China’s cabinet has proposed a sweeping overhaul of the central government agencies that it oversees, according to a draft report it presented to the country’s congress on Tuesday.

The reorganization, the eighth since the country’s reform and opening-up in the late 1970s, comes amid a slowing economy, challenges facing market regulators from innovation and a social shift, as well as constraints in environmental protection and natural resources.
