Of the interviewees, 25.8 percent were born between 1970 and 1979 and 52.3 percent were born between 1980 and 1989; and 16.3 percent of them are public servants and governmental officials.

In the survey, 85.5 percent of interviewees said frankly that problems of China's official reception are still very serious and 87.4 percent of them said that China should issue standards for the official reception as soon as possible.

Regarding the characters of the standards, interviewees' first choice is the "transparency" (66.3 percent), "enforcement" (62.9 percent" ranks second, the "feasibility" (62.7 percent) ranks third, and the "national uniformity" (51.0 percent) ranks last.

Who should participate in making the standards for the official reception? In the survey, the option of "public" (77.0 percent) ranks the first and the option of "NPC deputies and members of CPPCC" (48.0 percent) ranks second. Other options include: "media" (35.4 percent), "experts and scholars" (32.2 percent) and "governmental officials" (24.3 percent).

What should be done as priorities in reforming the official reception?
