State Councilor Wang Yong urged industrial and business associations around China to advance further reform to detach from the government.
The reform aims to improve the relationship between government and society, transform government functions and stimulate market vitality, Wang said during a teleconference in Beijing on August 18.
He also said the core of the reform concerns the detachment of the administration from industrial and business associations in aspects such as institutions, functions, financial assets, personnel and foreign affairs.
“We will establish a comprehensive supervision system while promoting the reform. And we will also start the reform with pilot projects, and then take steady steps to spread it all over the country,” the State Councilor said.
