As an important part of the supply-side structural reform, streamlining administrative functions has been a priority of the State Council executive meeting presided by Premier Li Keqiang for the last five years.

According to the Premier, administrative reform and transformation of government functions are key to improving the socialist market economy and governing capacity.

Over the past four years, State Council departments cut or delegated more than 40 percent of approval items and slashed 2 trillion yuan in costs for enterprises between 2013 and 2016.

In addition to increased public satisfaction with the administrative changes, the government’s determination to cut red tape is reflected in Premier Li’s statements in the past several years.

The government should speed up transformation and strike a good balance between administration and the market, allowing the market to play a decisive role in the distribution of resources.
