Six measures outlined

A communique was issued following the sixth plenary session of CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection held in Beijing from January 5-6.

The communique says that in 2006, the Party will take six concrete measures to build a mechanism on punishing and preventing corruption, to eliminate the soil and hotbed for corruption.

First, Party discipline inspection commissions at all levels should enhance their inspection and supervision on major issues in national development, such as enhancing the macro-economic regulation, handling problems relating to agriculture, rural areasand the farmers, improving the capacity of independent innovations,saving energy and resources, and protecting the environment.

Second, the Party will firmly fight outstanding problems that harm public interests, including the illegal charge of school fees,the overpricing of medicines, the delay of salary payment to rural migrant workers, and bribery in commercial activities.

Third, more anti-corruption education work will be carried out among grassroots officials, while the procedure of selecting officials for promotion will be more strict.

Fourth, discipline inspection departments at all levels should play a leading role in studying and implementing the Party constitution,resolutely curb any practice that goes against the constitution, and properly handle the relations between punishing and preventing corruption. Violators of Party discipline and those abusing power for personal gains will receive severe punishment.

Meanwhile, inspection and supervision should be strengthened infields like finance, engineering projects, land management, mine exploring, and governmental procurement. Discipline inspection will focus more on cases gravely harming public interests, especially on cases concerning production safety, food and medicine safety, environmental protection and social stability. International anti-corruption cooperation will also be strengthened.

Fifth, administrations at all levels will further reform their working mechanism in personnel selection, justice, administrative examination and approval, fiscal management and taxation and otherareas, so as to check corruption from the roots.

Sixth, the Party will enhance its inspection over financial institutions and state-owned enterprises, and better supervise over the county-level administrations.

The communique says the meeting demands discipline inspection commissions at all levels fulfill their duty and responsibility endowed by the Party constitution, and self-consciously receive the supervision by the public.

The meeting called on all party members and the entire Chinese people to make joint efforts for the establishment of a "harmonious socialist society" and the full implementation of the "scientific concept of development."
