“Heaven” for the Chinese Bureaucrats
By using the taxpayers’ money, the Chinese officials are still living in the “heaven,” according to the Japanese media. In April 2008, a 11-members delegation for “the human resources inspection” from Xinyu-city Jiangxi Province went to the USA. The delegation has done nothing with human resources, and instead toured the Statue of Liberty and the White House tours. In February, so-called “21 days Inspection Tour” delegation visited to Hawaii, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. Their expenses for 23 local officials cost total 650,000 yuan for the taxpayers. But, the most popular places for the Chinese officials to spend money of taxpayers is South Africa. The average visit to South Africa yearly from China is about 200 delegations, and annual expenses for these trips is 50,000,000 yuan. The most preferred gifts for the Chinese officials are Diamond and Rolex watches. Unfortunately, most Chinese citizens do not even know these facts.
