BEIJING, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- China has made remarkable achievements in its fight against corruption, offering experience for many countries, researchers from various countries have said on Monday to mark the International Anti-Corruption Day.

Jose Robaina, a researcher at Cuba's International Policy Research Center, said China has been making unprecedented efforts in the fight against corruption since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012.

China has taken a long-term approach to tackling corruption and has achieved remarkable results in its campaign, garnering trust from the Chinese people and providing inspiration for many Latin American countries, the scholar said.

Alexei Mukhin, director general of the Center for Political Information, a Moscow-based think tank, said China has tailored its system of governance to tackle corruption. The measures the government has taken demonstrate its firm will to root out corruption in the country.

Jon Taylor, chair of the Department of Political Science and Geography at the US University of Texas at San Antonio, said the CPC's anti-corruption measures during the past five years have delivered real benefits to both China's economy and its people.

"The relentless pursuit and prosecution of 'tigers and flies' wherever they may be -- including officials who have fled to the US -- has been quite popular with the Chinese people," he added.

Gerishon Ikiara, an economics lecturer at the University of Nairobi and former Kenyan government official, said China's anti-corruption measures indicate that all those caught in corruption-related activities would face the consequences irrespective of the individual status in politics, business or social standing.

Marat Shibutov, a member of Kazakhstan's National Council of Public Trust, said China has achieved remarkable results "by bringing down both tigers and flies," which shows "firm determination of the Chinese government to eradicate corruption."

"As Kazakhstan boosts its anti-corruption drive, China's mechanism and firm resolution to root out corruption have become a role model and provided valuable experience for Kazakhstan," added Shibutov, who is also chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Kazakh branch of non-governmental organization Transparency International.
