The anti-corruption drive and anti-corruption achievements of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with General Secretary Xi Jinping as the core  over the past five years have attracted widespread attention throughout the world, some fully affirming the achievements and others offering high praise to the anti-corruption drive.

China's anti-corruption "achievements" hit the headlines across the world

In a Reuters article, it said, according to official Chinese data, since the anti-corruption drive started in 2013 nearly 1.34 million officials have been arrested.

The article also said that the anti-corruption drive is not only geared towards local officials, but is also monitoring CPC senior cadres and officials.

An article in France's Les Echos said, "since the start of the anti-corruption drive in 2013, nearly 1.34 million officials have been punished."

In addition, Switzerland's Radio Télévision Suisse, France's famous business magazine Challenge website, Radio France Internationale  and other mainstream media from French-speaking countries all published data about China's anti-corruption achievements.

China's anti-corruption drive responds to the people's calling

Another article in France's Les Echos said that before 2012 corruption was a chronic disease plaguing China. Over the past five years with the development of the anti-corruption drive, the situation has improved greatly, with anti-corruption targets including Party officials, military generals and also senior executives from large state-owned enterprises. Xi Jinping's determination to drive out corruption has become a "brand". He proposes "fighting the 'flies' and 'tigers' together".

Emmanuel Dubris de Prisque, a researcher into Chinese and Asian issues at the well-known French foreign policy think tank Institut Thomas More, was recently a guest on the France 24 Debate program. When talking about China's anti-corruption, he said that Xi Jinping has really responded to a calling and that is the Chinese people's calling. During the period of rapid economic growth, fighting corruption was what the people wanted and this demonstrates Xi Jinping's success.

Reuters said that since the 18th CPC National Congress, the CPC  has continued to step up anti-corruption efforts. The initiative has won over the hearts of the people and has cleaned up the social, economic and political environment. The anti-corruption achievements have undoubtedly been one of the most significant achievements since the 18th National Congress.

Singapore's Lianhe Zaobao said the fight against corruption has left a deep impression on the world and is welcomed by the Chinese people.
