Gov't entities actively releasing information: commission


09:20, October 25, 2012

BEIJING, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- China's central and provincial government bodies actively publicized administrative information last year, according to a government statement released on Wednesday.

The central government voluntarily released about 1.5 million information items last year, while provincial governments released 28.9 million items, according to the statement from the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Ministry of Supervision.

The statement said a system of actively releasing administrative information has been basically established and the disclosure of budget information has been normalized.

The number of central government departments that disclosed their budgets expanded from 75 in 2010 to 92 in 2011, the statement said.

A total of 98 central government departments disclosed their expenditures on overseas travel, official vehicles and official receptions in 2011, according to the statement.

The municipal governments of Beijing and Shanghai were among the local governments that disclosed their public expenditures last year.

Since the introduction of an information disclosure regulation in May 2008, government entities at all levels have established channels to increase public access to official information, the statement said.

A report on the government's administrative transparency released in late September stated that the central government has become more transparent since 2009.

The report, issued by the Center for Public Participation Studies and Support (CPSS) at Beijing University, assessed the government's transparency in multiple categories, including organization and whether information was actively or passively disclosed.
