A system of incentives and penalties should be established to stimulate the promotion of scientific administration, Premier Li Keqiang said at the State Council executive meeting on Jan 6.
The State Council decided to improve the system of incentives and accountability. “Not only should the results from different regions and departments be noted; nonfeasance during the implementation of policies should also draw attention,” the Premier said.
A supervision report was released at the meeting, announcing that over 900 leaders were held accountable through dismissals, demotions, and recording demerits. Meanwhile, regions with fruitful results in policy implementation in the past year are free of supervision in 2016. These regions can also receive incentives.
“We promote mass entrepreneurship and innovation to stimulate social vitality. Streamlining administration and delegating power aim to stimulate market vitality. Supervision is for stimulating scientific development,” the Premier said.
On Jan 5 - one day ahead of the executive meeting, Premier Li visited the Qingkong innovation maker space in Taiyuan, Shanxi province. He also experienced the solar car developed by an enterprise there.
“A large number of new-pattern products are made every day. The administration of functional departments should keep up with the times as long as these products are safe, environment-friendly, and welcomed by customers,” Premier Li said at the meeting.
