Abstract: Corporate social responsibility (CSR, also called corporate conscience, corporate citizenship, social performance, orsustainable responsible business/ Responsible Business)[1] is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model. CSR policy functions as a built-in, self-regulating mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms. In some models, a firm's implementation of CSR goes beyond compliance and engages in "actions that appear to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law."[2][3]CSR is a process with the aim to embrace responsibility for the company's actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere who may also be considered as stakeholders

Abstract: Social entrepreneurship is highlighted as a result of general entrepreneurship development because the traditional entrepreneurial factors are accomplished with the social aspects of common good. Entrepreneur's responsibility in choosing the main business activity within an industry increases if the way he conducts his activities is considered. Institutional support for social entrepreneurship is achieved by generating many business activities in order to fulfil different kinds of social needs. Social entrepreneurship is possible if both entrepreneur’s initiative and institutional support for small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are included in performing for traditionally non-profit activities. Allowing private initiative to fulfil the real needs of different users in social, educational, cultural and other non-profit fields is a good way to support SMEs. However, the institutional control should still remain in place in order to protect the minimum performing standards.The development of social entrepreneurship in transition countries is important for general economic development, but also for the supporting values of ethics in business activities.

Now family enterprise has gradually become a part of China economy booming. The government should strengthen the guidance to family enterprise to promote its development.
