Expert questions fairness of dismissing civil servants for violations
Civil servants in Northwest China's Shaanxi Province could be removed from their posts for violating local family planning regulation Femme Adidas NMD XR4 Suede Rose Blanche Pas Cher , says a new draft regulation.
According to the draft, civil servants will be reduced to a lower rank or removed from their posts if they violate local family planning regulations, which only allow couples to have a second child under specific conditions - including a disability in the first child - the Xi'an Evening News reported Thursday.
It said that those who refuse to pay "social maintenance fees" - fines paid by violators of family planning policy - or faked their records to get approval for having more than one child will be removed from their posts.
In particular, civil servants with one child or those eligible to have two children could be fired if they give birth to two or more children.
"This is a draft amendment, and we will continue revising it up until the final version is unveiled in November," a local official surnamed Han told the Global Times.
According to the Law on Population and Family Planning that took effect in 2002, Chinese civil servants can be fined and also face administrative sanctions, or even dismissal, for breaching the family planning policy. The law allows provincial regions to set their own conditions for a second child.
"It is inappropriate to fire civil servants for violation of family planning policy. It is also unfair to civil servants," argued Li Jianmin, a professor at the Population Development Research Institute of Nankai University.
Li suggested the regulation be adjusted along with changes in China's population, especially after the central government began to loosen family planning policy last year to allow couples to have two children if one of them is an only child.
Shaanxi began implementing the new policy on March 1, 2014.
"Some said that the new policy seems to be more relaxed than before. However, judging from the local government's other policies, which encouraged single child, it failed to realize how serious the population problems they face now are," Huang Wenzheng, a former Harvard University research fellow, told the Global Times.
Couples who have only one child will be given subsidies of at least 30 yuan ($4.8) per month, with the amount raised as general incomes rise, the draft reads.
Shaanxi offered rewards of at least 4,000 yuan to couples who meet the requirements for having two children, but who voluntarily forego a second child, local media reported in July 2014.

COPENHAGEN, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Novozymes, the world's largest producer of industrial enzymes, reported on Friday better-than-expected financial results for the first half of 2017.
"Overall, the first half was good, and better than expected," said Peder Holk Nielsen, president and CEO of Novozymes, in a statement.
"We had growth in the large segments and delivered 3 percent organic sales growth with a strong EBIT margin, excluding one-offs," Nielsen said.
According to the interim financial report, earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) for the first six months of 2017 stood at 1.973 billion Danish kroner, up 3 percent from 1.911 billion kroner year-on-year.
Sales rose 3 percent to 7.278 billion kroner in the first half of 2017 as compared to the same period last year.
In the first half, the company's household care enzymes grew by 3 percent to stand at 2.397 billion kroner, contributing 33 percent of total sales.
Novozymes maintained its full-year expectations for organic growth with sales and net profit to grow between 2 and 5 percent, while EBIT margin projected at around 28 percent.
However, the outlook for sales and EBIT growth in Danish kroner have been adjusted to 1 to 4 percent as against a previous forecast of 3 to 6 percent, due to "a weaker currency environment." (1 U.S. dollar = 6.33 Danish kroner)

BEIJING, July？21 (Xinhuanet) -- Shandong tire producer expands its overseas reach with UK ventures, reports Meng Jing.
You Xuezhong, chairman of the board of Shandong Yongtai Chemical Group, a leading private tire producer in China, brought his entire family to the United Kingdom this summer.
It seemed like a cozy family trip with even You's grandchild being on board, but the 63-year-old businessman certainly had much more on his mind than spending some quality time with his family.
During the trip to the UK in mid-June, You struck a deal to acquire the Coventry-based automotive manufacturer UYT Ltd for 28 million pound ($43.59 million).
The acquisition marks Yongtai's second major move in the UK. In July 2013, the tire producer, based in Dongying, a city in East China's Shandong province, acquired a 70 percent stake in Covpress Ltd, a Coventry-based pressed materials company that presses steel into car-body parts.
UYT, which is going to serve as an assembly plant for the car parts pressed by Covpress, is seen by Yongtai as part of an important move to extend the industrial chain of its auto component business as assembled products can be sold at much higher prices than pure components.
With the acquisition of UYT, Yongtai has also inched closer to its goal of being a flagship in the auto components industry.
