Yingkou Port president investigated for corruption

Yingkou Port president investigated for corruption
China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCID) has opened an investigation on Gao Baoyu, president of Yingkou Port Group, for allegations of corruption.

In a brief statement issued last Friday, CCID said Gao is investigated for “serious violation of the law”, and he is assisting in the investigation.

Yingkou Port said its vice president has taken over Gao’s duties temporarily.

Yingkou port is an international port in northeast China with container throughput of around 250,000 teu a year.

Beijing is taking a tough stance on corruption and there have already been several cases of corruption among shipping executives and investigations into state-owned shipping firms.

Recently, the CCID opened its probe into China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC), China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and China Shipping Group.
