Special: China cracks down on graft
BEIJING - The full text of a speech made by Premier Li Keqiang at a key anti-graft meeting earlier this month was published on Sunday, reiterating a systematic and reinforced anti-corruption campaign in 2014.

Li was speaking at a meeting of the State Council, or China's cabinet, on promoting clean-handed government and mapping out this year's anti-graft plans.

Calling for rigid accounting for government financial records, Li stressed that all government income and spending records must be included in the budget management, according to the full text of the speech.

He encouraged auditors to be brave in thoroughly probing violations.

Li also urged for reinforced supervision over the power, noting that the key to corruption restraint if to control the power and money spending of officials.

At the meeting, the premier vowed complete transparency in government affairs regarding "three public consumptions" on official vehicles, trips and receptions.

He also pledged maximum effort to loosening administrative approvals for investment.

He urged more publicity for food and drug safety, affordable housing and medical charges.

Officials were also told by Li to take the lead in clean government building by implementing the spirit of President Xi Jinping's anti-graft speech to the third plenary session of the Party's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection in January.
