Government of China is trying to boost public interest in its parliament and its companion advisory body by setting up web logs for members as they meet this week.
Called 'bo ke' in Chinese, blogs are popular with young people despite strict censorship rules.The patriotically named 'Strong Country Blog' is run by the People's Daily, the newspaper of the ruling Communist Party. The blogs are housed to feature public reaction. In the Great Hall of the People, where the lawmakers meet, dozens of computers sit in the lobby for delegates to use and opine fearlessley. It sets a forum for the evaluation by the masses.
