China starts 5-year ban on new gov't buildings (4)


08:47, July 24, 2013


The directive says the ban is an important part of building a more transparent government and strengthening ties between the CPC and the public, adding that authorities at all levels should create related standards and measures for the ban's implementation.

Departments in charge of investment should perfect approval procedures and internal supervision,while financial departments should tighten the management of public finance budgets by refraining from allotting funds for building projects without going through relevant approval procedures, according to the directive.

The renovation of existing government buildings and the construction of new buildings should be made known to the public, the directive says.

Land and resource management departments should tighten land supplies and management, while auditing departments should strengthen supervision over renovation and construction projects, the directive says.

Discipline inspection authorities should look into violations related to such projects, the directive says, adding that those responsible for allowing projects that violate regulations should be harshly punished.

Relevant departments should report their progress to the General Office of the CPC Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council before Sept. 30.

The general offices will supervise and inspect new renovations and construction, as well as inform the public of such inspections.

Wang said harsh punishments for those who defy the ban will be necessary in order to ensure the ban's effectiveness.
