China to promote morality of govt officials


10:34, December 16, 2011

With moral training sessions for civil servants underway in China, the country will carry the whole effort forward as a strategic task, aiming to achieve a greater sense of moral uprightness among all government staff, according to news released on the Web site of the State Administration of Civil Service (SACS).

An unnamed official from the SACS said the outline for the training sessions has defined the work as a strategic task, which is very rare and implies a high degree of importance. By promoting the task, it is hoped the spirit of impartial and fair decision-making can be instilled in government work and prevent corrupt actions from occurring in the first place.

The outline has divided the training into three parts: basic knowledge, case studies, and four duties (loyalty to the country, a readiness to serve the people, a sense of obligation, and persistence in fairness and honesty).

In the part called "basic knowledge," the ethics of ancient officials such as Liu Xiang of the Western Han Dynasty (206BC-25AD), Wen Tianxiang of the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and Lin Zexu of the Qing Dynasty (1644 -1911) are presented in an analytical way.

According to the unnamed official, the government will continue to enhance morality as an important criterion in the year-end assessment of officials nationwide.
