XIAMEN, Chinese Vice Premier Han Zheng has stressed the need for wide-ranging reform of the country's construction project approval system.
Han, who is a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, the apex organ of the ruling party, made the remarks at a symposium on pilot reform for construction project approval held in Xiamen, in eastern China's Fujian Province, on Monday.
Han said the construction project approval system needed to be thoroughly reformed, with success measured by the experience of market entities and the public.
"The pilot programme for approval system reform should focus on key links, outstanding problems, and the procedures, information-sharing, mechanism and regulation methods for construction project approval should be unified," the vice premier said.
He ordered all government departments to jointly support and push forward the reform so it would be completed on time.
Han made a trip to Xiamen on June 3 and 4 to inspect local administrative services and the business environment. He visited the city's administrative service centre, an aircraft engineering company and a harbour in the Xiamen Area of China (Fujian) Pilot Free Trade Zone. -- NNN-XINHUA
