Shanxi vows to decentralize key approval functions, paper says

North China’s Shanxi province has adopted a policy delegating the authority to approve the appointment of key officials, engineering projects, procurement and financial arrangements to individual directors, rather than remaining in the hands of a small group of provincial leaders, as part of efforts to curb corruption and abuse of power, the Beijing Times reported Monday, citing sources from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. Several other regions, including Guangdong, Liaoning, Anhui, Yunnan and Chongqing, are planning to roll out a similar policy, the report said.
