Legal reforms to support Myanmar's anti-corruption battle.  Following the appointment of a new Anti-Corruption Commission in November, attention is turning to the need for legal reform to ensure the commission's independence and protect whistleblowers.

Hein Ko Soe/Frontier Myanmar:

Chinese government develops big data to cast wider corruption net.  In an interview with the website of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), Mei Hong, the vice president of the Beijing Institute of Technology and a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, said that the application of big data as a tool for anti-corruption has a promising future. 

Deng Xiaoci/Global Times:

Foreign Investors Will Take Heart in Vietnam's Anti-Graft Crackdown.  Foreign investors in Vietnam will welcome a fairer, more predictable set of business practices as the government pursues the heads of local firms over corruption, analysts believe.
