More than 50 foreign anti-corruption specialists visited Beijing's top procuratorate on Tuesday, sharing their experiences enhancing international talks.

The experts, also members of the International Association of Anti-corruption Authorities, came to Beijing on Monday, and the visit was one of the activities of a seminar held by the institution.

The experts arrived at the Beijing Municipal People's Procuratorate at about 10 am Monday and visited the authority's duty crime investigation center and anti-corruption exhibition.

Eduardo Vetere, vice-president of the association, told China Daily after the visit that the capital's prosecuting authority is professional and spoke highly of its clear classification of departments.

Such visits could improve understanding among anti-corruption experts from different countries and make it easier for the participants to reach agreements on international cooperation, he said.

China, as one of first batch of countries that signed the international convention on anti-corruption, has made achievements on cracking down on graft in recent years, he said, adding that the seminar will also enhance the nation’s confidence to go on similar campaigns.

He said most foreign participants are from developing countries.

"After all, prevention is much better than a crackdown, and the seminar also provides a platform for the participants to work together and share with each other," Vetere added.

Chi Qiang, chief procurator of Beijing's top prosecuting authority, said China has learned from developed countries' anti-corruption efforts.

"The international communication also reflects that we attach importance to the anti-corruption efforts, hoping to reduce graft crimes from root," he added.
