TIANJIN, China, Oct. 16, 2019 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/– In Tianjin Binhai New Area, how long will it take to finish the whole process from bidding for land use rights to obtaining a project planning permit and then securing a construction permit to start construction?
“I didn’t expect it to be finished in just 35 working days,” one applicant said at the administrative service hall of Binhai New Area. The evaluation and approval process is so efficient and fast is because that the administrative service office, after learning about the difficulties facing the enterprises, provides whole-process supporting services, and takes many measures to streamline the process. It also seeks to greatly reduce the evaluation and approval time and improve efficiency by taking parallel steps.
The case also involves other reform efforts to reduce application items and materials, links, licenses and time. For example, land transaction confirmations have been used as approval reference instead of land approval procedures. Meanwhile, qualified enterprises can get construction project planning permission via the commitment evaluation and approval mechanism.
In early 2019, Binhai New Area’s administrative service office was officially opened, covering functions including administrative approval and business environment improvement. It is designed to help administrative services transition from the previous standardized evaluation and approval manners to more convenient, user-friendly and quality services for the general public and enterprises.
At the beginning of this year, Tianjin delegated an unprecedented total of 597 items of municipal power to Binhai New Area. As the leading engine of the municipality’s economic development, Binhai New Area has dealt with issues emerging from the development of new technologies, new industries, new business forms, and new modes by combining with local conditions and seeking practical and tailor-made solutions. It has removed the last crucial hurdle in power delegation and realized door-to-door administrative services.
