Dongjin comments:

  1. The central government will further push the department to change their key work from the approval to the post administration;
  2. In practice, one extra undertaking letter needs to be signed during the application for company’s undertaking that after getting the business license, the company will apply for the special license on time and the company will not start any business subject to the special license before getting the special license.
  3. We understand it is the pilot action in the Pudong Area and if it is feasible and will expand to outside the Pudong New Area.
