 World Bank: six key factors for the success of Chinas business environment reform

What are the successful experiences of Chinas business environment? Six key factors are mentioned in the report - including high-level leaderships attention to the reform agenda, local policy experimentation, knowledge exchange at home and abroad, strong implementation of the reform agenda and accountability for results, active participation of the private sector, and widespread use of e-government services.

Ye Lin, director of the business environment law research center of Renmin University of China, believes that among the six key factors, top leaders attach great importance to the reform agenda, and a series of policy signals to optimize the business environment have been continuously released. The Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the optimization of business environment. We can see that we have a series of measures and arrangements. For example, the regulations on optimizing the business environment, which came into effect this year, and the implementation opinions on further optimizing the business environment and better serving the market players issued by the general office of the State Council recently. Whats more, we have broken down what we need to do in the process of optimizing the business environment to various government departments, so this is a very strong government push and reflects our strong leadership. He said.

Zhang Lianqi, member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese peoples Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), cited as an example that the one network and all in one for cross departmental and cross regional administrative examination and approval, which has been practiced in many regions of China, is a typical case of e-government services. Whether it is a registered company or applying for preferential policies, the widely used all in one network is a key measure to facilitate peoples affairs, which can realize less running on the road and more on the Internet. . It can be said that one of the outstanding features of our market oriented, rule of law and internationalized business environment is Internet plus government affairs and form a national network. For example, the itinerary cards and health codes that were widely used during the epidemic can reflect this.

From another point of view, Ren believes that big data, cloud computing, blockchain and other technologies are widely used in e-government services, which is also to remove the interference of human factors on the business environment at the technical level, so as to form a competitive neutral market environment.

Looking forward to the direction of optimizing the business environment in the next stage, the report proposes that China should continue to promote reform in various fields, including maintaining the momentum of reform beyond the assessment scope of the world banks business environment report.

This year and next year, and for some time to come, the work we have to do in optimizing the business environment is likely to be more arduous, he said. In my opinion, the optimization of the business environment is not a concept of short-term compliance, but a matter of overall deployment from a long-term and long-term perspective.

As an important leading department of business environment reform, the Ministry of Finance said on the 27th that it will continue to follow the arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, work with relevant departments and cities to benchmark the international first-class level, and continue to create a market-oriented, legalized and international business environment, so as to provide a strong guarantee for the six stability work and the implementation of the six guarantees task.
