When China changes the world

Key central departments yesterday pledged to crack down on bribe-taking by government officials.


The anti-bribery campaign will change the way many companies and individuals do business, said Jing Yunchuan, a lawyer at Beijing-based Gaotong Law Service.


Many cases of commercial bribery in the industry have been exposed recently, China Daily reported Friday.


In Central China's Hunan Province, Wang Daosheng, former deputy secretary-general of the provincial government, was arrested for helping a private company buy a local State-owned medicine company for a low price.


The tough business environment has also lured some foreign companies into offering bribes.


A Tianjin-based subsidiary of Diagnostic Products Co Ltd was recently fined US$4.8 million by the US Department of Justice for bribing doctors in China's State-owned hospitals for buying its medical equipment and services last year.


Also, bribe-taking is an offence applicable only to civil servants, but sometimes it is family members or friends taking the bribes. "So I suggest that the law be revised to rectify the situation," Jing said.
