A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has urged Party and governmental organizations to strictly follow policies on using public vehicles and holding celebration events in a bid to stem extravagance.

He Guoqiang, head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), made the remarks on Monday at a meeting on regulating celebration events and the use of vehicles in Party and governmental organizations.

He noted that some Party and government officials purchased luxury cars for their units and used them for personal matters, and that unnecessary celebrations, seminars and forums were held using government funds.

"(These behaviors) resulted in a considerable waste of money and personnel and increased the burdens on the public and enterprises. Civilians are very concerned about these improper behaviors," He said.

While urging strict implementation of policies regarding officials' use of public vehicles, He stressed that various celebration events and meetings held by Party and government units must first undergo strict approval procedures, and those unnecessary and non-standard events must be canceled.

According to He, officials and organizations found conducting such activities will be educated and given disciplinary punishments. Those whose violations are serious will be punished accordingly.
