President of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) Police General Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit on 18 June 2021 held a discussion with Mr. Fu Kui, Vice Chairman of the National Supervision Commission (NSC) of China.

The discussion, which took place through a teleconference at the NACC Headquarters in Nonthaburi, touched on the issue of international anti-corruption cooperation. NSC is China’s top anti-graft watchdog and NACC is the main agency in Thailand responsible for the task of fighting corruption.

During the discussion, both sides shared their views on and experiences of anti-corruption activities. Thailand and China are members of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). They stressed the importance of promoting international cooperation in anti-corruption efforts.

Thailand is an active player in the South East Asia Parties Against Corruption (SEA-PAC), a network comprising 10 anti-corruption agencies that, among other cooperative efforts, plays a leading role in facilitating the exchanges of best practices and experiences on implementing the UNCAC.

Both Thailand and China also discussed bilateral cooperation in handling international corruption cases, seeking the restitution of property, exchanging information, and organizing anti-corruption training. China expressed its support for Thailand to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings in 2022.
