BEIJING, June 8 (Xinhua) -- A white paper on China's Internet policy and development published on Tuesday said the Chinese government has actively created conditions for the people to supervise the government.

The white paper, released by the State Council Information Office and titled "The Internet in China", said that on the great majority of government websites, relevant email addresses and telephone numbers are made public, so that the governments can be informed of problems in their work.

In order to facilitate the public's reporting of corrupt and degenerate officials and suchlike, the central discipline inspection and supervision authorities have set up informant websites, it said.

"The informant websites are playing an important role in preventing and punishing corruption among officials," it said.

According to a sample survey cited by the paper, more than 60 percent of netizens have a positive opinion of the fact that the government gives wide scope to the Internet's role in supervision, and consider it a manifestation of China's socialist democracy and progress.

"The Internet provides unprecedented convenience and a direct channel for the people to exercise their right to know, to participate, to be heard and to oversee, and is playing an increasingly important role in helping the government get to know the people's wishes, meet their needs and safeguard their interests," said the paper.
