Chinese State Councilor Liu Yandong, seen right, has asked universities and colleges to make further anti-corruption efforts and promote the scientific development of the country’s higher education.
Liu, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, told a working conference that with the rapid development of universities, the anti-corruption task in the higher educational field had become more arduous.
Statistics from the CPC’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection showed that 58% of corruption cases which occurred in universities were found in infrastructure construction, purchasing and financing departments.
In recent years, China’s educational institutions have seen a rise in the number of bribery and other scandals.
Corruption found in universities has accounted for one fourth of the total cases uncovered in the educational field, according to the discipline authority.
