As Premier Li Keqiang inspected the citizens’ service center in Shiyan city of Hubei province on May 23, he said affairs halls and service centers have been set up in every region of China, and their functions should be performed with one-stop approval procedure processed at one service window. Further procedures for citizens and enterprises should be prohibited, the Premier emphasized.
Shiyan city has implemented power list, responsibility list, negative list and charge list, making sure that no other approval procedures or fees arise beyond the range of the lists.
On learning this, the Premier said that government departments that work at the service center should substantially transform their functions, providing more convenience for residents and enterprises.
“Streamlining administration and delegating power to lower-level governments is about transferring certain government profits to the market,” the Premier said.
