The State Council Institutional Reform Plan, as adopted in March this year during the first session of the 13th National People’s Congress, saw the various departments constituting the State Council (with the exception of the General Office of the State Council) re-organised into 26 ministries and commissions. At the same time, a number of the government agencies reporting directly to the State Council also underwent a number of changes.

In one of the most significant changes, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce was abolished, with its business registration responsibilities transferred to the newly-established State Administration for Market Regulation. In another major development, responsibility for entry/exit inspections and all quarantine procedures (together with the relevant staff) were transferred to the General Administration of Customs.
