Ban on new of­fi­cial build­ings to be en­forced

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The cen­tral govern­ment vowed stronger su­per­vi­sion of its ban on the con­struc­tion of new govern­ment build­ings as part of an on­go­ing fru­gal­ity cam­paign.

Au­thor­i­ties in­tro­duced a fiveyear ban in July on the con­struc­tion of govern­ment build­ings, but some lo­cal au­thor­i­ties ig­nored the rules, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment re­leased af­ter a State Coun­cil ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing presided over by Pre­mier Li Ke­qiang.

So far, 147 of­fi­cials have been in­ves­ti­gated and 55 pun­ished for vi­o­la­tions.
