The fight against formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance is getting better, an official from the country's anti-corruption watchdog said in a news conference on Friday.

 So far, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China dealt with 37,000 cases of violations of the eight-point regulations aimed at practicing austerity among Party members and bringing the Party closer to the people.

The cases involved 49,000 officials, of whom, 34,000 have been given disciplinary punishment, said Wu Yuliang, deputy secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

"The fight against disciplinary violators will continue and we'll increase efforts in the inspection and disclose more cases," Wu said.

"Officials who use public funds to eat, drink, give gifts and travel will become our key target in the crackdown, as well as those who come to private clubs and illegally play golf," he added.
