CPC discipline inspector emphasizes fighting corruption at its source

Wu Guanzheng, Secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, emphasizes the importance of fighting corruption at its source in an article to be published Saturday.

"The crackdown on corruption cases has to be maintained, but efforts also need to be made to build an effective corruption prevention and control mechanism," says Wu, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

In his article in the 18th issue of Qiushi, a CPC Central Committee magazine, Wu says anti-corruption efforts should be made in political, economic, cultural and social fields.

In the political field, efforts should be made to regulate the activities of leading cadres and reinforce checks on the use of power.

In the economic field, opportunities to use power for personal gain should be gradually eliminated and the crackdown on commercial bribery should be conscientiously pursued.

In the cultural field, a social atmosphere that values honesty and decency, and in which corruption is regarded as shameful, needs to be fostered.

In the social field, unhealthy tendencies that harm people's interests need to be opposed and corrected and more opportunities provided for people to take part in anti-corruption efforts.
