BEIJING, May 24 (Xinhua) -- China has vowed efforts to streamline cargo clearance procedures to smooth foreign trade and improve the business environment.

The "single-window system," a trade facilitation policy that enables faster and easier cargo clearance, will be adopted in all ports nationwide, according to a statement released Wednesday after an executive meeting of the State Council, presided over by Premier Li Keqiang.

An information-sharing platform will also be created to reduce the documents required for traders.

Unreasonable ports fees will be reduced or eliminated.
