Zhuhai awarded the Hengqin New District Pipeline Management Project Hengqin's own stamping

Different from the Zhuhai High-tech Zone, although the high-tech zone also has the authority of the city-level economic management authority, it is mainly through the authorization of the municipal government, and the official seal of the high-tech zone approval must pass the relevant departments directly under the municipality. And through the Zhuhai City People's Congress legislation authorized to Hengqin New District, the official seal of the Hengqin New District approval will be provided by the Hengqin New Area itself, more direct and efficient. From this perspective, if the legislation is delegated to the Hengqin New District, it means that the scope of “decentralization” is wider than the high-tech zone.

The hat of the “Deputy Hall Level” of Hengqin New District is not virtual. For the first time, it will have a municipal-level administrative power that is deserved. A few days ago, the Zhuhai Municipal Government decided to grant the Hengqin New District Management Committee approval for investment management projects and other municipal-level administrative authority. Authoritative departments and experts believe that if the implementation of “legislative authorization” grants all municipal-level administrative authority to Hengqin New District, the management authority of Hengqin New District will be higher than that of the high-tech zone.

A few days ago, the Zhuhai Municipal Government officially decided that the Hengqin New District Management Committee should implement unified leadership and unified management of the economic and social affairs in the Hengqin New District, and exercise the municipal-level economic management rights and other municipal-level administrative rights according to the entrustment. However, according to the characteristics of the Hengqin New District administrative structure is not fully constructed, it is still only granted the administrative authority of the Hengqin New District Management Committee. Which powers will be delegated to the Hengqin New District this time? Zhuhai stipulates that the authority of Hengqin New Area mainly includes the approval or examination and approval of investment projects according to the municipal level management authority; the administrative rights related to construction projects such as land, planning, construction, transportation, environmental protection and water affairs are exercised according to the municipal level management authority; Implement first-level financial management; laws, regulations, rules, and other duties assigned by the municipal people's government.

He Ningka, member of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Party Committee and executive deputy mayor, summarized the “decentralization” as “the Hengqin New District is a state-level new district approved by the State Council to promote the development of Hengqin. It is a major and urgent political task”; Entrusted to grant Hengqin the authority for the approval of investment projects at the municipal level and the administrative rights related to the construction project."

What is the city-level economic management right and other municipal-level administrative powers? According to the authoritative department of Zhuhai, it is simply said that the power of examination and approval originally performed by the municipal direct departments such as the Municipal Science, Technology, Industry, Trade and Information Technology Bureau was delegated to the Hengqin New District Management Committee for approval and the Hengqin New District was provided. Correspond to the seal of approval. The purpose of this move is to improve the efficiency of administrative approval for project approval, land use, planning, etc., so that more and better projects can be settled in Hengqin New District.

How to achieve

Set the timetable to be completed within one month

In order to let the power be released to the Hengqin New District as soon as possible, the efficiency of administrative examination and approval will be improved. Zhuhai has set a timetable for all relevant functional departments. Zhuhai expressly requires that relevant functional departments of the city should support and guarantee the effective implementation of the reform, development and innovation measures of Hengqin New District. The management committee of Hengqin New District and the relevant functional departments of the city shall cooperate with each other.

Relevant seals and necessary Legal documents; strengthen the guidance to the entrusted institutions, designate special personnel to be responsible for liaison work, and assign business backbones to conduct business counseling and training for staff members entrusted by the entrusted authorities.

Exercising the power to make mistakes Hengqin bears himself

How are these powers released to the Hengqin New District? Zhuhai requires that the relevant functional departments of the city entrust the Hengqin New District Management Committee to exercise relevant specific administrative examination and approval powers, penalties and other administrative powers in accordance with the principle of “full authorization, independent exercise, consistency of powers and responsibilities, strengthening guidance, and active cooperation”. During the exercise of the authority entrustment, the Hengqin New District Management Committee and the relevant functional departments of the city shall agree on the entrusted matters. However, in the process of entrusting the authority, due to the fault of the Hengqin New District Administrative Committee, the administrative litigation is lost, the state compensation, etc., which need to bear the corresponding economic and administrative legal responsibilities, shall be undertaken by the Hengqin New District Management Committee. The management committee of Hengqin New District can follow the principle of “streamlining, unification and efficiency”, and try to integrate the relevant functions and powers entrusted to be exercised. Efforts will be made to shorten the administrative approval cycle and improve the efficiency of administrative examination and approval. Actively promote the "one-stop, one-stop" service model and establish a "full process, all-round, all-weather" service system.

Next step by legislation

Hengqin New District has municipal-level economic management rights and other municipal-level administrative rights. Is this consistent with the status of “Deputy Department Level” and “Provincial Government Organization” in Hengqin New District? Lei Qiang, a professor at Sun Yat-Sen University, pointed out that although Hengqin is a “deputy-level level” and “provincial government agency”, it is still legally mandated by the “Zhuhai Municipal Government”, which means that major decisions still have to be checked by Zhuhai. From this perspective, Hengqin New District has the power to have city-level economic management rights and other municipal-level administrative powers. According to the authoritative department of Zhuhai, the Hengqin New Area has higher authority than the three administrative districts of Xiangzhou, Doumen and Jinwan, because the three administrative districts can only exercise the economic management rights of the district level and other administrative powers. Next, the legislation will be used to grant high authority to Hengqin. In this way, unlike the Zhuhai High-tech Zone, although the high-tech zone also has the authority of the city-level economic management authority, it is mainly through the authorization of the municipal government, and the official seal of the high-tech zone approval must pass the relevant departments directly under the municipality. . And through the Zhuhai City People's Congress legislation to the Hengqin New District, the official seal of the Hengqin New District approval will be provided by the Hengqin New District itself, more direct and efficient. From this perspective, if the legislation is delegated to the Hengqin New District, it means that the scope of “decentralization” is wider than the high-tech zone. (Southern Metropolis Daily)
