China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Chi­nese author­i­ties can now check through a shared mar­riage database to see whether a per­son has reg­is­tered for mar­riage at a Chi­nese em­bassy or con­sulate over­seas, the Min­istry of Civil Af­fairs said on May 16. Do­mes­tic data are also avail­able at over­seas diplo­matic in­stal­la­tions, which the min­istry said could help curb mis­con­duct in­volv­ing mar­riage reg­is­tra­tions. It came af­ter the min­istry de­cided to share the data with the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs, a move in line with the cen­tral govern­ment’s pol­icy to boost data con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween de­part­ments.
