China's top economic regulator on Friday unveiled the latest draft version of the nationwide negative list for market access, as part of the government's ongoing efforts to introduce greater opening-up.

The draft negative list for 2021 indicates areas where investment is prohibited or restricted; all other areas are presumed to be open.

It now comprises 117 items, down from 123 in the 2020 version, according to a document released on the official website of the National Development and Reform Commission.

The NDRC has released the full text of the draft negative list online to seek public opinion from Oct 8 to 14. 

While the draft negative list has eased market access to a number of sectors, the country has added cryptocurrency mining to the draft list.

And the disciplinary training institutions for students in the compulsory education stage are not allowed to go public. 

According to the draft list, non-public capital shall not engage in news gathering, editing and broadcasting business.

Non-public capital shall not invest in the establishment and operation of news organizations, including news agencies, newspaper publishing units and radio and television broadcasting organizations.
