Lin Duo’s early career was in various positions in Beijing – from highways to Party Secretary of Beijing’s Xicheng District over the course of 30 years. During his tenure in Beijing he studied at the Beijing Party School on a part-time basis, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in 1993 and a Master’s in 1997.
Between 2010 and 2014 Lin Duo served in Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang Province (Party Secretary of Harbin from 2012) before being transferred to Liaoning Province in August 2014, as part of Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign. As Secretary of the Commission for Discipline Inspection, Lin was reportedly instrumental in leading the investigation into the Liaoning vote-buying scandal, which led to the suspension of the provincial People’s Congress.
On 1 April 2016, Lin Duo was made acting Governor of Gansu province in northwest China, despite it being considered an unusual move to go directly from a discipline chief position to governor. On 11 April 2017, Lin was appointed as the Communist Party Secretary of Gansu, replacing Wang Sanyun who was later placed under investigation.
