On the 22nd, the negative list of Market access (2019 version) was released. The list has shrunk in length, richer in content and better in system. This "slimming down and improving quality" version of the list is a big move for China to open wider to the outside world, and it is also the latest footnote to China's commitment to open wider to the outside world.
Compared with the 2018 version, the latest list included a total of 131 items in the prohibited and licensed categories, a reduction of 20 items, or a reduction of 13 per cent. This means that all kinds of market players can fight in the broader market world.
The value of the latest list lies not only in "getting shorter and shorter", but also in the further optimization of the management system. For example, the competent authorities of each measure listed in the list, relying on the national integrated online government service platform, gave each item a unique identification code, laying the foundation for the implementation of the list of items "at a glance and through the Internet."
In particular, it is worth mentioning that the list comprehensively clears up other negative lists formulated in violation of regulations, cancels the 23 negative lists of market access categories compiled and published by various regions, and effectively puts an end to "negative lists flying all over the place." Enhance the seriousness, authority and unity of the list.
It can be said that this list not only reflects the Chinese government's determination to continue to "release", but also contains the "tube" of ingenuity and "obedience" ability.
At present, the global economy is shrouded in "clouds", and protectionism and unilateralism are obviously on the rise. Where there is a market, where the open mind is wider, where the service is more appropriate, there is opportunity, vitality, and hope.
From the formal and full implementation of the negative list system of market access in 2018, to the first annual revision, China has continued to make efforts in the direction of stimulating market vitality and working hand in hand with the world, and the road to opening up in China is getting wider and wider. The prospect of high-quality development of China's economy is becoming brighter and brighter.
