The new leadership has made clear that it recognises the need to tackle corruption and improve governance in China. It has also expressed a desire to reform regulatory regimes and corporate governance structures, especially in the state owned sector. We welcome this and are willing to share British expertise where appropriate. We continue to encourage China to promote freedom of expression, strengthen the rule of law and strengthen civil society to tackle the roots of corruption.
