Officials' resumes go online for public

A new channel has been established for the public to easily access information on government officials, as an online database containing more than 1,600 resumes of officials of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was put on trial Monday.

Web users can log onto the website, created by the People's Daily's website, and supported by the CPC's official news website, to use the database, which also contains information about senior leaders of public institutes and State-owned enterprises.

Users can insert names, keywords and queries, with all information shown being drawn from published news reports and websites of State organs.

Lin Zhe, a professor from the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, noted the information is from authoritative resources and that the database "will allow the public to exercise better supervision over the authorities."

Zhang Xin, an associate professor with the Renmin University of China, told the Global Times that China is seeking to construct an honest government and that ensuring the transparency of government affairs will lay the foundation for all government reform.

However, the public reaction was not very positive toward the launch of the database. Online comments on the database could not be found on China's microblog service platforms and most major news outlets.

Only, a news website, received 395 comments, and as of yesterday, only 52 comments of these were displayed on its comment pages. Among those comments being displayed, some said the information and the number of resumes was too limited, while some expressed their hopes that it would prove useful.

"The database has received feedback from Web users but has not sorted them out," said Sun Haifeng, director of the news department of the CPC's news website, adding that she could not give more information on the matter.
