Shanghai: China State Shipbuilding Corporation, the China Shipping Group and oil giant Sinopec are among 13 state-owned groups that will be subject to anti-corruption inspections by China’s government.
Xi Jinping, China’s president and Communist Party chief, approved a third round of top-level disciplinary inspections last week.
The president will be personally reviewing every inspection document, listening to every results briefing and delivering a key speech that will form the foundation of the next round of inspections, reports in the Chinese press say.
The companies have been selected in order to provide a cross-section of Chinese industry. As a time-saving measure, only specific aspects of the businesses will be probed.
The other organisations that will be targeted are: the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Environmental Protection, China Association for Science and Technology, All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, China Radio International, China Southern Airlines, China Unicom, the power generator China Huadian Corporation, Dongfeng Motor, and mining and energy Shenhua Group.
