Preparing Chengdu, China for a Business 5.0 Environment

The Chengdu Network Administration Office in China released Chengdu’s business environment 5.0 and the Ten Measures for Continuously Optimising and Improving Chengdu’s Business Environment (Ten Measures).

As a guide, the Ten Measures actively promotes usage scenarios by intensifying the application of government affairs data, electronic certificates, electronic seals, and electronic files, and upgrades and enables data to empower the development of a business environment and advantage more enterprises in various places.

Chengdu will also enhance cross-departmental, cross-field, and cross-level intercommunication by accelerating system connectivity and data exchange of public utility platforms at all levels.

Chengdu’s service quality and efficiency will be vastly improved. The local government will expand government service items such as enterprise registration, change, and other government service items.

In addition, the city will enable financing loans, social security employment and policy pushes for firms following the application to increase the ease of handling and approval efficiency.

The city is committed to consistently improving market player satisfaction and the effectiveness of investment and entrepreneurship and creating a highland for development and entrepreneurship.

Chengdu will develop a full-process online office for engineering construction project approval, promote the electronification of engineering construction project approval materials and confirmation results and automated certificates “one-time generation, unified circulation, conformity assessment and sharing” to maximise the quality and efficiency of engineering approval services. The new approach will reduce businesses’ resources and time to apply for construction permits.

According to the Chengdu Network Administration Office’s Business Environment Construction Division, the Ten Measures list the reform items of the national business environment innovation pilot reforms, combined with the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle, the Park City Demonstration Zone and the Chengdu Metropolitan Circle.

Chengdu will use the standardised address and registration model to make it easier for businesses to start. Furthermore, it will extend the reform of “one licence, multiple addresses and optimise market entities’ access and exit mechanisms. The information updates of enterprise branches and chain stores will be incorporated into the same city general office. A closure system will be established to facilitate market entity termination.

Simultaneously, the rule will implement one-stop joint services for enterprises and the public, such as water, electricity, and so on, as well as reform the “land use list system” for social investment projects in functional areas such as free trade pilot zones and industrial parks. The plan review is integrated with time management.

The city believes approval time can be successfully decreased by optimising the approval department’s internal approval process and enhancing the approval process’s oversight and notification mechanism, as well as the firms’ waiting time and handling costs.

Cleaning up and cancelling disparities in enterprise qualification acquisition, bidding, government procurement, and rights protection will be another focus of the law. Non-essential requirements such as excluding and restricting competition must be eliminated. A long-term screening process must be established to break down hidden barriers and unjustified thresholds.

Simultaneously, Chengdu will optimise regulatory resource allocation based on credit risks, promote credit classification and classification in critical areas such as food, engineering construction, auctioning, factory safety, firefighting, medical and health care, and ecological nature conservation, and integrate differentiated surveillance based on risk levels.

To reduce the impact on market players’ production and operation activities, the regulation will investigate the implementation of a list of items that will not be punished for the first violation, as well as a list of items that will not be subject to administrative compulsory measures in the field of market supervision.
