The National Bureau of Statistics has notched up a figure of its own. It's opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Dozens of people, from all walks of life, were greeted by Bureau officials. They saw how statistics were produced, as well as some of the methods adopted in collecting data on the spot. At a press conference, officials also spoke face to face with the visitors. Bureau Chief Ma Jiantang, says the data produced by the Bureau is becoming increasingly accurate, with more advanced technology and methods.

Ma Jiantang, Director of National Bureau of Statistics said "We will use modern technology as well as we possibly can. Such as hand-held electronic terminals to record prices and submit them directly to the data statistics authorities. This eliminates data gathering at lower levels and therefore reduces possibilities of intervention. We will spare no efforts to improve our capacities and the quality of statistics, so as to raise the credibility of the National Statistics Bureau."
