Since the Chinese government launched its 10th round of anti-graft inspection in July, several positive changes have been made, according to a report from state-run Xinhua News Agency.
The inspection covers 32 central agencies and provincial regions. Several teams were also deployed in regions that were already included in previous inspection rounds.
The Party group of the National Audit Office has already established a tracking system that would supervise any corrections made in response to the instructions of the designated inspectors. It will track all the progress undertaken during the inspection process.
On the other hand, the Party group of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, an advisory body, has already started dissolving companies affiliated with them.
Meanwhile, the Party committee of the Ministry of Public Security has created different mechanisms and measures that would edify its reforms regarding the selection of its officials.
These changes are part of the government's collective effort to crack down on graft and corruption.
In Jiangxi, the provincial Communist Party of China (CPC) committee has launched a series of campaigns that aim to educate its Party members after a top official was imprisoned for corruption.
Su Rong, who is also the former vice chairman of China's top political advisory body, was held accountable by the CPC's Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) for committing serious corruption in Jiangxi where he served as Party chief from 2007 to 2013.
Forty-three prefecture-level officials involved in the high-profile case have been investigated by the inspection team. Su's case serves as an example for fellow officials in Jiangxi and in other local governments as well.
When Chinese President Xi Jinping assumed the country's top position in 2013, he already vowed to fight corruption from top to bottom.
"We must . . . punish every corrupt official and constantly eradicate the soil which breeds corruption. No exception . . . no leniency . . . no one can enjoy absolute power outside of the law," Xi previously remarked as quoted by Xinhua.
Back in 2015, the government's anti-graft inspection has already punished around 300,000 officials.
