Audit Report Shows “Three Public Outlays” Eating Up CCP Budget

18 Jul

An article in Sohu explains that the Audit Commission recently did a detailed review of the “three public outlays” (三公经费 ) of over 30 Chinese government departments for 2010.  The so-called “three public outlays” include public entertainment fees (公务接待费), international travel expenses (因公出国费) and vehicle purchase and operating costs (公车购置及运行费).  For these 30 departments, the costs add up to a total of 95 billion yuan, with vehicle purchase and maintenance costs taking up nearly 62 billion yuan of the pie.  That’s what the cartoon below indicates as the “three public outlays,” which are represented by white caterpillars eating their way through the plant that represents the Chinese Central Government.
