Official: Transparency key to public faith(官方表示:透明度对公众信誉很关

Official: <wbr>Transparency <wbr>key <wbr>to <wbr>public <wbr>faith(官方表示:透明度对公众信誉很关
 
A senior central government information official has urged local governments to be more open and transparent, saying their attempt to block media coverage of negative incidents was "too naive".
 
一位中央信息部的高级官员督促地方政府更开放和透明,称他们试图阻挡媒体报道负面事件的企图“太幼稚”。
 

Wang Guoqing, vice-minister of the State Council Information Office, said "blocking bad news" was becoming more difficult, given the wide use of new information technologies such as the Internet, mobile phones and the central government's commitment to information transparency.

 

国务院信息办公室副主任王国庆说由于新的信息技术,比如,互联网,手机的广泛应用和中央致力于加大信息透明度,封闭负面新闻越来越难了。

 

"It has been repeatedly proved 'information blockage' is like walking into a dead end," Wang told CCTV.

 

王在接受中央电视台采访时说“事实一再证明‘阻塞信息’将会走向死胡同。”

 

Wang revealed that some local government spokespersons used to believe that some 90 percent of "bad news" could be muffled while only 10 percent would be unluckily exposed by the media.

 

However, because governments at all levels had started to introduce a spokesperson scheme, information blockage was becoming increasingly outdated and impractical, he said.

 

Wang gave the four-year-old spokesperson scheme a score of 60 points on a full-score of 100-point evaluation system.

 

The recent brick kiln slave scandal highlighted the importance of a cooperative and forthcoming government to the media.

 

Having uncovered the illegal practice in April, Shanxi government had started cracking down on illegal brick kiln owners and rescued the first batch of slaves.

 

But keeping the information out of media spotlight until the scandal came under full public glare left the Shanxi government in a very vulnerable position.

 

"Had the government kept the media and the public informed, we would have seen different result on discussion of officials' accountability," Wang said.

 

Mao Shoulong, a professor at Beijjing-based Renmin University, said lots of local governments were still weighing the pros and cons of information transparency. They thought "saying something wrong" could be as bad as gagging the media.

 

"With the implementation of The Decree of Government Information Openness, by which the quality of being forthcoming will be accounted as the officials' accountability, things will be better,"Mao said.

 

Brushing media aside in handling incidents of public interest was destined to fail as public faith and support would be lost.

 

"We should enlist the media in any emergency plans," Wang said.

 

In the wake of the openness decree, which was approved in January and due to take effect next May, Wang said spokespersons alone were not enough to satisfy the public's demand for information.

 

Government and Party leaders at all levels should hone their news sense and improve media communication skills, he said.
