World learns lessons from China’s anti-graft campaign
Jan. 16, 2018 -- Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012, the CPC's anti-corruption drive has delivered remarkable achievements and won international applauds, which presents Chinese wisdom to the international anti-corruption efforts.
The second plenary session of the 19th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC Friday stressed more anti-corruption efforts to “fundamentally improve the political ecosystem of the Party”.
According to the CCDI, altogether 527,000 officials including 58 provincial and above level leaders were punished for corruption and violating the Party’s code of conduct in 2017.
An Expert from Ateneo De Manila University in Philippines said China’s success in international hunting of corrupt officials has shown its firm resolution to crack down on corruption through legal means.
The stringent supervisory system and systematical policies issued by the CPC inside the party and national departments play an important role in preventing and combating corruption, said Marcelo Orestes De Pierro, head of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) in Argentina.
Last November, the program of international cooperation on anti-corruption proposed by China was written into the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).
The ruling party in Spain also learned from China to fight inner-party corruption and gather public support by establishing a supervisory institution.
The CPC has always been committed to self-examination and corruption crackdown, which sets a good example for other political parties in the world, said Evandro Carvalho, professor of international law.
