Shine light on officials' dealings, crack corruption


08:02, March 28, 2012

BEIJING, March 27 (Xinhua) -- China has said it will promote the logging and publication of officials' personal information, an important signal of the country's determination to strengthen supervision of people in authority and fight against corruption.

At the State Council's annual conference on anti-corruption work on Monday, Premier Wen Jiabao called for more transparency concerning officials' personal details including income, investments, marital status and their overseas travel and that of their family members.

The Communist Party of China attaches great importance to the reporting of officials' personal records, which is one of the most important measures in inner-Party supervision.

After two amendments since its debut in 1997, new rules for officials reporting personal issues were published by the central government in 2010. They stipulated that details of housing, investments, spouses' and children's work should be reported.

That personal information concerning officials and cadres will probably affect the exertion of their public power and meet public interest, so the issues do not remain private and instead are opened to scrutiny.

Various corruption cases have showed that the opacity of officials' properties resulted in no supervision over them, thus creating conditions in which it was easy for these individuals to fall into corruption.
