BEIJING - The Supreme People's Court (SPC) on Wednesday announced plans to improve its work style, echoing a call by the newly elected leadership of China's ruling party to reject extravagance and reduce bureaucracy.

The SPC's plans are based on building closer ties with the public, promoting judicial transparency, giving voices to people from all social sectors in judicial affairs, curtailing its meetings, improving the style of its internal documents and circulars, and making fieldwork surveys more efficient.

Specific plans include broadcasting trials live on the Internet, putting referee documents online, forbidding meeting in luxurious hotels, controlling the number of meetings, and receiving inspectors in simple ways.

In a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee on December 5, the newly elected leadership adopted a document making explicit requirements on how Political Bureau members should improve their work style in eight aspects.

The new leadership has pledged to reject extravagance and reduce bureaucratic visits and meetings, in a bid to win trust and support from the people.
