Wen renews anti-corruption call

Premier Wen Jiabao renewed his call for a fight against corruption, which he believes can undermine social stability if it is not dealt with properly.

At a meeting of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, Wen listed a series of priorities set for China’s anti-graft efforts in 2011, calling on the government to strive to prevent abuses of power, dereliction of duty and other types of misconduct.

Officials, along with their families and aides, are forbidden to interfere in or manipulate bid activities, Wen said. They are required to report their assets and the employment statuses of their family members. Officials will be held accountable if they accept bribes, either in cash, securities or payment cards, he said.

Leaders in State-owned enterprises are further forbidden from seeking illicit gains through businesses dealings or through trading, Wen noted. China has made progress in responding to the complaints of citizens and reducing administrative costs over the past year. But it is still in an extremely difficult point in its development, according to Wen.
