Will focus on solicitation by foreign casinos and corrupt government officials.

China officials have pledged to shut down attempts by foreign casinos to lure its people abroad to gamble, Reuters reports.

"Some foreign countries see our nation as an enormous market, and we have investigated a series of cases," Hua Jingfeng, a deputy bureau chief at the Ministry of Public Security said.

"A fair number of neighbouring countries have casinos, and they have set up offices in China to attract and drum up interest from Chinese citizens to go abroad and gamble. This will also be an area that we will crack down on."

Police and government officials will also be under scrutiny, Hua said, indicating a small number who are guilty of collusion in covering up illegal activities concerning gambling.
