China Daily (USA) - - POLICY REVIEW - By WANG YIQING wangy­iqing@chi­

De­part­ments and min­istries un­der the State Coun­cil have re­sponded to a num­ber of public con­cerns in the past week, in­clud­ing set­ting up a miss­ing chil­dren in­for­ma­tion plat­form, pro­tec­tion of con­sumers’ rights, ex­e­cu­tion of ju­di­cial judg­ments, non-pay­ment of mi­grant work­ers’ wages, public re­cruit­ment in im­pov­er­ished and re­mote ar­eas and ru­ral toi­let ren­o­va­tion.

The Min­istry of Public Se­cu­rity has re­cently launched the sec­ond phase of a miss­ing chil­dren emer­gency in­for­ma­tion plat­form in Bei­jing. The plat­form al­lows po­lice to in­stantly re­lease in­for­ma­tion on miss­ing chil­dren and au­to­mat­i­cally passes the in­for­ma­tion to rel­e­vant new me­dia out­lets and ci­ti­zens in the sur­round­ing ar­eas where the chil­dren dis­ap­peared to let more ci­ti­zens get ac­cess to ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion about the miss­ing chil­dren. Ac­cord­ing to the min­istry, the plat­form has re­leased 286 ar­ti­cles of in­for­ma­tion for miss­ing chil­dren and found 260 miss­ing chil­dren in the six months since it was launched.

Ac­cord­ing to the draft im­ple­men­ta­tion reg­u­la­tion on the Law on Pro­tec­tion of the Rights and In­ter­ests of the Con­sumers re­leased on Nov 15, busi­ness op­er­a­tors will be for­bid­den from mak­ing phone calls, or send­ing short mes­sages or e-mails for com­mer­cial pro­mo­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the draft, busi­ness op­er­a­tors should es­tab­lish an in­for­ma­tion con­fi­den­tial­ity sys­tem, and should not pro­vide con­sumers’ per­sonal in­for­ma­tion to other par­ties with­out the con­sumers’ con­sent. Com­mer­cial calls, e-mails and short mes­sages are also pro­hib­ited.

The State Coun­cil is­sued an an­nounce­ment on ac­cel­er­at­ing su­per­vi­sion, warn­ing and pun­ish­ment mech­a­nisms for peo­ple who fail to carry out court de­ci­sions. It urges the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to take ef­fec­tive mea­sures to en­able such peo­ple to ex­e­cute the judg­ments by the court. In­for­ma­tion about those who refuse to ex­e­cute the judg­ments will be re­leased through the me­dia and on the in­ter­net. Their ap­pli­ca­tions for bank loans, busi­ness reg­is­tra­tion, tax ex­emp­tion, pur­chas­ing land and real es­tate will be re­stricted.

Twelve min­istries and de­part­ments, in­clud­ing the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity and the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion have jointly is­sued an an­nounce­ment to launch a spe­cial in­spec­tion on pay­ing mi­grant work­ers’ salaries, which aims to re­duce the amount of de­faults and re­solve such dis­putes be­fore the Spring Fes­ti­val 2017. The spe­cial in­spec­tion, from Nov 15, mainly fo­cuses on real es­tate con­struc­tion, trans­porta­tion, pro­cess­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing, as well as cater­ing ser­vices.

The Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity has is­sued an an­nounce­ment on im­prov­ing public in­sti­tu­tion re­cruit­ment work in poverty-stricken and re­mote ar­eas. The an­nounce­ment eases the re­stric­tions on age, ed­u­ca­tional back­ground, ma­jor and house­hold reg­is­tra­tion of ap­pli­cants to at­tract more tal­ent work­ing and liv­ing in im­pov­er­ished and re­mote ar­eas.
