China's anti-corruption chief, He Guoqiang, on Wednesday called on relevant parties to step up their fight against corruption by drawing on experience from organizing the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai and the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou.

He, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau and head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, made the remarks at a meeting devoted to discussing anti-graft experience in organizing the events.

No major cases concerning embezzlement or other violations of the law in regards to the organization of the events have emerged during or since the events took place, He said.

Senior Chinese leaders, including President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao, have also asked relevant parties to examine the experience China has had in organizing these events and use it as a foundation for the creation of a long-term anti-corruption mechanism.

Intense and comprehensive supervision of the organization processes for these two events ensured that all work was done in an orderly and transparent manner, He Guoqiang said at the meeting.

Last year's Shanghai World Expo and Asian Games lasted for a great deal of time and involved many construction projects, enormous capital input and a large number of people, he said.

China'e experience in organizing these large-scale events should be used in other industries and areas, with new regulations and procedures created in order to boost the country's anti-corruption efforts, he said.
