The meeting pointed out that since the beginning of this year, due to multiple factors such as international transmission, the prices of some bulk commodities have continued to rise, and the prices of some varieties have reached new highs. We should attach great importance to the adverse effects brought about by rising commodity prices, implement the arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, focus on market changes in accordance with the requirements of precise regulation and control, give prominence to key comprehensive policies, ensure the supply of commodities, curb unreasonable price increases, and strive to prevent transmission to consumer prices. First, we should take more measures to strengthen the two-way adjustment of supply and demand. We will implement policies such as raising export tariffs on some steel products, implementing a provisional zero import tax rate on pig iron and scrap steel, and abolishing export tax rebates on some steel products to promote the increase of domestic market supply. Efforts should be made to adjust the structure and curb high energy consuming projects. Give full play to the advantages of abundant coal resources in China, urge key coal enterprises to increase production and supply on the premise of ensuring safety, increase the output of wind power, photovoltaic, hydropower and nuclear power, and ensure energy security during peak summer. Adhere to opening wider to the outside world, strengthen the adjustment of import and export of bulk commodities and reserves, promote customs clearance facilitation, make better use of two markets and two resources, and enhance the ability to guarantee supply and stabilize prices. Second, we must strengthen market supervision. Give full play to the role of trade associations and strengthen industry self-discipline. We will strengthen the linkage supervision of the spot market and take timely and targeted measures to investigate abnormal transactions and malicious speculation. Severely investigate and deal with behaviors such as reaching monopoly agreements, spreading false information, driving up prices, especially hoarding and hoarding, and publicly expose them. Third, we must maintain the stability of monetary policy and the basic stability of RMB exchange rate at a reasonable and balanced level, and reasonably guide market expectations. Help market players, especially small and micro enterprises and individual industrial and commercial households, cope with production and operation difficulties such as rising costs. We will implement the policy of tax reduction and exemption for small and micro enterprises and individual industrial and commercial households, and refund the incremental VAT allowance for advanced manufacturing enterprises in full on a monthly basis, and streamline the procedures for enjoying preferential tax and fee policies. Implement direct monetary policy tools, increase refinancing and rediscounting to support Inclusive Financing, implement policies such as financing guarantee, fee reduction and compensation for small and micro enterprises, and guide banks to expand credit loans.

 

The meeting pointed out that optimizing notarization service is an important measure to deepen the reform of "distribution service" and create a market-oriented and legalized international business environment, which is conducive to stimulating the vitality of market players and better facilitating enterprises and benefiting the people. First, it is necessary to streamline notarization certification materials, and generally implement the list system of certification materials and the one-time notification system before the end of the year. Any certification materials that can pass the personal valid license certificate or inter-departmental information sharing verification shall not be provided repeatedly by the parties concerned. Explore and implement the notification commitment system for notarization certification matters that are closely related to the production and life of enterprises and the masses and are frequently used. Second, we must improve notarization and convenience services. Promote more notarization matters to be handled by the whole province. High-frequency notarization services such as academic degree certificates and driver's licenses shall be handled online in the whole process, and "one network management" shall be implemented. Open a notarization "green channel" for small and medium-sized enterprises, and implement "one-to-one" services for expanding financing and capital turnover. Third, we must strengthen supervision. Remediation of notarization illegal fees and "difficult access, difficult things, poor attitude" and other issues, investigate and deal with notarization fraud according to law, punish illegal practice.
