With China expected to overtake the United States as the highest-earning esports country in 2019 and the rapid growth of the industry as a whole, the Chinese government has decided to pay even more attention to esports. 

Early this year it officially recognised and adopted 13 new occupations, of which esports professionals and operators were included. The Chinese government described esports professionals as those who perform in an esports event, compete in professional tournaments, or train with professional players.

As esports has become more mainstream, the government has empowered two institutions to regulate the industry in China. Their mandate is to fight fraudulent behaviour and create a healthy environment. They are the China Culture & Entertainment Industry Association and the General Administration of Sport

Together they conduct interviews with randomly selected professionals from all esports titles, including mobile games. Employing methods such as lie detector tests and such, they strive to prevent any unhealthy competitive behaviour and discover unethical practices like match-fixing. These institutions create the rules that govern the esports industry in China and enforce them. If done right, China could create the healthiest esports environment on the globe.
