All provincial, autonomous region and municipal People’s Government, the Ministry of Information Industry, SARFT:

In recent years, following the development of our country’s telecommunications undertaking, radio and television television network construction has also developed rapidly. But, because of all sorts of reasons, many localities have adopted method of creating a system of their own and established independent network in network construction, and problems have emerged  of duplicate cable radio and television network construction, causing waste of State resources and funds, etc. In order to realistically avoid duplicate construction, the State Council has recently convened a premier business conference, which conducted special theme research, and has made provisions on this. On the basis of the indications of the State Council leading comrades, hereby, the relevant spirit and provisions are notified as follows:

Controlling departments for radio, film and television shall determinedly implement the provisions concerning government organ reform plans passed by the 2nd Plenum of the 15th Party Congress and the 1st Meeting of the 9th National Peoples Congress and the provisions concerning “Three Fixed Quotas” approved by the State Council, being that in the management of radio and television transmission networks, government and enterprise separation shall be firmly implemented, enterprise-type radio and television transmission companies shall be established, the comprehensive planning and sector management of the controlling department for information industry shall be accepted, and controlling departments for radio, film and television may not conduct administrative intervention. In the construction of radio and television transmission networks, it is necessary to do linking and coordination with State telecommunications backbone networks and special telecommunications and newly constructed networks well, fully utilize present telecommunications networks, and realistically avoid duplicate construction. All levels’ local governments may not approve new radio and television transmission network construction programmes by themselves, and where there is a true need for new construction, it must be strictly reported to the Ministry of Information Industry according to procedure, and examined and approved by the State Council.

国办函〔1998〕33号

各省、自治区、直辖市人民政府,信息产业部、广电总局:

近年来,随着我国电信事业的发展,广播电视传输网络建设也得到快速发展。但是,由于种种原因,许多地方在网络建设中,采取自成体系独立建网的做法,出现了有线广播电视网重复建设造成国家资源和资金浪费等问题。为了切实避免重复建设,国务院近日召开总理办公会议进行了专题研究,对此作出了规定。根据国务院领导同志的指示,现将有关精神和规定通知如下:

广播电影电视主管部门应坚决按照党的十五届二中全会和九届全国人大一次会议通过的政府机构改革方案和国务院批准的“三定”规定执行,即广播电视传输网络的管理,应严格实行政企分开,成立企业化的广播电视传输公司,接受信息产业主管部门的统筹规划和行业管理,广播电影电视主管部门不得进行行政干预。广播电视传输网络的建设,要搞好与国家通信主干网、专用电信用和新建网的衔接和协调,充分利用现有通信网络,切实避免重复建设。各级地方政府均不得自行批准新建广播电视传输网络项目,确需新建的,要严格按程序上报信息产业部和国务院审批。
