New Delhi, Feb 25 (ANI): Seventy percent of 43 selected city governments of China failed to pass an administrative transparency evaluation, according to a blue book report.
Fifty-one out of 59 government administrations under the State Council also failed the transparency evaluation on Thursday.
The blue book, an annual report on China’s rule of law that was released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said administrative transparency has become the government’s shortcoming and needs improvement, the China Daily reports.
The report reviewed the implementation of the Regulations on the Disclosure of Government Information, a guideline issued by the State Council in 2007.
On the national level, the research panel chose budget information as the realm to assess the transparency of ministries and government administrations.
The National Bureau of Corruption Prevention and the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine were at the bottom of the list, each with less than 10 points. More than 50 percent of the administrations being assessed scored between 30 and 50.
A total of 13 local governments scored more than 60 points. (ANI)
