XI’AN — Vice-Premier Han Zheng has called on officials in Northwest China’s Shaanxi province to break new ground in reform and development.
Han, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks during a three-day inspection tour to Shaanxi from April 14 to 16.
Han visited local companies, where he asked questions about tax cuts, industry development and tech innovation.
At a local tax bureau in Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi, Han stressed the implementation of tax and fee cuts to reduce the corporate burden.
“Authorities should listen to the suggestions and demand by companies to tackle the issues in reforms, and gauge the effectiveness of the reforms based on the evaluation by these market entities,” Han said.
While inspecting the local forestry industry, Han stressed that forestry management should be strengthened while law enforcement should be enhanced.
Han also stressed that Shaanxi province should continue to push forward construction under the Belt and Road Initiative.
