BEIJING - Despite persistent campaigns and tough penalties in recent years, corruption in infrastructure projects is still pervasive, China's anti-graft agencies have warned.

According to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China, the country's key anti-graft agency, over the first eight months of this year, about 6,800 officials have been prosecuted for corruption in infrastructure projects across the country.

And prosecutors uncovered graft cases in this sector involving more than 2.99 billion yuan ($468 million) during a nationwide campaign from Sept 2009 to March this year, according to the Ministry of Supervision.
