More efforts will go to protecting intellectual property rights, and a system to ensure research findings are commercialized will be explored.

The government will simplify procedures of work permit procedures for high-caliber foreign workers. Foreign students in China who start businesses can apply for residential permit with their diplomas.

A long-term system for military and civilian integration will be introduced to accelerate the application of scientific military research findings in civilian fields.

The measures will first be implemented in China’s eight innovation pilot zones and later be expanded nationwide.

Over the past five years, China has made big strides encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship.

Through a simpler approval process, lower corporate fees and technology-based services, the government is changing its functions to let the market play a larger role in the economy.

In the first seven months of this year, newly registered foreign-funded companies rose 12 percent year on year to 17,703, as simpler administrative procedures and lower entry barriers attracted businesses.

A report released by the World Bank said China’s ranking for ease of doing business rose eight spots every year from 2013 to 2016.
