Guide to innovate, reform in northeast

CHINA has issued guidelines to speed up innovation and reform in the country’s northeast to rejuvenate the rust belt region.

The central government decided to accelerate reforms in administration, state-owned enterprises and the private economy to give full play to the region’s vitality, according to a statement released by the State Council yesterday.

The provinces of Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang in the northeast were among the first areas in China to be industrialized. However, this once robust industrial base has been faced with a more acute slowdown than the rest of the country, trailing behind in GDP growth.

The northeast will pilot a negative list program for investment. The region also aims to set up at least one private bank before next June to encourage growth of the private economy.

The central government urged the three provinces to update their industries and issued a three-year action plan. It will offer fiscal support to develop emerging sectors, such as tourism, according to the document.
