Beijing will set up G20’s first anti-graft center
China is moving to establish the G20’s first anti-graft research center.
The center will provide intelligence support in the hunt for economic fugitives and confiscation of their ill-gotten assets. It will be based at Beijing Normal University and begin operations in a few months.
Dozens of experts and professionals who specialize in graft-related studies from China and other G20 economies will be recruited, according to the Communist Party of China’s Central Commission of Discipline Inspection, the country’s top discipline watchdog.
“The establishment of such a center will lay a solid foundation for studies of cross-border corruption crimes and offer intelligence support to fight corruption globally,” said Cai Wei, a deputy director of the CCDI.
