BEIJING - The eight-point frugality code, introduced by the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, aims to improve Party and government officials' work style.

Since it was adopted in December 2012, great efforts have been made by the Party to rectify undesirable work styles of formalism, bureaucratism, hedonism and extravagance.

During the past five years, some 176,000 violations have been investigated, nearly 240,000 CPC officials punished, and around 128,000 officials subjected to disciplinary action, according to the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).

The accountability system has also been intensified, with nearly 6,800 leading cadres held accountable on violations in 2016 and almost 4,000 in the first half of 2017.

Members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee has conducted 1,587 grassroots investigations in the past five years.

Nearly 190 golf courses were shut down across the country, and 625 offices set up by local authorities in Beijing have been closed.

The government has banned the construction of new government buildings and has vacated nearly 22.3 million square meters of government offices that were being misused.
