Beijing municipality is to introduce two programmes of administrative reform in order to become a 'service-oriented' government, South China Morning Post said. The first was a trial separation of the Communist Party from the city administration in Haidian district, in the northwest of the city, similar to that pioneered last year in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.
The second programme is to make the city more attractive to investors by simplifying procedures and cutting the amount of paperwork involved in applying for permits, getting land and paying taxes by setting up a one-stop shop process in which businesses only have to deal with one agency rather than more than a dozen. As part of this reform, the city will scrap 40 per cent of its current 170 citywide public fees.
