Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said Saturday that the government will improve its management of religious affairs in line with laws and regulations.

Government officials would be better educated in the laws and regulations regarding religious affairs and carry out their duties legally, said Hui at a function to mark the fifth anniversary of the Regulations on Religious Affairs, the first formal rules on religious affairs issued by the State Council.

In addition, religious groups and people should be more aware of abiding by the law in their religious activities, through proper education, he said.

He said the government would update the regulations and improve their application, though he gave no detailed plans.

With the assistance of religious affairs administrations, religious groups should improve their internal management, including internal rules and frameworks, he said, adding that they should keep better clergy records and standardize religious education.

"We hope all religious groups can follow the regulations in their daily operation and also can help improve legal awareness among religious followers so that they can be law-abiding citizens," he said.
