BEIJING, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday called for efforts to take the opportunity of implementing the regulation on improving the business environment to further create a market-oriented and law-based business environment.
More efforts should be made to solve problems of various market entities in investment and operation, according to a statement released after a State Council executive meeting chaired by Premier Li.
The State Council has made public a regulation on optimizing the business environment, which will become effective on Jan. 1, 2020.
Improving the business environment aims to unleash productivity and enhance competitiveness, and it is an effective measure to enhance market vitality, stabilize social expectations, cope with downward pressure and promote development and employment, according to the statement.

A slew of measures will be taken, including further streamlining the examination and approval process and lowering the threshold for market access.
There will also be measures to reduce business-related charges, promote fair competition among businesses under diverse ownership, and improve government services.
