China's graft inspection to target state-owned groups

BEIJING -- Companies and public service groups supervised by the Communist Party of China and government departments will face a new round of top-level disciplinary inspections amid China's anti-corruption drive.

"Over the past two years, central inspection teams have covered Party and government departments at the provincial level. Next, we will focus on organizations supervised by central authorities," Wang Ying, a senior official with the central inspection team, said Friday in an online interview.

Anti-graft measures set by the CPC and disciplinary inspections by superior authorities have played a great role in uncovering and correcting misconducts since the new leadership was inaugurated in 2012.

Wang refused to disclose the time and duration of the upcoming inspections, but said certain Party and government departments would be rechecked.

In addition to local Party and government units, the previous four rounds of central inspections also covered seven public service institutes, six state-owned enterprises and two universities.

Central inspections were responsible for the downfall of corrupt officials, including Su Rong, former vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the country's top political advisory body.
