Chinese suspend (some) newspaper subsidies

November 25th, 2003 | by aobaoill |

From Interworld Radio:

Nearly 700 government-funded Chinese newspapers have been suspended. The move is part of a huge ongoing shake-up of the country’s press designed to accompany moves towards a free-market economy. There will now be a limit on the number of publications provincial and regional authorities can support. Chinese citizens will also make savings, as they will no longer have to pay mandatory subscriptions to the newspapers.
