China's anti-corruption chief, He Guoqiang, on Friday ordered enhanced supervision on the implementation of policies concerning the country's initiative to adjust its economic growth pattern so as to root out corruption from the source.

He, head of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China (CPC), said a leading group has been set up at the central level to direct inspection and supervision to see whether relevant economic growth mode adjustment policies are duly implemented.

The group, headed by CCDI deputy secretary He Yong, consists of heads or vice heads of ten government departments in charge of the overall economic planning, science and technology, industry and information, supervision, finance, land and resources, environmental protection, housing, and water resources. The group's office will be in the Ministry of Supervision.

Addressing a national audio-video conference on Friday, He Guoqiang,also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, stressed the significance of conducting such supervision and inspection as they are important measures to ensure implementation of major government policies for China's development in the next five years and to prevent and eradicate corruption from its source.

The supervision will focus on the implementation of major measures set down in the blueprint for China's development in the next five years, moves to tame inflation, and policies to accelerate the development of the nation's water conservancy and promote the sustainable use of water resources, he said.

Further, policies to fund public housing, major technology and science projects, measures to save energy and protect environment, as well as conservation of arable land also top the agenda, according to He.

He asked local authorities and relevant departments to identify problems, rectify and improve their work, and work to establish a long-term effective mechanism to guarantee the implementation of the policies on transformation of economic growth pattern.
