Politburo Holds Seminar on Handling Corruption
(Beijing) – The Politburo held a seminar on April 19 intended to draw lessons about handling corruption from the country's history.
This is the fifth seminar that has been held by the Communist Party's 25-member Politburo since it was formed late last year and the first to touch on graft.
Xinhua reported that the party's general secretary, Xi Jinping, said at the
seminar that the party "should improve its leadership and governance capacity,
while enhancing its resistance to corruption and risks.
Xi also said the party must "strengthen law enforcement in fighting against corruption." He suggested officials study typical cases while pushing forward reforms in areas where graft has been frequently uncovered.
