An anti-graft law enforcement network that promotes cooperation in crackdown on corruption, bribery, money laundering and illegal trade among the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies has started operation, according to statement from the disciplinary watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
The network consists of anti-corruption and law enforcement personnel from the APEC member economies. It includes a chairman, liaison personnel and a secretariat, the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement on its website on Saturday.
The network will establish a regular contact mechanism to facilitate information sharing and build up trust among anti-corruption and law enforcement authorities in the region, according to the statement.
The network will also build an anti-graft law enforcement cooperation mechanism to investigate corruption, bribery, money laundering and illegal trade crimes, it said.
It will also gather and share experiences in anti-graft areas through seminars and exchanges.
The network's Chinese liaison personnel come from judicial, procuratorate, public security, disciplinary and bank regulating authorities, according to the statement.
