Govt departments urged to expedite reforms, CNS says

The State Council asked all government departments to ensure that reform promises for 2013 are fulfilled as part of efforts to achieve more efficient, fair and sustainable economic and social development, China News Service reported Wednesday, citing deliberations at the cabinet’s regular meeting held the same day. The cabinet said several of these reforms have been launched, including measures on government structures, natural gas pricing and major illness insurance coverage, but the government must expedite the rollout of other programs, including improving the approval system in the government bureaucracy and encouraging private investors to set up banks, the report said.
