Premier Li Keqiang praised the innovative approaches carried out by inspectors and urged efforts to tackle problems hindering policy implementation, after hearing a report on the sixth nationwide inspection at the State Council's executive meeting on Oct 23.

More than two-thirds of inspectors made unannounced visits during the State Council's sixth national inspection, which helped them uncover truths and reduce burdens on local authorities, Premier Li said.

Premier Li asked for more efforts to tackle problems hindering policy implementation revealed in the inspection.

Tasks of solving those problems should be assigned to local governments and departments, and the process of dealing with key issues should be supervised, he said.

The Premier said irregular behaviors that have disrupted government practices to reduce taxes and fees and arbitrary charges on enterprises must be fixed.

Tax and fee reductions are crucial measures of the proactive fiscal policy and play an important role in invigorating the market, he added.

He also urged efforts to tackle problems hindering policy implementation in stabilizing employment, connecting college recruiting systems, and improving weak links, to lay a solid foundation for stable employment in the next year.

Regarding problems hindering the delivery of policies, including officials' dereliction of duty, the Premier said that if these problems were not tackled as soon as possible, the development of the economy and society will be stunted.

The use of special bonds was one of the key areas inspected, and problems such as slow expenditure and insufficient project reserves were found in some regions.

Premier Li asked for efforts to better prepare project reserves and for more preparation work to expand effective investment, strengthen areas of weakness, and increase domestic demand.

He stressed that through the inspections, problems revealed must be solved, and those who don't take corresponding measures will be punished or exposed to public.
