The chief of the ruling Party's top discipline watchdog has vowed to strengthen supervision of officials.

He made the pledge while leading a seminar in which scholars gave their suggestions on how to fight corruption.

Wang is one of the seven newly elected members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
