As the Communist Party of China (CPC) prepares to celebrate the 90th anniversary of its founding, the party is making extra efforts to ensure that its officials are living up to the standards first established by the party's founders back in 1921.

At a press conference held by the Central Commission for Disciple Inspection (CCDI) on Wednesday, a senior discipline official said at a Wednesday press conference that graft and corruption are still a threat, as the country remains in a period of social transition.

Wu Yuliang, deputy secretary of the CCDI, said the Party will tighten their management of government-purchased vehicles and supervise the use of government vehicles to prevent abuse by officials.

The CPC Central Committee has been working to create a complete inventory for the country's millions of government vehicles since April 25.

Official transportation is not the only area under scrutiny. Chinese officials are seeing new regulations and restrictions in other areas as well.

Wu said that while officials are not prevented from engaging in leisure activities at their own expense, there are restrictions on officials using public money for private fun.

Wu cited several significant corruption cases, including the execution of Tianjin Party head Zhang Zishan back in 1952 and the removal of former Railway Minister Liu Zhijun earlier this year, as evidence of the CPC's determination to fight corruption.
