BEIJING, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- China will implement a five-year plan for eliminating corruption after the upcoming national congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), top official He Guoqiang said on Tuesday.
He, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the CPC, expressed readiness to improve anti-corruption efforts, describing the improvements as a "dynamic and long-term strategic project."
The 18th CPC National Congress will find new ways to prevent corruption both now and in the future, said He, who is also head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
The spirit of the 18th CPC National Congress should be fully implemented in the formation of the next five-year plan to fight corruption, He said.
He said China has always paid great attention to fighting corruption and creating a clean government, adding that the country has created its own unique methods to combat corruption.
A sound system for punishing and curbing corruption is an important guarantee for the nation's development, He said.
The formation of the new five-year plan should be based on the results of the previous plan, as well as past experience, He said.
He urged discipline officials to prioritize solving problems that are widely faced by the public and find new ways to suppress and prevent corruption.
