This week, Premier Li Keqiang visited the free trade zone in Dalian, Liaoning province.
Since being established this year, the Dalian FTZ has accommodated 4,023 more enterprises, and foreign investments there increased $1.6 billion.
At the comprehensive service center in the FTZ, Premier Li said that foreign and domestic investors must be treated the same, with equally convenient business procedures.
For both domestic and foreign enterprises, the zone should combine registration service windows into one place, he said.
The goal of setting up FTZs is institutional innovation for China’s reform and opening-up. Liaoning should grasp the opportunities and attract investment and more talent to gain momentum for a new round of reform, the Premier said.
