The National Audit Office (NAO) Monday gave details of 30 cases that were resolved by the end of last year, a move experts said is aimed at showing the government's determination to promote nationwide access to anti-corruption information.

A total of 36 officials, together with 214 others, were transferred by the NAO to judiciary and discipline inspection organs for further investigation, while 3.4 billion yuan ($538.6 million) in funds were found to have been involved in violations of economic rules that officials should be directly held responsible for.

The 30 cases involved government departments, State-owned enterprises and financial institutions.

In 2011, authorities nationwide had audited 26,000 leading officials at various levels, an increase of 1,300 people compared with last year. The leading officials include 35 at the ministerial level, according to a statement issued at a national auditing work conference on Sunday.

"China will strengthen special audits on social security funds, construction of affordable housing projects and adjustments of the planning of primary and middle schools in rural areas," said Liu Jiayi, the head of the NAO.

More than 400,000 leading officials have been audited since the economic accountability audit system was introduced in 1999, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
