China Daily | Updated:2017-02-15 07:31A gavel in a court. [Photo/IC]As early, the State Council, Chinas Cabinet, canceled 67 vocational certificates and approvals. However, the bureau of housing and urban-rural development in Haikou, South Chinas Hainan province, recently issued an official document requiring all local interior decorators to have two of the canceled certificates. Beijing Youth Daily comments:Does the local government of Haikou know they are acting against the executive order of the central government?
There are various laws regulating the market, and all the local authorities need to do is to enforce them so that those breaking the laws get their deserved punishments. There is no need for the local government to intervene with their own measures.
Worse, some journalists visited Haikou and found that it is very easy to obtain the required vocational certificates by paying a certain agency a “training fee”.
Further, the local “trade association” is also called the Haikou office for regulating the interior decoration industry. In other words, it is likely the “trade association” is the white glove of some local bureaucrats holding their hands out for illicit gains.
If this is the case there is an interest chain behind the officials of Haikou insisting workers obtain the abolished certificates. Just as Premier Li Keqiang once said, some local training agencies provided mandatory “services” to residents and enterprises and made profits in the process. That seriously curbed the market from becoming prosperous.
Such a phenomenon used to exist everywhere, and thats partly why the central leadership has vowed to push forward reform by simplifying administrative procedures. With the reform going on, the problem has been solved in many regions, but it proves deeply rooted in Haikou.
We hope the higher authorities can intervene by probing the situation in Haikou. They are acting not only against the executive order of the central government, but also against the law. It is also time to investigate and see whether the phenomenon exists in other regions, too, so that the reform can proceed smoothly.Related StoriesWhat is the procedure concerning the extension of a Foreign Expert CertificateForeign Expert Work Permit (Foreign Expert Certificate)Materials required concerning a foreign expert applying for a new Foreign Expert Certificate if he or she changes jobsInfineon chip receives safety certificateCartoonsWhat men loveAbes meet with TrumpAddicted to your mobile phone?Environmental pollutionChina football investment surges Trump-tanicMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsShould parents arrange dates for their children?What is going wrong with Chinese higher education?ColumnistsChina, EU and US should work togetherMade in USA is hypocritical political correctnessForumFeatured ContributorsChinas One Belt, One Road, a drive for Great Britains businesses?Xis Davos speech continuation of Chinas global commitmentChina Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersHow is General de Gaulle remembered in China?Why I cannot continue studying in ChinaBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
