Announcement of the Fourth Plenary of the Central Disciplinary Inspection Commission (CDIC) of the Party (story in Chinese)

September 27, 2004

Xinhua reports that the CDIC held its fourth plenary meeting since the 16th Party Congress on September 20. The plenary focused on how to strengthen the Party's capacity to govern: the main theme of the CCP meeting last week. As part of this larger effort, the CDIC's role will be to fight corruption, which Party leaders acknowledge to be the key obstacle to the Party's ability to govern effectively and legitimately.
