Commerce Ministry asks low-risk regions to ease restrictions
The government has urged regions deemed at low risk from the contagion to lift their control measures, a senior official said on Saturday.
The Ministry of Commerce has asked the provinces and cities that face low risk from the epidemic to promptly remove their excessive control measures, in order to make life more convenient for the people, Wang Bin, head of the ministry’s department of market operation and consumption, said at a press conference.
The ministry will guide enterprises to implement classified measures to prevent and control the disease, and foster a safe environment for consumers, Wang said.
It will guide local bureaus to organize activities to boost consumption based on local conditions, and restore the market to normalcy as soon as possible, he added.
