Regulations to Reduce Overseas Trips Using Public Funds

The City of Jinan, Shandong Province has issued new regulations to rein in overseas trips by government officials and to curtail trips for pleasure on the government accounts. The high-ranking officials must file trip information with the Party disciplinary committees. (Ed: It has been an uncontrollable phenomenon in China that the government officials travel overseas for pleasure using public funds. Many officials also escaped from China in this way when they felt they were about to be arrested for corruption charges.)
