China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION | DIGEST -

Au­thor­i­ties in Jiangsu prov­ince said vil­lagers will be the main ben­e­fi­cia­ries of a new 2 mil­lion yuan ($326,650), 1,500-sq-m of­fice build­ing that some res­i­dents have crit­i­cized as too ex­pen­sive and ex­trav­a­gant, Xin­hua News Agency re­ported on Sun­day. Zhang Huax­ing, Party sec­re­tary of Qinxin, a vil­lage in Changzhou, said the build­ing will re­place the old of­fice build­ing, which is too small to serve the ap­prox­i­mately 2,500 vil­lagers.
