Dongjin comments:

1.     This regulation was issued by State Council and its implementation should be subject to the local regulation.

2.     For some industries (e.g. the certifying, the talent intermediary and etc.), the special license is required before the approval of Ministry of Commerce and the foreign investor should still apply for it at first.
