Chinese officials’ extravagancies consume 30% of the National Income

Posted by Author on September 4, 2007

Breaking News, Sound of Hope Radio Network-Man Han Banquet

The Communist regime’s extravagant entertainment consumes 30% of the National Income.

Estimated by the Chinese official media, the government officials tours overseas, commuting and holding of banquets on public funds, namely “the three carts”, gobble up 30% of China’s fiscal income. Just overseas tours by the officials would exceed 400 billion RMB annually, gravely devouring the state’s wealth.

[Jiangnan Times] affiliated to the People’s Daily that is controlled by the Party issued a commentary, stating: “despite the overseas tours frittering away the public funds tremendously, with some of the officials swelled with fortune, their conduct could not be categorized as corruption but as bending the law. Thus, overseas tours on public funds have become very popular. It is estimated that the annual cost of overseas tours by the officials goes over 400 billion RMB. If the figure is calculated at 50,000 RMB for an official’s trip overseas, 800,000 people make their overseas tours on public funds every year.

In many areas, “overseas tours for observation” has virtually become a kind of fringe for the officials with their touring spots, frequency and consumption scale set out as per the ranks of officials.

As disclosed by the media, over a hundred travel agents are engaged in arranging business trips for the officials especially, who largely bribe the officials to obtain their business.

These travel agents are specialized in establishing a series of business, such as mapping out itinerary, handling the invitations, application for the overseas trips etc. The travel agents also help forge a set of itinerary for the Foreign Affairs Ministry for approval on behalf of “the observation groups”, with a complex agenda written, another set which presents the real routes of the tours; after returning, the travel agents write reports of “the observation group”, providing “images of the business observation trips” etc.

Due to the growing scale of overseas tours financed on public funds, the costs are escalating. Some officials removed other funds to finance their trips overseas, including removing tax incomes, land development incomes, the retained foreign currency, purchasing foreign currency with RMB, devouring funds from sections of administration and other categorized public funds.

    The elite are spending enormous sums of money, while over 70% of the country is made up of dirt-poor farmers. That’s communism, for ya…
