BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s fight against deeply engrained corruption will never end, the country’s top official in charge of tackling graft said ahead of a key meeting to root out corruption in the world’s second-largest economy.
Since President Xi Jinping launched his high-profile campaign against corruption upon assuming office last year a series of senior official have been felled, including powerful former domestic security chief Zhou Yongkang.
“All these efforts have gained the support of the general public,” said Wang Qishan, who heads the ruling Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
“This is just the beginning,” he said, adding that the party’s anti-graft campaign requires “consistency, intensified supervision, discipline and accountability”.
Efforts to build a clean government “will never be concluded”, Wang was quoted as saying by the official Xinhua news agency late on Friday.
