CPC pledges unremitting efforts to combat corruption

Chinese leader Hu Jintao on Thursday said the Communist Party of China (CPC) must make unremitting efforts to combat corruption, promote integrity and stay vigilant against degeneration.

Hu said combating corruption and promoting political integrity, which is a major political issue of great concern to the people, is a clear-cut and long-term political commitment of the Party.

“If we fail to handle this issue well, it could prove fatal to the Party, and even cause the collapse of the Party and the fall of the state,” Hu warned in a keynote report at the opening of the 18th CPC National Congress.
