Asymptotically.

  On the vast Inner Mongolian plateau, open-pit coal mines such as Ulan Manlailiang that have been reclaimed and green are increasing with the deepening of special rectification in the field of coal resources.

  Inner Mongolia is rich in coal resources, with wide distribution, large reserves and easy development.

With the rapid development of the coal economy, violations of regulations and laws in the field of coal resources have also bred and spread. Collusion of official coal and excessive mining and digging problems have become prominent, destroying the natural ecology and polluting the political ecology.

Since February last year, the discipline inspection and supervision agencies at all levels in the autonomous region have focused on outstanding problems in the field of coal resources, carried out special rectification, reshaped the positive political ecology, and restored the natural ecology of green mountains and green waters.

Investigate 20 years and severely punish the use of coal resources for corruption

  In the special rectification, Inner Mongolia's discipline inspection and supervision organs have organized and "looked back" on the clues of coal-related issues since 2000, and conducted back-checks on the corruption, work style, and responsibility issues behind it.

With the deepening of the investigation over the past 20 years, some clues about power and money transactions and corruption have been discovered: "relying on coal to eat coal", "official coal collusion" and other power and money transactions have been exposed, "coal tigers" have emerged, and a large number of violations of discipline and laws have been revealed. Be severely dealt with.

  Ordos, which has one-third of the coal resources in the autonomous region, has proven reserves accounting for nearly one-sixth of the country, and has become the focus of this special rectification.

  Liu Guihua, the former deputy director of the Standing Committee of the Ordos Municipal People's Congress, transferred the entire coal mine to individuals in the form of "debt transfer" during the transformation of a state-owned coal mine, causing huge losses to the country.

Guo Chengxin, the former party secretary and director of the city's coal bureau, had the power to approve local coal projects for 8 years, and was investigated 5 years and 3 months after his retirement.

Wang Jun, former party secretary and director of the Zhungeer Banner Energy Bureau, was sentenced to ten years in prison and fined 800,000 yuan for accepting 8.8 million yuan in bribes.


  Up to now, the discipline inspection and supervision organs at all levels in the autonomous region have registered a total of 960 coal-related corruption cases with 676 cases, 663 party disciplinary and government sanctions, 834 people organized and handled, and 92 people transferred to judicial organs.

Since the special rectification, 12 cadres at the department and department level have voluntarily surrendered, and the old abuses of "relying on coal to eat coal" have gradually been eliminated.

  At the same time, the discipline inspection and supervision agencies of the autonomous region have promoted the recovery of state-owned assets losses in accordance with regulations and laws, urged the natural resources departments to recover the proceeds from the transfer of mining rights, and urged the public, procuratorate, and taxation departments to increase efforts to recover stolen goods and recover damages to maximize recovery and recovery of coal-related assets. Various losses caused by violations of laws and regulations in the field.

Up to now, the autonomous region has recovered 39.327 billion yuan in economic losses.

Investigate hundreds of coal-related problems and regularly check coal-related matters

  In response to problems such as low political standing, unserious political life, and unhealthy political ecology as reflected in coal-related corruption, Inner Mongolia insists on putting political discipline and rules in the forefront, standing up, tightening, and implementing them in place, with strong political supervision. Deep-seated problems affecting and destroying the political ecology are thoroughly investigated and comprehensively corrected.

  According to statistics, since the special rectification, Inner Mongolia has investigated and dealt with hundreds of serious political and ecological problems such as the use of coal resources for climbing and antenna installation.

  "After centralized rectification, the coal-related corruption problems in our city have been comprehensively rectified, and the development environment of coal resources has been significantly improved." said Gao Lingyun, a member of the party group and deputy director of the Ordos Energy Bureau.

  Inner Mongolia insisted on opening the door for rectification, promptly publicizing supervision and reporting methods, holding press conferences, taking the initiative to respond to the concerns of the masses, accepting social supervision, and the intensive "N burst" of fallen officials has attracted attention from all walks of life, allowing the masses to see tangible results.

  In order to reshape the relationship between government and business and clarify the boundaries of power, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision of the Autonomous Region has included more than 1.4 million cadres related to coal matters in the database and checked and compared them on a regular basis.

"All coal-related cadres have a case to investigate. As long as they make improper profits in the field of coal resources, they will be held accountable." The relevant person in charge of the Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Autonomous Region said.

Promote reform and governance with cases, promote both symptoms and root causes, ecological remodel

  We will comprehensively clean up the coal resources policies and regulations that have been promulgated by various departments at all levels in the autonomous region since 2000, make overall plans for reforms, reforms and abolishment, improve systems and mechanisms, and eliminate power rent-seeking space.

At present, 863 policy and regulation documents have been abolished or declared invalid; 2,542 enforcement documents with problems have all been disposed of.

  Focusing on prominent problems such as extensive and chaotic management in the coal-related field, in-depth search for system loopholes, procedural flaws, and implementation shortcomings behind the problems, research and formulation of 106 regulatory documents, 99 of which have been issued so far.


  The coal industry is a pillar industry in Inner Mongolia.

Special rectification requires not only aggressive medicine to eliminate malaria and root causes of corruption, but also prudent and prudent, stabilizing industry roots, and creating a good development environment.

  In conjunction with the implementation of the "14th Five-Year Plan", the Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Autonomous Region designated this year as the "Year of Promoting Reform and Governance by Cases", digging into the underlying reasons behind the cases, promoting both symptoms and root causes, anti-corruption and promoting development.

While severely punishing coal-related corruption, we simultaneously supervise and urge coal-related regions, departments, and enterprises to promote the reform of the coal resource approval system, improve the approval list management system around property rights transactions, resource allocation, administrative approval, and production supervision, plug system loopholes, and promote The coal industry has developed in an orderly and healthy manner.

In 2020, coal production in Inner Mongolia will exceed 1 billion tons, stabilizing at a historically high level, effectively guaranteeing the national coal supply.

  Coal-related corruption has a long time span, complex causes, and a wide range of areas. It will take a long time to completely cure it.

  "We comprehensively study and judge enterprise-related issues, prevent the'one size fits all' problem handling and cause industry risks, help enterprises remove historical burdens, and stimulate the vitality of market entities." Liu Qifan, member of the Standing Committee of the Autonomous Region Party Committee, Secretary of the Disciplinary Committee, and Director of the Supervisory Committee, introduced that this year's special rectification will be transferred to Normal governance, while maintaining a high-pressure situation of punishing corruption, through the use of case-based reforms, inspections and rectifications, special inspections, etc., to urge enterprises in coal-related areas to conduct self-inspection, self-correction, and centralized rectification to promote green development and deep processing. Work harder to achieve high-quality development.
