|The government will bring forward the revision of a key investment approval catalog Adidas Superstar 2 Pas Cher , a move that will lower barriers to corporate investment, a senior official said on Thursday.
Li Pumin, secretary-general of the National Development and Reform Commission, the top economic planner, told reporters that the document - which specifies what kind of investment projects require government approval - was originally intended to be completed in 2015.
Now Adidas Superstar W Pas Cher , it will be finished this year.
Officials and analysts said the move is part of a broad campaign under Premier Li Keqiang to streamline administrative approval procedures and give the market more autonomy.
The current investment approval catalog was released last December by the State Council, the cabinet. The catalog covers only 13 sectors, but these affect virtually every industry from agriculture to energy, information technology, transportation and foreign investment.
The catalog changed the status of 10 items that previously required approval to ones that merely require notification Adidas Superstar Rose Pas Cher , delegated 20 items to lower authorities and transferred 10 to other regulators.
Now, the NDRC has promised to ease more.
"Revision work started in May, and we aim to submit our proposal to the State Council around September," said Huang Min, director of the fixed-asset investment department of the NDRC.
For years Adidas Superstar Rouge Pas Cher , onerous requirements for project approvals have been a major problem for China's entrepreneurs, who complain that the process has hindered and even derailed their plans.
Li Shufu, chairman of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co Ltd, in 2010 bought Volvo Car from Ford Motor Co. But he had to wait nearly three years before Liu Tienan, then vice-chairman of the NDRC Adidas Superstar Bleu Pas Cher , approved his request to launch joint ventures with Volvo in China, domestic media have reported.
Last year, Liu was investigated for taking bribes. The high-profile Liu case rocked the NDRC and prompted it to reflect on rampant rent-seeking associated with the investment approval system.
Still, China's investment approval system remains extremely complicated.
Kuang Xianming, director of the Research Center for Economy at the China Institute for Reform and Development Adidas Superstar Argent Pas Cher , said the State doesn't make a clear distinction between "approval" and "notification", which has hindered many investments.
So although the NDRC has said that more than 80 percent of investments only require notification, many enterprises find the real approval process is quite different, he said.
Huang said the principle underlying the revision is to turn more items requiring approval into those only requiring notification or to delegate more items to lower authorities.
The NDRC will focus on externalities, such as the economic security implications of a specific investment Adidas Superstar Or Pas Cher , or the environmental and resource impact of an investment project.
It will leave internal issues such as profitability, funding sources and the choice of technology up to the enterprises.
Kuang said the best alternative is to replace both approval and notification with a "negative list", which means that enterprises may invest in any field that's not on such a list. The requirement for notification could be maintained but only as a formality after projects have started.
The government should also clear non-administrative approval items that are established by regulators or industrial associations beyond the scope of the laws. These items are more vague and subject to discretion than administrative approvals, Kuang said.
A nature conservation organization said Thursday that it disagrees with the content of a popular reality TV show in China featuring interactions between celebrities and animals, after its ambassador took part in the show.
"WWF does not participate in Wonderful Friends Adidas Superstar Blanche Pas Cher , nor does it agree with its content, which involves animal performances," said a press release sent by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to the Global Times via e-mail on Thursday.
Wonderful Friends, a TV show jointly produced by the Guangzhou-based Chimelong Safari Park and Hunan TV, has come under fire from animal right activists since it began airing on January 24.
The six celebrities on the show - including pop singer Li Yuchun Adidas Superstar Noir et Blanche Pas Cher , who is also a WWf ambassador - are required to accomplish a mission together with animals in each episode, including training elephants to do a headstand or taking chimpanzees clothes shopping.
Neither the show nor the zoo could be reached as of press time.
The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) also criticized the show on March 17 for dressing up chimpanzees and orangutans in human clothes and placing animals in stressful and harmful situations in order to create "entertaining" story lines.
It particularly criticized Li for "helping to popularize these misleading and inhuman practices." It also requested the immediate discontinuation of the program and similar shows, and insisted that all animals held in captivity be provided with the highest level of care and husbandry.
Yan Dianya, one of the show's producers, explained previously that the show has not violated China's animal protection law or coerced animals into unnatural behavior Adidas Superstar Blanche et Noir Pas Cher , reported the Beijing Youth Daily.
Yan also said that the purpose of the show is to appeal to the public to protect animals, and that the controversy does not change this good intention.
"As an ambassador of WWF, Li participated in the show to observe how animals live. I think her endeavor and performance should remove all misunderstanding and disagreement by others," Yan added.
