Governance capacity, efficiency improve significantly over past decade

Jinan's governance capacity and efficiency in both urban and rural areas have improved significantly over the past decade, said Liu Qiang, Party secretary of Jinan, at a news conference on Sept 27.

The city has taken major steps in developing democracy and rule of law. Over the past decade, 28 local regulations have been enacted and more than 6,000 legal publicity activities have been held annually.

The public legal service system continues to improve as well. Since 2012, the number of practicing lawyers, notaries and legal aid practitioners in the city has increased by 163 percent, 140 percent and 414 percent, respectively.

The city's grassroots governance capacity has greatly improved as well. The Jinan government has developed the new era's "Fengqiao experience", based on a township in Zhejiang province that focuses on the actual needs of urban residents, creating a comfortable and safe social environment. A one-stop service system for resolving conflicts and disputes for the public has been basically established.

The city's safety and stability have been also improved with the local government's efforts to promote harmony. In a national public safety satisfaction evaluation, Jinan has ranked among the top 10 for the past five years, and has been named the "Safest City in China".
