Full coverage: The Sixth Plenum of the 18th CPC Central Committee

Cracking down on corruption has been a major focus at this year's Plenum and has also been key to President Xi Jinping's reform agenda. It's been two years since China began its robust anti-corruption clampdown and major progress has been made.

According to the CPC's central discipline inspection organ, between 2013 and 2016 more than one million disciplinary cases were filed. And, over one million officials have been punished across the country for disciplinary violations. That number has grown year on year.

To date, 109 middle or high ranking cadres have been investigated, with almost two thirds of them AT or UNDER provincial level. Those under investigation are from various sectors of the country, including judicial departments, finance, environmental protection, and sports.

In July this year, former general Guo Boxiong was sentenced to life in prison for taking bribes. His arrest came after that of former Politburo Standing Committee member, Zhou Yongkang, who was also handed a life jail sentence for bribery, abuse of power and other crimes.

Corruption among party officials is a major concern for Chinese people. A survey conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics last year showed that more than 90 percent of the public said they are satisfied or relatively satisfied with the country's achievements in cracking down on corruption.
