The head of China’s top graft-fighting agency is spearheading a pilot program to consolidate the country’s anti-corruption agencies in an apparent effort to better coordinate their work and create a body similar to Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).
Wang Qishan recently finished a nine-day mission to Shanxi and Zhejiang provinces and to Beijing to launch the program on a trial basis, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.
