The Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party general office and the State Council's general office have recently issued "regulations concerning reports by the leading cadre about individual members". According to these regulations, members of the leading cadre should report details such as one's income, property and investments. These regualtions have received the attention of the foreign press.

The AFP (Agence France-Presse) has reported that recently the Chinese government even more severe policies against corruption. The media agency quotes statements made by Chairman's Hu Jintao, claiming that opposing corrupted officials has strong connection with the future of the Communist Party, hence a war against corruption must be declared.

According to the report, since long ago, corrupted Chinese officials have normally put their illegal property in the hands of family members or could keep it in foreign bank account of relatives living abroad. Thus, in order to prevent such actions from taking place, the new policies obligates the leading cadres to report any change in their marriage status and inform about the situation concerning one's husband, wife and children.

Journalists believe that the new policies show the Chinese government determination to fight corruption. AP (Associated Press) claims that such policies aren't merely targeted against officials in the Communist Party, as non-partisan officials who work in state-run enterprises must report about their income and property situation as well.

AP has added that in addition to common Chinese who complain about the severe problem of corruption, Chinese leaders also believe that corruption is a great danger to the country's stability.

The American Bloomberg's Press has also reported about the new Chinese government's policies against corruption. An article published claims that these are the sternest policies against corruption which the Chinese government has issued to date, and such policies not only high-level leaders under supervision, but also middle-level leaders.
