Government departments at all levels need to focus on private enterprises’ long-standing problems. They will need to press ahead with reforms to streamline administration, delegate power and improve government services. They will also need to optimize the business environment, reduce institutional transaction costs and protect property and intellectual property rights and fair competition. In addition to offering precise and effective macroeconomic policies, it is even more important to follow the principle of competitive neutrality and ownership neutrality and further reform state-owned enterprises to create a suitable institutional mechanism and legal environment for entrepreneurial success.
Governments at all levels should effectively communicate with private enterprises by responding to their concerns and answering their questions promptly and directly. Reassurance is necessary, but in the future, we hope that private companies will be able to develop safely without it.
