WUHAN - A senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official called for institutional innovation in carrying out anti-corruption work.

Speaking at a symposium with local officials during his two-day tour in central China's Hubei, which started on Friday, Wang Qishan, secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, urged efforts to implement the decision on comprehensively deepening reform.

The decision, which was approved by the CPC Central Committee at the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, urged systems to punish and prevent corruption and called for institutional innovation and the building of a system to guarantee anti-corruption work.

Reform is a long-term task and cannot be finished overnight, and a timetable and roadmap for deepening reforms should be worked out on the basis of reality in the country, Wang said.

Discipline inspection is a very important part of the state's governance system, Wang said, adding that discipline watchdogs at all levels should reform the anti-corruption mechanism and exert their roles in the modernization of the country's governance system and capabilities.

More efforts should be made to accredit disciplinary inspection agencies to the Party and government organs at the central level, Wang noted.

Remarkable progress has been made in fighting corruption in the past year by the new leadership, Wang said, urging discipline watchdogs across the nation and their officials to shoulder the responsibility and promote the construction of a clean Party.
