Guangzhou has again won the "Chinese Award for the Government with Rule of Law".

The Award is the first one of its kind in China launched by an academic organization - the Research Center for Government by Law at the China University of Political Science and Law. Guangzhou has been selected for the Award following a rigorous evaluation process against scientific criteria on efforts to build a government with rule of law. Guangzhou's winning of the Award is a good indication of the recognition afforded by society, academia and the press to the Guangzhou Municipal Government.

In 2002, the Guangzhou Municipal Government became the first local government to release a set of local rules and regulations - the Regulations on the Disclosure of Information by Guangzhou Municipal Government. Under the Regulations, all government information is made accessible to the public with few exceptions, and the government guarantees the rights of individuals and entities to obtain information, express their opinions, supervise the government and participate in public administration. The regulations are therefore dubbed "the Sunshine Bill". The implementation of the Regulations helped Guangzhou win the first "Chinese Award for the Government with Rule of Law" in 2011.
