China Voice: China awaits more after Xi's new moves

BEIJING, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Though only in office for about a month, China's new top leadership has impressed the public with a series of refreshing moves to fight corruption and soften the image of officialdom.

Now that the public's expectations have been raised, the challenge lies in living up to these expectations.

Since becoming general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee in mid-November, Xi Jinping has garnered extensive support for his easygoing style and inspiring speeches. He has pledged deepening reforms, strengthening the rule of law, rejecting extravagance and reducing bureaucracy, and realizing the "Chinese dream" -- the nation's rejuvenation.

The new moves of China's top leadership can be summed up in three "Rs" -- Reform, Rejection and Rejuvenation.

On all three fronts, especially in terms of reform, China's new leadership should be determined and persistent enough to remove formidable obstacles standing in the way of satisfactory results.

Social equity is a major mission of the Party while it pushes forward reform. Meeting this target requires simultaneously cracking down harder on corruption, giving a boost to the private sector and transforming the income distribution system.

After the CPC national congress concluded last month, a wave of graft cases were exposed online. While this resulted in the much-applauded removal of several high-level officials, it also put an embarrassing question mark on the effectiveness of the official anti-graft system.
