Drawing on remarks made yesterday by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao at the World Economic Forum in Dalian, an article from People's Daily Online today addresses the issue of reporting of assets by government officials (官员财产申报) -- an issue many see as crucial in fighting against corruption. The article notes that Wen has made direct reference on three occasions in the past two years to the importance of making such information public: 1. On March 5, 2010, in his government work report; 2. On February 28, 2011, in an online chat with internet users; 3. On September 15 at the World Economic Forum. Comments on the People's Daily Online news story as it appears on QQ.com reveal the level of skepticism the public has generally about the likelihood Party leaders will take real steps toward reporting the assets of government officials. One web user wrote simply: "Can they do it? That will be difficult."
