China will continue its campaign to fight against corruption in government-led construction projects and punish those officials who are proven to have inappropriately intervened in the bidding process of the construction projects, said a national meeting on rectifying key problems in the country's construction sector.

That was learned from a statement released Wednesday after the conclusion of the meeting convened earlier this week in north China's port city of Tianjin.

A leading group for dealing with irregularities in the construction sector said in the statement that the country would also strengthen its efforts to handle cases concerning violation of disciplines and regulations in the sector.

Key areas listed for specific checks this year include projects involving land and resources, transport, railways, water resources, housing and urban-rural construction.

Since 2009 the country has carried out a nationwide campaign to crack down on corruption in government-led construction projects, with about 17,200 cases investigated and 11,273 officials punished to date.

"We will severely punish officials who act inappropriately, collude with businesses, or abuse their power for personal gains," said the leading group in the statement.

China's Supervision Minister Ma Wen, who serves as deputy head of the leading group, addressed the meeting held in Tianjin on Monday and Tuesday.
