Taipei - Recently Nanjing held an exhibit to display the results of an investigation that resulted in the arrest of 486 corrupt officials in the last three years. The exhibit showed that a corrupt official was caught almost every two days.

The Eastern Daily reported that these 486 officials were employed in influential fields such as real estate, medicine, government-owned enterprise, law enforcement, labor management, and provincial planning.

An expert analysis report regarding the source of this corruption stated that the government lacks monitoring mechanisms and control over department directors. Governmental micro-management of the economy, the monopolization of investment, and the lack of responsibility and motivation to serve people among government officials were also cited as contributing factors to the corruption.
