A new plan for business environment reform was released by Guangzhou's Huangpu district at a news conference on June 1, marking the fifth time that the district has renewed its measures to improve its business environment since 2018.
With the theme of "serving market entities," the new plan puts forward 125 specific reform tasks in 23 areas around the six aspects of index improvement, market environment, international environment, rule of law, government services, as well as "hard" environment.
To better serve market entities, the district will continue to work hard to facilitate the settlement of key projects and the development of key industries. In addition, it will optimize the distribution and supply of factors like capital, intellectual property, technology, and talents to further promote the innovation, as well as entrepreneurship of small and medium-sized enterprises.
The district will also provide more targeted and proactive services for enterprises to help them deal with key matters. For example, it will formulate guidelines for the demonstration operation of intelligent connected vehicles to reduce the proportion of sampling inspections, as well as to promote mutual recognition of test license plates.
According to the new plan, Huangpu will strengthen its efforts to improve the "hard" environment, such as public resource allocation and industrial infrastructure. In the plan, it provided solutions to problems that enterprises are encountering most, spanning employment, residence, transportation, and education of talented children.
The plan also includes measures to improve the relationship between the government and enterprises. The government of Huangpu district plans to establish a regular consultation mechanism and a communication service center for enterprises to develop closer connections with them, as well as to better meet their needs.
Huangpu has made notable progress since launching its business environment reform plans. Its experiences in business environment innovation have been widely spread and Guangzhou Development District has been rated first among the national economic development zones in terms of business environment convenience for three consecutive years.
Huangpu district holds a news conference to launch the 5.0 version of its business environment reform plan.
