China's premier unveils more measures to tackle corruption
BEIJING (REUTERS) - The Chinese government will decentralise authority, be more transparent and adopt a "zero tolerance" attitude to corruption this year as it deepens its fight against graft, reported state media, citing Premier Li Keqiang.
President Xi Jinping has launched a sweeping crackdown on corruption since taking power, warning that the problem is a threat to the Communist Party's very survival.
The latest measures were laid out in a speech by Li on Feb 11, in a meeting on tackling corruption, but only published by state news agency Xinhua late on Sunday.
Li criticised the over-concentration of power by the central government and urged the institution of an open government "as the most effective way to accept supervision".
