Luo Jianzhong, Director of Nansha’s Governmental Affairs Management Office, introduced how the Nansha FTZ has pushed forward 367 new policies thus far, 184 among which were regarding government services.
“For example, applicants for business registration no longer need to wait a long time for approval from different departments, and can obtain their business licenses in just one working day,” said Luo Jianzhong, “we also allow cross-border and online applications so that people don’t have to be here in person.”
During the press conference, 10 new measures were also announced to facilitate services, including business registration, taxation, administrative approval, supervision, online platforms and WeChat application.
Pan Yuzhang said based on feedback from enterprises, Nansha would further optimize the administrative approval system so that enterprises from different sectors could enter the market as fast as possible.
“Targeting commercial construction projects, we separate the approval application into three processes: planning permit, construction permit and final inspection,” said Pan Yuzhang, “it’s expected to shorten the application period from 88 working days to just 25-45 working days.”
