Foreign visitors tour CPC discipline watchdog offices


11:40, May 25, 2013

BEIJING, May 24 (Xinhua) -- Fourteen foreign guests were invited to the offices of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on Friday.

Politicians, researchers from think tanks and senior journalists from Asian, African, European and American countries were guests, a CCDI statement said.

During the two-hour visit, the guests toured the agency's offices and discussed with senior CCDI officials about China's anti-corruption systems, the statement said.

Since the 18th CPC National Congress in November, China has stepped up efforts in fighting corruption.

Several senior officials have been investigated, such as Liu Tienan, former deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, and Li Chuncheng, former vice-secretary of the CPC committee of Sichuan Province.

The CPC is also tightening intra-Party supervision by regularly sending inspectors to central and local governments, state-owned enterprises and universities.

Last time the CCDI received foreign visitors was in April 2011, when about 50 diplomats from more than 40 countries toured CCDI offices.

According to the statement, the CCDI has had exchanges with anti-corruption agencies in more than 80 countries and regions.

China joined the United Nations Convention against Corruption in 2005 and is preparing for a review of the implementation of the convention, the statement said.
