Only eight days before the 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, the People’s Daily has published an article extolling the virtues of a little known (until today) public project that has been going on in Jiangxi Province.
The project involves the creation of a credit platform managed by local Party organs, the judiciary, banking supervision organs, and the media.
To promote the nation-wide adoption of this platform, the Central Propaganda Department, the SPC, CRBC have issued a notice on ‘Creating and Improving a Platform to Expose Persons Subject to Enforcement for Breaches of Trust’. At the moment of writing the full text of the Notice does not yet seem to be available.
Given the timing of its announcement, this is an important development. The article follows. More comments will be posted once the full text of the Notice becomes available.
