By the end of 2018, all reform pilot tasks had been completed, resulting in

Through WeChat registration, the time for enterprises to register has been reduced to just three days.
With the "manifest merging", a new clearance model, going into effect in May 2018, the clearance time and fees for shipping bulk goods by rail has been reduced greatly.
With help from the People's Bank of China, the zone was able to provide small and micro-enterprises with less than 2 million yuan in pure credit, further improving financial services.
