Lai Xiaomin charged with bribery, corruption and bigamy

ai Xiaomin, former China Huarong Asset Management board chairman, has been charged with bribery, corruption and bigamy, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate said on Friday.

China Huarong is one of the country’s four largest State-own asset management companies.

It is alleged that Lai exploited various professional positions, including head of the Huarong

corporation and director-general of the banking supervision department of the People’s Bank of China.

While in these positions, it is claimed that he asked for and received significant benefits in exc

hange for “aid”, according to a press release from the SPP, the country’s top prosecuting authority.

It also alleged that Lai was in illegal possession of a large number of public properties, a

nd that he was living as husband and wife with a woman other than his wife, the release said.

Lai, 56, was placed under investigation by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) o

f the Communist Party of China in April last year for “serious violations of disciplinary rules

and laws”, and was expelled from the Party and removed from public office six months later.

The CCDI said he violated political disciplines and State financial policies to blindly expand the c

ompany and operate it in a disorderly manner, resulting in it deviating from its primary tasks and business.

Lai, a Jiangxi province native, started his career at the People’s Bank of China in July 1983, and went on

to hold key positions at the China Banking Regulatory Commission and Beijing Banking Regulatory Bureau.

WASHINGTON — My China Album, a story-sharing event focusing on the frie

ndship between people from China and the United States, was launched on Wednesday at a reception hosted by the Ch

inese embassy celebrating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of China-US diplomatic relations.

The event, co-organized by China Daily, China’s largest English-language ne

wspaper, which has a global audience, encourages Americans to submit photos an

d stories highlighting their most memorable experiences in China, especially their encounters with Chinese peo

ple. The top winner will receive two economy-class, round-trip airline tickets from New York to Beijing.

The exchange of visits between Chinese and American table tennis teams in 1971 and 1972 opened a new chapter in China-US friendly relations and contacts.

On Jan 1, 1979, the two countries officially established diplomatic relations. Since then, people-to-people excha

nges have helped cement a foundation and have played a key role in promoting understanding and mutual trust between the two countries.

We understand that this week’s discussions covered famili

ound on structural issues and look forward to hearing details about any progress that was made,” said Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council.

The Washington-based council has urged both governments to use this month to address their unresolved issues, he said in a statement.

The Chinese delegation said that creating a market environment of fair competition is in line with the general di

rection of China’s reform and opening-up, and therefore China will actively address relevant US concerns.

The two countries have agreed to take effective measures to promote the more b

alanced development of bilateral trade. China will make active efforts to expand im

ports from the US in agriculture, energy, manufacturing and services, which will help the country’s pursuit of high

-quality economic development and meet the people’s demand for a better life, the Chinese delegation said.

It’s clear that changes to the bilateral commercial relationship are underway, but b

ecause the issues are complex, it will take hard work and considerable time to resolve them, Allen said.
