The State Council released a circular on Sept 19 to promote Beijing and Shanghai’s experience of optimizing the business environment across the country.
Their experience falls under seven categories: starting a business, getting planning permission, acquiring electricity, property registration, paying taxes, cross-border trade, and contract enforcement.
Among them, 13 items - including allowing enterprises to start businesses online, promoting electronic business licenses, handling property registration, trading and paying taxes through one window, and promoting the single window for international trade - will be replicated nationwide, the circular said.
Twenty-three measures will be shared across the country, including providing electronic files to enterprises, promoting electronic project bidding, interconnecting real estate registration information and cadastral management information, implementing online tax declaration, and carrying out electronic customs clearance, according to the circular.
