BEIJING - Public servants are to receive systematic and compulsory training in ethics over the next five years, according to the State Administration of Civil Service.

The ethics campaign, which will be "of great significance" in lifting public confidence in the government and in civil servants as well as in consolidating the Party's governance position, will be carried out from 2011 to 2015, it announced.

Civil servants in senior positions, or those who "directly face or serve the public", will receive intensive training as they are regarded as the key recipients of the training, it added.

According to the announcement, government employees are required to complete a training course of no less than six hours as part of a "long-term" training mechanism.

The training will include lectures and case studies to improve civil servants' loyalty to the country and people, as well as their sense of responsibility and honesty.

The State Administration of Civil Service also said in the announcement that the ethical standard of performance will always be taken into account in selecting, evaluating and supervising civil servants.

There are 6.78 million civil servants in China, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, more than 60 percent of them work at the grassroots level.
