China's leadership vows more pro-frugality measures

BEIJING, Jan. 23-- China's top leadership on Friday called for further implementation of its pro-frugality regulations as "some problems that cannot be ignored still exist".

The Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee met on Friday to hear reports on the execution of the "Eight-point" regulations, which since the end of 2012 had banned extravagance and formalism among CPC officials and cadres.

The meeting said the regulations had been implemented with satisfactory results and had brought the Party and the masses closer.

However, some prominent problems still exist, the meeting concluded, as some officials abide by the regulations not willingly but just because they were under pressure.

In addition, some violators had changed their modus operandi and sought alternate measures of banned behaviors in order to dodge punishment, and certain systems needed to be tweaked to be properly realized, according to the meeting.

The work in 2015 will focus on the implementation of regulations on government receptions, offices, meetings and training programs, overseas business trips and secretaries of officials, their concurrent posts in social organization, and regulation on salaries of state-owned enterprises' executives.

The meeting recognized the need for special attention to public vehicles, training centers, and private clubs and resorts.

Bribery in law enforcement, supervision and public services must be strictly punished. Entertainment and tours funded with public money should also be addressed, according to the meeting.
