In his work report to the National People's Congress (NPC), the country's parliament, Wen said officials, especially high-ranking cadres, must "resolutely implement the central leadership's regulations on reporting personal property including incomes, housing, investments and spouses and children's jobs."

He said fighting corruption must be given a high priority as it has a direct bearing on the grip on power.

"Supervision and auditing departments should fully play their role in strengthening oversight of administrative power," he said.

Enforcement of relevant rules should be strengthened to prevent and punish corruption, particularly those concerning the allocation of public resources, trade in public assets, and the production of public goods, Wen said.
