Shang­hai un­veils poli­cies for fur­ther open­ing-up

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment of Shang­hai an­nounced 100 poli­cies to ad­dress the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s call for fur­ther open­ing-up, as the city seeks to speed up the pace of building an open, in­ter­na­tional eco­nomic sys­tem.

Shang­hai’s Party Sec­re­tary Li Qiang said at a pro­mo­tional meet­ing that Shang­hai is aim­ing to en­hance its role as an in­ter­na­tional fi­nan­cial cen­ter and im­prove its mod­ern ser­vice in­dus­try and ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing. The city is also ded­i­cated to pro­tect­ing in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights by co­or­di­nat­ing le­gal and ad­min­is­tra­tive rules, he said.

The poli­cies also re­flect the city’s am­bi­tion to build it­self into an im­port hub serv­ing the whole coun­try, and its de­ter­mi­na­tion to cre­ate a con­ve­nient in­ter­na­tional busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment, he added.

To im­ple­ment the poli­cies, Li stressed that gov­ern­ment de­part­ments should con­duct in-depth sur­veys and seek the true de­mand of com­pa­nies. He also called for clear task lists and timeta­bles. (Photo 3)
