China Water Pollution Fund Misused

China's audit office found that 17.6 billion yuan ($2.56 billion) earmarked for water pollution prevention work in 2016 was not used "effectively", Xinhua reported Sunday. The funds were meant to go toward 397 projects in 18 provinces, with some regions seeing serious failings in enforcing environmental protection laws, the report was cited by Reuters. China's National Audit Office has told 31 provinces to check the use of funds to treat water pollution, Xinhua said. In December, the audit office said more than 3,000 people had been punished and 160 billion yuan in funds "rectified" during an audit of the 2015 budget. In August, China's top economic planner said it would audit 1.8 trillion yuan allocated to special construction funds.
