China sets rules for post-official work life, Xinhua says

China has ordered recently retired officials to steer clear of paid work in sectors over which they used to have jurisdiction as part of rules introduced to root out corruption, Xinhua reported Wednesday. To avoid conflicts of interest, former officials may not work in businesses within their former jurisdiction or engage in profit-making activities related to their former positions within three years of leaving the public service, the report said. They must also report their activities to their former units if they want to work in enterprises outside of their former jurisdiction, it said.
