Wang Jianjun, a senior official in Northwest China's Qinghai province, has been appointed acting governor of the province, replacing Hao Peng who became the top official at the nation's top regulatory body for State-owned enterprises this month.

The appointment was made at a meeting of the Standing Committee of the 12th Provincial People's Congress on Tuesday, according to Qinghai News Network.

Wang, 58, a native of Yunxian county in Hubei province, began his career as a teacher at No 10 Middle School in Xining, capital of Qinghai, in September 1981. He spent most of his career with the Qinghai government.

In October 1982, Wang took up a secretary post at the policy research department with the Xining city government and about two years later served for the provincial organization department. He was deputy head of the department from 1995 to 2004.

He served as deputy secretary-general and secretary-general of the provincial government from 2004 to 2007 before he became the Party chief of Xining in 2007.

He has been deputy Party chief of Qinghai since 2010.

Hao was governor of Qinghai from 2013 until he was appointed Party chief of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, a move announced a week ago.

He spent 10 years in the Tibet autonomous region and held posts such as vice-chairman and deputy Party chief of the autonomous region.
