From Xinhua (Via: China.org.cn): “Ding Yuanzhu, professor with Peking University, linked the accidents to the enhancement of the Party’s governance capability. He said that dealing with all kinds of crisis in a proper way has become an important part of the governance capability of the Communist Party of China.
“But some local governments are barely not aware of the importance of risk management for China’s economic and social development, and they are not duly competent in building a harmonious society,” said Prof. Ding.
“Governments at all levels should learn something from the Daping mine accident and think over seriously what should be done to better serve the people,” said the professor. ”
Also on Asia Labour News blog, one can see some photos from the Daping coal mine accident in Henan.
