In particular, the possibility of organizing additional training and education activities for public officials and professional from China was discussed.

The delegation was led by Mr. Ou Yaping, Secretary General of the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (the Central Party School) and the China National Academy of Governance.

China acceded to the Agreement for the Establishment of IACA as an International Organization in September 2014 and has been strongly supporting the organization ever since, including through the provision of voluntary financial contributions. Furthermore, China hosted the fourth IACA Regional Summer Academy, a programme for anti-corruption and compliance professionals from East and Southeast Asia that took place in Beijing in September 2018. Also, IACA developed and delivered a tailor-made training programme for Chinese government officials in June 2018.
