Wen's address also indicated that the rules for limited-scoped publication of senior officials' personal information "would be researched and promoted."

Personal information includes income, investments, marital status and overseas travel of the official and his or her family members.

Wen particularly called for a prompt response to complaints raised by the public and problems exposed by the media.

Those issues should be carefully investigated and handled in accordance with the law while the result should be provided or made public, said Wen.

Earlier in January, a communique issued after a plenary meeting of the discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) called 2012 "a year of significance" for deepening the anti-corruption drive.

It also called for efforts in tapping the positive role of new media, including the Internet, in facilitating China's anti-corruption drive and upgrading its campaigns against corruption in key areas that have been the subject of complaints from the public.

According to the reports adopted at the annual parliamentary session early this month, Chinese prosecutors had investigated 2,524 officials found to be corrupt at or above the county head level, with 198 at the prefectural level and seven at the ministerial level in 2011.

Meanwhile, 29,000 people had been convicted of embezzlement, bribery or malfeasance last year.

"The task of anti-corruption remains arduous," said the communique, which called for greater efforts in building a system of corruption prevention and control.
