China Strips Junior Officials of Car Perks

China will stop providing cars to junior officials and reduce the size of its government fleet as part of measures to cut public spending.

Communist Party cadres and government officials ranked below vice minister will be given monthly allowances of 500 yuan ($80) to 1,300 yuan in lieu of government vehicles, the official Xinhua News Agency reported, citing the Party and State Council. The reforms will be completed in two to three years, it said.
