China Focus: Leaders' practices inspire reform


10:55, December 15, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Government officials are now being pressured to follow in the footsteps of Communist Party of China (CPC) leaders who have adopted simple working methods in an attempt to shore up public trust.

Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, was recently seen carrying his own plate to pick up food at a cafeteria while touring a military facility in south China's Guangdong province, an act seen by some as an attempt to encourage officials to forego bureaucracy and entitlement.

Xi's inspection tour also featured no traffic restrictions, a practice commonly used to ensure security during inspection tours that has also inconvenienced many regular citizens.

Netizens have applauded Xi's practices during the tour, stating that he has set a good example by rejecting extravagance and reducing bureaucracy.

The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on Dec. 4 approved measures that ban welcome banners, red carpets, floral arrangements and grand receptions for official visits, as well as reduce traffic controls.
