The Eight-point Regulation of the Centre (Chinese: 中央八项规定) is a set of regulations stipulated by Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the Communist Party. They were first announced on December 4, 2012, at a meeting of the Politburo of the Communist Party of China. These regulations were aimed at instilling more discipline among party members, and making the party "closer to the masses".[1] In effect, it calls for party members and officials in particular to 'do real work, say real things', and understand the practical situation on the ground. It seeks to tackle the culture of privilege that has permeated Chinese officialdom in the eras of his predecessors.
