On the afternoon of November 1, Hunan Governor Mao Weiming shared a piece of good news with the participants at the executive meeting of the provincial government. The All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce announced the results of the 2021 “Business Environment Evaluation by Ten Thousand Private Enterprises”. Hunan Province ranked 8th nationwide, 2 places higher than last year. Changsha ranked 9th, 4 places higher than last year. Both took the lead in central China.

“This is a great encouragement and affirmation of what Hunan Province has been achieved.” Governor Mao pointed out that optimizing the business environment is always on the way. He asked all the departments at all levels to adhere to goal, problem, and result orientation; focus on public services, market entities, and tough tasks; and spare no efforts to create a first-class business environment.

Meanwhile, the meeting passed in principle the “Twenty Measures to Further Reforms to Streamline Administration and Delegate Power, and Boost the ‘Five-good’ Industrial Parks Construction”.
