District civil servants' finances made public

While officials at or above a certain level in China are required to report their personal incomes every year, a district in Xuzhou of Jiangsu province went one step further and made the declarations public.

According to the local government of Xuzhou's Jiawang district, the 600 officials at section head level and higher are obliged to declare their personal assets, including real estate, savings and investments, and those of their spouses and children.

All the information has been uploaded to the local government's official website, which is available to the public.

Some residents, however, are skeptical of the information, and officials acknowledge that it isn't verified before it is put online.

Zhang Qiuyue, director of the district's commission for discipline inspection, said that most cities and districts using the property declaration system just upload the information on the internal website of the workplace, and only those newly promoted officials' information is publicized.

"But Jiawang district decided to do something differently and thoroughly," Zhang said.

"All the officials, both senior and newly promoted, are required to declare their assets on the government's official website and receive supervision from netizens and the public."
