Discipline body expands investigative reach, paper says

The Communist Party’s Central Disciplinary Committee will set up supervision teams at various local, ministerial and state-owned enterprise levels to carry out disciplinary action, the 21st Century Business Herald reported Thursday. The announcement is in response to President Xi Jinping’s {習近平} call during the Central Committee’s plenary session for deeper reform. But the CDC’s resources will be stretched. It now investigates about 20 work units a year but it will have to cover nearly 300 units; 98 central government units; 32 provinces, directly controlled municipalities and autonomous regions; 113 state-owned firms; and 31 vice-ministerial schools, the report said.
