Pilot reform to the effect was tried in two cities in Jiangsu and Zhejiang last year, and the People's Bank of China (PBC) said Tuesday it will now expand the reform to the whole of the two provinces.

The reform is expected to cut the average time for opening a corporate account from about four days to just one to two days.

The PBC will encourage commercial banks to innovate their accounts services for private, small and micro-sized enterprises.
