The 17th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China (CPC) opened its sixth plenary session here Sunday to arrange anti-corruption work for 2011.
The CCDI meeting will discuss how to improve anti-corruption work and address problems the public complained most about, officials with the CCDI told Xinhua.
The CPC considers anti-graft work an important part of China's development in the 12th Five-Year-Plan period (2011-2015) and crucial for the lifeline and development of the Party, which was founded 90 years ago and came to power in 1949, an official said.
The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee said in a statement on Dec. 28 that fighting corruption was still a tough task and the situation remained serious as new problems and challenges emerged.
The CCDI session, to be concluded on Tuesday, is expected to have a large influence on what actions the CPC will take to curb and prevent corruption.
