Taking the scale of the enterprise, operating income, number of employees, etc. as the main indicators, there are very few indicators about the "credit" itself

  Some industry associations are so "credit rating" that SMEs are "very hurt"

  The representative committee suggested that a major inspection should be carried out to standardize such ratings and create a market environment for fair competition.

  This newspaper, Beijing, March 10 (Reporter Yang Zhaokui, Beimengyuan) "At present, in the field of professional services, some industry associations have 'credit ratings'. The inclination to large enterprises has limited the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, which makes some small and medium-sized enterprises 'very hurt'." Every year in the National People's Congress, small and medium-sized enterprises are the focus of the delegates.

This year's National People's Congress, Fan Yun, Vice Chairman of Shanghai Federation of Industry and Commerce, spoke out for the unfair treatment of small and medium-sized enterprises.

  Representative Fan Yun pointed out that some industry associations are engaged in "credit rating" in name, but in fact, the ratings are mainly based on the business scale, operating income, number of employees, etc. Some enterprises rated at the highest level will also be dishonest and illegal.

  "If this 'credit rating' is linked to the service quality and untrustworthiness of the enterprise, it is fine, but some of the current credit rating assessments are disguised as administrative licenses, which take up the space for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises. It doesn't match." Representative Fan Yun further pointed out.

  Representative Fan Yun said, for example, an association stipulates that a rating should be conducted once a year, in which the association is responsible for the A-level credit rating, and the provincial association is responsible for the B-level credit rating. It is divided into "national practice" and "provincial practice".

If the member units do not participate in the rating, it will be difficult for the business to proceed normally.

What is particularly noteworthy is that in some bidding processes, some tenderers use the so-called "credit rating" results as the basis for bid evaluation, resulting in limited participation of small and medium-sized enterprises in bidding.

  "The state advocates 'specialization and specialization' to support small and medium-sized enterprises with different specialties and different characteristics. If the scale of the enterprise is used as an indicator and takes a large weight to carry out a 'credit rating', it is against the principle of fair competition." Shanxi Li Zhiqiang, a first-level inspector of the Provincial Market Supervision Bureau, said.

  This year's government work report proposes to further promote the implementation of fair competition policies, strengthen anti-monopoly and anti-unfair competition, and maintain a fair and orderly market environment.

The report also proposes to continue to promote the reform of "decentralization, regulation and service" around creating a market-oriented, law-based, international business environment, and to simultaneously implement regulatory responsibilities and measures for the cancellation and decentralization of approval items.

  "The fair competition review system should be fully implemented, and discriminatory qualification requirements and evaluation standards that restrict SMEs from participating in government procurement, bidding and other administrative actions based on ownership form, enterprise scale, operating income, etc., must be resolutely corrected to effectively reduce SMEs. Market entry barriers and institutional costs," said Sima Hong, executive vice chairman of the Beijing Association for Science and Technology.

  Representative Fan Yun suggested that the national social organization management department should carry out a nationwide inspection of industry associations in the field of professional services, and resolutely regulate the rating behavior.

At the same time, the practice of using scale, number of people, income, etc. as the main indicators of "credit rating" should be changed, and enterprises' untrustworthiness and service quality should be used as the main indicators, so as to create a fair competition environment for small and medium-sized enterprises.
