Scholar: Lack of Social Integrity Attributed to Government’s Lack of Credibility

During an interview with Outlook Weekly, Zhou Xiaozheng, a professor at the Institute of Law and sociology, China’s People’s University, discussed the government’s credibility. Zhou said that China’s current lack of social integrity is primarily due to problems with the government’s integrity. According to Outlook, the integrity crisis has become the most urgent social issue in China. Zhou believes that there are serious problems of varying degrees with the integrity of the government, businesses and individuals, the most serious being the government’s integrity. “If the government is not truthful, it will be difficult for businesses to maintain their integrity, not to mention personal honesty.”
