Visitors walk past a sign promoting the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing on November 8, 2104China secured backing from Asia-Pacific ministers Saturday to deepen anti-graft efforts, in a move that dovetails with a high-profile Communist Party “fox hunt” for corrupt officials who have fled abroad. The anti-corruption proposal is said to have been pushed by China and backed by the United States at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) gathering in Beijing, which culminates in a two-day summit of leaders from 21 member-economies starting Monday. “Corruption not only creates an unfair playing field, it not only distorts economic relationships, but corruption also steals from the people of every country the belief that the system can work for everybody,” he told reporters in Beijing.
