China on Tuesday unveiled a massive plan for cabinet restructuring to make the government more efficient and service-oriented.
The institutional reform plan of the State Council, or China's cabinet, will be submitted to the on-going first session of the 13th National People's Congress for deliberation and approval.
According to a document on the plan, the number of ministerial-level entities will be reduced by eight to 26.
In addition, the number of vice-ministerial-level entities will be cut by seven.
Those to be formed include a ministry of natural resources, a ministry of veterans affairs, a ministry of emergency management, an agency for international development cooperation, a state immigration administration, and a banking and insurance regulatory commission.
