The chief accountant at the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said the body should monitor accounting standards to prevent listed companies from manipulating their earnings, state media reported. Zhou Huizhong said a number of public companies have been discovered counting gains from corporate restructuring as profits.

He added that the CSRC would collaborate with the Ministry of Finance to clamp down on accounting misconduct by listed companies.
