For more discussion on the new regulations, we are joined in the studio by our current affairs commentator Mr. Gregory Yingnien Tsang and also on the phone by Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, chairman of the Kuhn Foundation.

Q1. Good evening to you gentlemen. According to the new regulations, government officials above deputy county level need to declare their assets, marital status, whereabouts and employment of family members. This is obviously aimed at curbing corruption of party officials, do you think it will work?

Q2. How do you think the rest of the world will read this new policy ?

Q3. When it comes to implementation, some are saying that the officials only report their wealth to the superior but not to the public, so do you think these measures are kind of watered down?

Q4. There is also some contention on the privacy issue. How do we balance the need to protect privacy and government transparency?
