BEIJING -- The Communist Party of China (CPC)'s top anti-graft body has highlighted the task of combating corruption that damages people's immediate interests in 2016, according to a communique issued after an anti-graft meeting that ended Thursday.

The document was adopted at the three-day sixth plenary session of the 18th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC.

It required the disciplinary watchdogs to integrate the concepts of innovation, coordination, green development, opening up and sharing with their work to ensure it is implemented. These concepts were put forward at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee in October.

The document stressed the disciplinary watchdogs must adhere to the task of comprehensively and strictly governing the Party, which is part of the "Four comprehensives" -- the strategic objectives outlined in the blueprint for China's future.

It said anti-graft bodies nationwide must loyally perform their duties laid out in the Party Constitution and strengthen intra-party supervision in addition to enhancing Party rules.

Efforts must also be made to prevent new corruption cases from emerging and build a team of disciplinary inspectors and supervisors who are loyal, clean and responsible to constantly make progress in the anti-corruption campaign and the drive to build a clean government.
