Hunan Issues Criteria for One Step Approval Process
On July 21, a press conference on the Criteria of Hunan’s One Step Approval Process was held in Changsha.
Hunan Provincial Government published 15 criteria for its One Step Approval Process on July 21. These local standards were formulated based on reform experience and measures taken since March 2019. It is hoped that through streamlining administrative procedures, the business environment will be improved, and enterprises and residents will be more satisfied.
The Hunan Provincial Government initiated the reform of One Step Approval Process in March 2019, covering a total of 227 administrative matters. By the end of this June, more than 405 million items of administrative approval were handled.
Reform removes more than 70% of approval procedures, cuts 60% of application documents, and reduces processing time by 80%. In a third-party evaluation of the Hunan business environment, 99.7% residents were satisfied with the reform which offered them more efficient and convenient governmental services.
Xiang Shicong, member of the CPC Leadership Group of the General Office of the Hunan Provincial People’s Government and director of the Hunan Provincial Administrative Management Service Bureau, stated that the criteria will help improve the reform with specific rules, and turn its strength into more effective governance.
