Grassroots government affairs are closely related to the interests of the masses, and government affairs information must be made public as much as possible.

The grassroots government must clarify the scope and methods of public participation in administrative decision-making, and make it public. For matters involving the vital interests of the masses, hearings and discussions shall be adopted to fully hear opinions. In the implementation of policies and projects, it is necessary to respond to public concerns in a timely manner. For matters that fall within the autonomy of the village committees and neighborhood committees, the grassroots government must guide and support autonomy according to law. Second, we must adapt to local conditions and seek truth from facts to promote open standardization of grassroots government affairs. The government at the grassroots level shall compile and complete the standard catalogue of government affairs disclosure matters at the same level by the end of 2020, and make the actual administrative process and results public. Third, we must fully disclose government service matters, work instructions and procedures through online and offline. County-level government portals should set up a unified online portal to facilitate business and the masses.
