Beijing: Chinese officials undergo intensive tutorials about the evils of corruption and as many as 700,000 are given anti-corruption lessons each year, Xinhua reported Thursday.

This education is given through lectures, case studies and visits to historic areas, as well as attendance at court trials and talks with people who have been imprisoned for corruption.

The country presently has 56 provincial-level anti-corruption education centres and 350 prefecture-level centres nationwide, according to a statement from the Communist Party of China (CPC).

China's central commission for discipline inspection (CCDI) and the Ministry of Supervision (MOS) designated the first group of 50 national education centres to establish a culture of integrity and a clean government in 2010.
