A Hubei city hands down quota on liquor consumption – Hu Cheng

From Chutian Metro Daily via sina.com (in Chinese), translated by CDT (link):

Hubei‘s Hanchuan city government recently passed down a list of quota for liquor consumption, in public-fund-financed treats, of a local brand to government agencies and local townships in its jurisdiction, mostly in thousands of US dollars. The total amount of all the quota is 2 million renminbi a year, or $250,000.

The agencies who meet the liquor consumption quota in the year, according to the document, will be rewarded by 10% of the amount, while those who do not will be publicly criticized. This is, the document says, to “optimize the economic develooment environment” and create a nice investment attraction atmosphere.

An official with the city’s industry and commerce bureau denied the existence of the document, while another official at the city government acknowledged the document, and defended the legitimacy of the practice of encouraging the city’s agencies to use the liquor.
