Premier urges accountability of disordered acts

Inaction and disordered acts revealed in the fifth inspection will be made public and those responsible held accountable, Premier Li Keqiang said at the State Council executive meeting on Nov 2.

China climbed 32 spots in the global business environment ranking, according to a recent report released by the World Bank. It also spoke highly of the number of reforms China has implemented in the past year, which ranked first in the East Asia Pacific region.

China’s business environment has been continuously improved after years of efforts. However, the problems discovered by the inspection revealed tremendous room for improvement, the Premier said, adding that it is necessary to make unremitting efforts to reach the international advanced level and meet the demands of public and enterprises.

“The business environment should be further optimized with achievements made,” Premier Li said.

“We must stick to the reform of streamlining administration, delegating power, strengthening regulation and improving services, while handling the relationship between government and market, and spurring market vitality and confidence,” he said.

The fifth inspection was fruitful, and was made from July to September, with 39 working groups sent out across the whole nation and departments of the State Council.

Premier Li said the purpose of the inspection is to promote rectification, and all departments must carefully sort out the results and lead the rectification.

He also urged that all departments should establish a ledger for problems and make rectifications within a time limit.

Suggestions put forward in the inspection should be carefully studied, with relevant policies introduced in time and related systems improved. Good practices, such as promoting development, advancing innovation in reform and opening-up and improving people’s livelihoods, should be praised and promoted, the Premier added.

“We should make full use of the results of the inspection to encourage all departments to take their responsibilities, and implement policies effectively,” he said.
