Shanghai Cuts Fees to Striking Truckers

Officials in Shanghai say they are cutting some fees that sparked trucker protests and disrupted the flow of goods through China's busiest port.

A city spokesman told the official Xinhua news agency Saturday that the city would lower some fees and remove others that had been imposed without prior notice.

Truck drivers protested for three days, beginning Wednesday, at Shanghai port facilities against rising fuel prices they said were eating away at their profits.

The spokesman told Xinhua that port operations at Shanghai were normal Saturday.

Chinese leaders have said that taming inflation is a priority this year.

Communist Party members fear that rising prices could spread unrest, which would be a threat to China's one-party system.
