The State Council issued a circular on July 4 to approve a plan to boost the Guangdong province’s comprehensive innovation reform trial.
New development concepts titled innovation, coordination, environmental friendly, open-up and sharing should be followed to carry out the State Council’s plan, the reply circular said.
It urged Guangdong province to focus on deepening the innovation cooperation with the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions. It also asked it to depend on the Pearl River Delta region, supported by a talents-driven strategy through open cooperation to promote its healthy economic and social development.
Local government should play a leading role in implementing the plan, improving the collaboration mechanism and creating detailed innovation reform plans, according to the circular.
It also asked the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Technology to timely coordinate and help solve new problems during the implementation process, as well as to promote strong, featured and influential big reform measures, and report major issues to the State Council.
Related departments should also strengthen the link and coordination with the Guangdong province, and guarantee implementation of the details, the circular said.
