BEIJING - Army disciplinary inspectors have identified problems in Beijing and Jinan military area commands, the flagship newspaper of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) reported on Tuesday.

A PLA Daily article said Xu Qiliang, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), held a meeting on Friday, hearing reports from inspection teams.

Disciplinary teams were sent to Beijing and Jinan military area commands from Dec. 10 to March 13. It was the first round of inspections sent by the CMC.

Focusing on anti-graft work, inspectors found issues concerning cadres' self-discipline, construction projects, land transfers, low-income housing projects and medical systems among other areas.

The disciplinary organ of the CMC has told related departments to rectify problems.

At the meeting, Xu said the army's disciplinary inspection system should be strengthened as it is of strategic importance for the building of the army.

Xu said Party committees of large units and their members should be the focus of inspection work, and more effort is needed to tackle corruption in areas where it is prone.
