BEIJING - People who want to have a better idea of what the Beijing government is doing now have a more convenient and swift way at their disposal - visiting an online information room.

Information from the official micro blog, or Weibo, covering 21 departments under the Beijing municipal government, is assembled in the online information room, launched on Thursday at

Of the 21 departments, 10 newly opened their Weibo accounts on Thursday, such as the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Statistics and the Beijing Municipal Commission of Education.

The other 11, such as the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau, already had Weibo accounts.

Wang Hui, director of the information office of Beijing municipal government, said more municipal departments will join the online room by opening their Weibo accounts.

All departments involved will release latest policies or regulations through this platform, where the public can have an interaction with concerned spokespersons on various issues, she said.

Wang said some departments have used Weibo to communicate with the public, but many others still followed the traditional way of releasing information, which was not timely and interactive enough.
