  The general idea is to "stimulate vitality" as the main line

  The general idea of ​​the "Implementation Plan" is to "stimulate vitality" as the main line, start the business environment 5.0 reform, further streamline administration and delegate power, combine decentralization and management, optimize services, and ease the burden of innovation and development of enterprises.

  According to the main goals, by the end of 2022, Guangzhou will make breakthroughs in various reform issues, complete the formulation and introduction of relevant reform policies, basically establish a management system that meets the requirements of the pilot, build a more efficient enterprise life cycle service system, and create a more Attractive investment and trade environment, and business environment ranks among the top in the country.

By the end of 2025, Guangzhou will be built into a market-oriented, law-based and internationalized city with a first-class business environment, and the international competitiveness of business environment will be at the forefront of the world. , to form replicable and popularized experience and achievements, and to create a "source" and "experimental field" for optimizing the business environment nationwide.

  10 aspects put forward 40 key reform tasks and 223 implementation measures

  The "Implementation Plan" aims to further remove unreasonable restrictions such as regional segmentation and local protection, improve a more open, transparent, standardized and efficient access and exit mechanism for market entities, continue to improve the convenience of investment and construction, better support the innovative development of market entities, and continue to improve The level of cross-border trade facilitation, optimizing the management of foreign investment and international talent services, maintaining a fair competition order, further strengthening and innovating supervision, legally protecting the property rights and legitimate rights and interests of various market entities, and optimizing regular enterprise-related services are proposed 40 223 key reform tasks, 223 implementation measures, and 76 characteristic measures.

  According to the relevant person in charge of the Guangzhou Development and Reform Commission, the biggest feature of the business environment 5.0 reform is the three-dimensional and comprehensive promotion of reform.

  The person in charge said that previously, Guangzhou had implemented the business environment 1.0 to 4.0 reforms iteratively. The 1.0 reform focused on "simplifying administration and delegating powers" in the field of administrative approval, the 2.0 reform aimed at key areas and promoted "indicators", and the 3.0 reform focused on implementing cross-departmental "administrative approval". Process reengineering", the 4.0 reform has improved the level of government management services in an all-round way with "embroidery kung fu". So far, the four beams and eight pillars that government departments can build have been relatively complete, and even reached the "embroidery" stage.

  Therefore, compared with the previous reforms that focused on government departments and were relatively "flat", this reform can be described as moving from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, with a wider coverage, and stimulates the vitality and creativity of market entities and society by means of interim and post-event supervision.

For example, in terms of supporting the innovation and development of market players, focusing on the intelligent networked vehicle industry, it is proposed to pilot high-precision maps for the use of intelligent networked vehicles under the premise of ensuring safety.

In limited road sections, entities with corresponding qualifications are allowed to collect and produce ICV map data without involving national security, and trial the use of maps for ICVs after map review.

After the reform, the map supervision mechanism will be improved simultaneously, and supervision will be further strengthened.

  Of course, such changes also put forward higher requirements for supervision.

For example, the "Implementation Plan" proposes to allow the issuance of food business licenses to new business formats such as automatic food production and sales equipment, unmanned sales stores, and other automated and unmanned new business formats. Business connection and information sharing between approval and daily supervision, supervise operators to perform their statutory obligations, accept consumer complaints and reports, investigate and deal with violations of laws and regulations in accordance with the law, and prevent food safety risks.

  Draw the master blueprint, road map, and task book "three maps"

  According to reports, the biggest feature of this reform is the drawing of "three pictures".

The first is to further deepen and expand the 10 key tasks deployed by the state, and formulate an implementation plan as the "general blueprint" for promoting innovation pilots and 5.0 reforms; the second is to focus on the 101 reform items required by the state. The measures serve as a "roadmap" for solidly promoting reform; the third is to rely on the Guangzhou Development Zone to study and propose characteristic reform measures, as a "mission book" to promote innovation pilots in a leading position and at the forefront of the country.

  It is reported that the "Implementation Plan" will implement a package of innovative reforms that break through the current regulations or make up for the gaps in the current policies, put forward 40 key reform tasks, focus on the system integration of reforms, and combine the industrial layout and development priorities of Guangzhou. The task of business environment reform should be integrated, planned, promoted and implemented systematically.

  Due to the implementation of the national innovation pilot task, the "List of Implementation Measures" for the 5.0 reform has formulated 223 measures, and the first is to "prescribe actions" and strive to be at the forefront of the country.

For example, in terms of continuously improving the convenience of investment and construction, it has put forward detailed measures such as the reform of the "land use list system" for social investment projects, the integration of surveying, mapping and measurement items in stages, and the optimization of joint project acceptance methods, etc., to promote Guangzhou to continue to deepen the national industrial reform pilot, maintain Reform lead.

The second is the "optional action" to strive to form the Guangzhou experience.

For example, give full play to the advantages of Guangzhou as the only "experimental field" for comprehensive intellectual property reform in the country, and propose a series of innovative measures such as building a Guangzhou intellectual property trading center and promoting the establishment of overseas intellectual property rights protection cooperation agencies; focusing on Guangzhou to build a digital economy innovation-leading city, It is proposed to build Guangzhou Nansha (Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao) data element cooperation pilot zone, carry out pilot projects for the development and utilization of public data resources and other innovative measures to cultivate the data element market.

The third is to innovate supervision to ensure that the bottom line of reform risks is maintained.

In accordance with the state's requirements for coordinating development and safety, we will specifically study and propose specific regulatory measures for the implementation of reform issues, strive to consolidate regulatory responsibilities, improve and refine regulatory requirements, and form a pragmatic and effective regulatory rules system.

  In addition, relying on the research of Guangzhou Development Zone to propose characteristic reform measures, as a "mission book" to promote innovation pilots in a leading position and at the forefront of the country.

The "List of Featured Measures" proposes the first batch of 76 original and differentiated "featured reform measures" to explore more useful experience for innovative pilot work, and propose five focuses, including focusing on "small and medium-sized enterprises can do great things", and stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship of small and medium-sized enterprises. Power; focus on creating an "international talent free port" and build a talent highland in the Greater Bay Area; focus on the needs of market players to improve the convenience of enterprises; focus on the exploration of new regulatory mechanisms to achieve "no disturbance" and "ubiquitous" supervision; focus The convergence of international rules will improve the international level of the business environment.
