    BEIJING - China expressed its resolve to strengthen the fight against corruption Wednesday as it released its first ever white paper on anti-graft efforts.
    The document, titled China's Efforts to Combat Corruption and Build a Clean Government, was issued by the Information Office of the State Council, or Cabinet.

    China's efforts to combat corruption and build a clean government, which is managed systematically and promoted comprehensively, has "achieved results," the report said.
    From 2003 to 2009, prosecutors at all levels investigated more than 240,000 cases of embezzlement, bribery, dereliction of duty and rights' infringements, according to the report.
    Over 69,200 cases of commercial bribery, involving 16.59 billion yuan in total, were investigated from 2005 to 2009, it said.
    In 2009, some 7,036 officials were held responsible for acts like making serious mistakes in decision making, breaching of duty, and failing to manage and supervise subordinates, the report said.
    The report quoted a National Bureau of Statistics survey as saying that 83.8 percent of Chinese thought corruption was reduced to some extent in 2010, up from 68.1 percent in 2003.
    The document warned that the task of curbing corruption remains tough.
    China has undergone dramatic economic and social changes. The ideas and concepts of the people have evolved, leading to increased social conflicts, the report said.
    "Since the relevant mechanisms and systems are still incomplete, corruption persists, some cases even involving huge sums of money, " the report said. "Breaches of law and discipline tend to be more covert, intelligent and complicated."
    The Communist Party of China (CPC) and the government understand the "long-haul, complicated and arduous" nature of anti-graft missions, the report said.
    "They will resolutely punish and effectively prevent corruption with more resolutions and powerful measures," the report said.
    The report introduces principles, working mechanisms and legal framework for China's anti-graft system. It also sets out the progress made in combating corruption and international anti-graft cooperation.

    Yes, this is a very good improvement! At least china and chinese governement acept the fact that a wide quantity of governement employe are corrupted! But even if they have already arrested few hundred of these guys, it is for sure far to be enought to be applauded! As long as I will see in the street or in residence of middle standard, china governement employe driving VW Touran or Maserati or even jaguar or Mercedes 600, sorry all with white registration number, and all of us we know that their salary if far too low to be able to purchase such cars, as long as this will be happeneing, sorry to say but corruption are still very much in live!

    "Since the reform and opening-up drive was launched in 1978, especially since the beginning of the 21st century, China has adhered to the principle of controlling and combating corruption by way of development and reform," says the white paper, titled China's Efforts to Combat Corruption and Build a Clean Government.

    China has deepened the reform in the system of administrative examination and approval, says the paper, which was released by the Information Office of the State Council.
    The Chinese government has speeded up the separation of government functions from those of enterprises, state asset management authorities, public institutions and market-based intermediaries to accelerate the transformation of the government functions, according to the paper.
    The white paper says China has been promoting the reform of the cadre and personnel system.
    "China adheres to the principles of democracy, openness, competition and merit in establishing a scientific mechanism for selecting and appointing cadres as well as a management and monitoring mechanism in this regard," says the white paper.
    This is to increase public trust in the selection and appointment of cadres, and prevent and combat corruption at the very source, it says.
    Efforts have also been made to deepen the reform of the judicial system and working mechanism, aiming to safeguard judicial justice and establish a fair, efficient and authoritative socialist judicial system, the white paper says.
    In addition, further reforms have been launched in the systems of fiscal management, investment and finance to prevent and control corruption in these fields.

    China has intensified its anti-corruption supervision of members and officials of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in the country's armed forces, according to a new trial regulation made public Wednesday.
    The disciplinary regulation on inner-party supervision in the armed forces was approved by Chinese President Hu Jintao and issued by the Central Military Commission (CMC).


    The regulation will be applied to CPC members and officials, especially Party chiefs in the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the armed police forces.

    According to the regulation, special efforts will be made to supervise "key areas" prone to corruption, including those related to the selection and promotion of officials, the enrollment of new students for the armed forces-affiliated schools, funds management, construction work and supplies and armaments procurement.
    Inner-party supervision will be carried out via various measures including supervision of decision making processes, and the asking of Party officials to report on important issues, the regulation said.
    Moreover, the regulation stressed the leadership of the CPC over the armed forces.
