Seven steps toward the Chinese dream
A total of 31 senior officials, some of them above ministerial level, were investigated for corruption last year, as the Party's sweeping anti-graft campaign went into top gear.

Those who have came under the spotlight included Li Chuncheng, former deputy Party chief of Sichuan province, and Jiang Jiemin, former head of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

Huang Shuxian, deputy chief of the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, said at a news conference on Sunday that his department had received more than 1.9 million reports on corruption, 19.8 percent of which were filed online.

He said that anti-graft agencies nationwide had 11.2 percent more cases year-on-year in 2013 and had punished 13.3 percent more corrupt officials than in the past year.

All government income and spending records must be included in budget management, Premier Li Keqiang said at a key anti-graft meeting in February, stressing that there would be no letup in the drive to sweep out corruption this year.

"To forge iron, one's own self must be strong," Party chief Xi Jinping said after the First Plenum of 18th Central Committee of the CPC in 2012, calling on all Party members to instill in themselves a stricter sense of discipline. His words have become the principle of the following year of cracking down on corruption.

He also vowed to go after "flies" as well as "tigers," meaning that officials at all levels would have to take the campaign seriously.
