBC News | Analysis | The laughing prime minister
Zhu Rongji's determination may stem from his experiences as a victim of Maoist political purges in the 1950s and 1960s.
The challenge for Zhu Rongji is to achieve the same success in tackling a flagging economy as he demonstrated in cooling the overheating of the early 1990s.
Zhu Rongji's supporters say that at the age of 69, he has no political ambitions beyond his five-year term, and will therefore be willing to take tough decisions like the recently announced plan to slash China's bloated bureaucracy.

 NIRA Review Summer 1998: Zhu Rongji and China's Next Great Leap Forward by Wang Yizhou
While Zhu has the reputation of a reformer, the criticism goes, his insistence that market forces be subjected to the "adjustment and control" of heavy-handed state control is obvious.
Zhu's critics are afraid that on policies ranging from reforming state-owned enterprises to fighting corruption, the premier would emphasize cultivation of the "superior virtues" of an elite corps of manager-cadres, as opposed to building the legal institutions China so badly needs.
Although both the criticisms and the praises of Zhu are based at least to some extent on reason, it seems that most Chinese in general approve of his work, especially regarding economic reform and the construction of a legal system similar to those of the advanced nations.
