China disciplinary bodies spent less in 2013, Xinhua says

China’s disciplinary and supervisory organs spent significantly less in 2013 amid the nation’s anti-extravagance drive, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday. Money spent on receptions, meetings and printing decreased by 61 percent, 59 percent and 13 percent respectively last year compared with the levels in 2012, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) was quoted as saying in a statement on Saturday. The reduced spending is the result of an “eight-point” anti-bureaucracy and formalism rule that was introduced at a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee in late 2012, it said.
