In essence, the sessions dealt with economic and political reforms and China’s development programmes. Considering the 18th CPC Central Committee’s Third Plenary, the visit was especially concerned with anti-corruption measures in China. The delegation was taking part in meetings at the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National People's Congress. After four days in Beijing, the group visited the southern province of Jiangsu for three days. The Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection arranged field visits of community-level administrative and anti-corruption efforts in Jiangsu Province, including Nanjing and Suzhou municipality.
