Supports shall also be given to gradient transfer of processing trade to key pilot areas, border cities, border economic cooperation zones, and cross-border economic cooperation zones.
(20) Build a new processing trade management system. Measures shall be taken to enhance supervision through entire processing trade process, improve inspection on the operating states and production capacities of processing enterprises, and supervise processing enterprises’ performance of social responsibility, such as safe production, energy efficient production and environmental protection. A network covering commerce agencies, the customs, quality inspection agencies, tax agencies, foreign exchange administrations, and processing trade enterprises shall be built to realize active and efficient interaction. Besides, on the premise of ensuring effective risk control and revenue collection, a more mature deposit account system shall be established. At last, a scientific and reasonable processing trade transformation and upgrading evaluation system is also required.
(21) Optimize the supervision mode. To realize more efficient and convenient clearance, it’s needed to accelerate such reforms as integrated regional clearance and paperless clearance. As for processing trade supervision, firstly, the current supervision mode shall be improved to gradually realize supervision on each enterprise. Secondly, qualified enterprises with excellent credit and transparent information may be allowed to develop their own unit processing consumption standards. Thirdly, the current outbound processing supervision system shall also be improved.
(23) Accelerate the integrated optimization of SCSZs. SCSZs shall be encouraged to play a better role in integrating resources from domestic and foreign markets, driving the economic development of surrounding areas, and promoting the upgrading of such sectors as advanced manufacturing, production-based service, and technology-based service. Trial selective customs tariff policies aiming at domestically sold goods may be implemented at SCSZs in pilot free trade zones, and the application of such policies may be expanded according to previous summaries and evaluations. Bonded processing, logistics and services shall be encouraged in SCSZs, diversifying the types of businesses.
