Civil service jobs losing glamour in China

Over 10,000 civil servants in China have signed up for jobs in the private sector during the first three weeks of this year's hiring season.

According to Zhaopin.com, more civil servants are considering ditching their jobs in the traditional job-hunting season that started in February with their number increasing by 34 percent year-on-year.

Positions at property developers, financial institutions and Internet-related firms are among the jobs favored by jobseekers.

Insiders said that the recent exodus of civil servants may be related to the ongoing anti-corruption campaign, as many perks for government employees including luxuries banquets and cars have been cut.

According to a report by China Newsweek, between January and June last year more than 20 officials resigned from ministry-level government agencies, many from deputy department head-level positions.

In the past, a career in the civil service was usually considered the glorious and stable "iron rice bowl", an ideal choice for many Chinese people.


Beijing to ban vehicles that fail to meet emission standards

Beijing will ban gasoline-powered vehicles that fail to meet the National Emission Standard II from the road starting January 1 of next year to cut pollution.

According to the municipal environmental protection bureau, the vehicles will be banned from entering the city's Sixth Ring Road.

Beijing currently imposes the National Emission Standard V for vehicles, similar to the Euro V standard in Europe. The city imposed the National Emission Standard I in 1999 and the National Emission Standard II in 2004. With each new standard, actual pollutant amounts dropped by 30 to 50 percent per vehicle.

Beijing plans to introduce policies to improve the cost and reduce the use of vehicles. It will also research congestion charges to cut pollution.

Beijing has eliminated "yellow-label cars," which failed to meet the National Emission Standard I by the end of 2014.

Zhuhai city adopts 'one dog per family' policy

Zhuhai in South China's Gunagdong province is the latest city to set a limit of one dog per family.

The new pet ownership rule states that dog owners "must have full capacity for civil conduct, have permanent residence, and live by themselves."

The policy will come into effect on June 1.

Liu Zhimin, deputy police chief of Zhuhai, said that if tenants share a house with the original owners then only one dog is allowed to be registered at the address.

The policy may also affect housing sales.

If a house has already used up its "one family one dog" quota then another pet dog would not be allowed to be registered there, even if the house was to change hands. Both the seller and purchaser would have to consider this before reaching a deal.

It is estimated that more than 70,000 dogs are registered in Zhuhai, with the pet population as well as related problems having increased in recent years.
