A statement on fighting corruption will be included in documents on the outcome of the ongoing APEC meetings, an official said on Thursday.

Alan Bollard, executive director of the APEC Secretariat, said the Beijing Statement on Anti-corruption has been proposed by both China and the United States.

Bollard said at a news briefing that the statement will result in a group being set up that could bring enforcement agencies across the APEC region together and allow them to pass information about particular cases to each other.

"This is necessary for us to track cases across borders within the APEC region and even to follow up and recover assets if they are removed illegally, "Bollard said.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Oct 2 that China is ready to enhance cooperation with the US on hunting criminals and recovering money obtained illegally.
