The State Council approved an evaluation method for mayors based on their role in implementing the “market basket” project.
A joint ministerial meeting, led by the Ministry of Agriculture, will be in charge of the whole process.
The assessment includes five factors: - production capacity, market liquidity, supervision of food quality and safety, regulation in supply and demand, and citizens’ satisfaction.
The evaluation, containing four levels, will be carried out once every two years. Any breakout event concerning product quality and safety during the assessment period will automatically result in a failure.
And four steps are involved in the evaluation process —self-assessment, preliminary appraisal, random checks and overall evaluation.
In addition, the assessment results will be part of the city governors’ performance evaluation for the year.
