BEIJING -- A document on fighting corruption at grassroots level in the
countryside has been jointly issued by the General Offices of the Central
Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council.
It advocates clean governance in rural areas and aims to improve the codes of
conduct for Party members and officials at grassroots level.
Everything, except state secrets, must be open to Party members and
villagers, it says.
It calls for full investigations to be carried out of Party members and
officials who have violated Party disciplines and state law.
