Purchase of new military cars should be arranged within a centralized system and vehicles should be selected from domestic brands, said the document issued by the four headquarters of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) — General Staff Headquarters, General Political Department, General Logistics Department and General Armament Department.
The document, aimed to promote frugality and oppose waste among military and armed police forces, was issued after approval of the Central Military Commission (CMC) and CMC Chairman Xi Jinping.
The document said money used by the army should be strictly regulated and the budgeting process should be improved.
Incomes and expenses should be managed by a centralized system and reforms are needed in accounting and asset management processes.
The document urged strengthened supervision over spending and trimmed administrative costs.
Spending on domestic and overseas business trips should also be strictly controlled, it said.
The number of staff members on trips, as well as days needed and places to visit should be limited to the necessary minimum level. Transport, food and accommodation during the trips should follow regulations, it added.
Also, the document stressed frugality in official receptions among military units.
Personal banquets financed with public funds as well as giving or accepting money, securities, souvenirs and local products are not allowed.
As part of efforts to cut unnecessary meetings and activities, the circular said celebrations, forums, exhibitions and performances should be strictly controlled.
Costs on such activities will not be earmarked in military expenditure budgets, except on those arranged by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, the CMC and the PLA headquarters, it said.
The document urged efforts to rein in extravagances in military offices and the repeated allocation of houses for officers.
Leaders and senior-level officers should take the lead in practicing the requirements, the circular said.
It said that supervision by CPC committees, disciplinary authorities, inspectors and the public should be employed to rule out extravagance in the army.8.03KRelated StoriesRough road to continue for domestic carmakersForeign brands no longer top choiceForeign brands no longer top choiceShanghai Fashion Week focuses on domestic brandsSurvey: Sharp rise in domestic brand qualityPhotoRetail giant checks outTop 10 Chinese car maker movesEarth hour around the worldWorlds eight green stadiumsHighlights of the Baselworld 2014View from on highChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerFew textbook answers from Nobel prize winner Things you didnt know about Max BaucusMost ViewedTodays Top NewsNHTSA says finds no defect trend in Tesla Model S sedansWTO rare earth ruling is unfairAmway says 2014 China sales may grow 8%President Xi in Europe: Forging deals, boosting businessCNOOC releases 2013 sustainability reportLocal production by Chery Jaguar Land Rover this yearCar lovers test their need for speed in BMW Mission 3China stocks close mixed MondayHot TopicsTaxi booking appInternet finance12306.cnHousing priceWeChat4GChina MobileIPOs resumptionEditors PicksTop 10 Chinese car maker moves Worry-free financing plans aid car owners What a phone can do via lens 9 mysterious plane disappearances SpecialsGlobal business leaders weigh in on reformsBillionaires speak out on reform rolesInternet finance is in, but is banking out?…Media : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Partners : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Portals : |||Sina|Sohu|Tom|Tencent|NetEase|Hexun|Organizations : |China US Focus|FrenCham|CPAFFC|CPIFA||eBeijing|AmCham|SwissCham BJ|…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
