Yet there are other dimensions to the campaign that are at least as important. At its heart, the campaign aims to rewrite the political bargain between central and local governments that has underpinned China's economic growth since the reform and opening program began in the early 1980s.
It is therefore a major prerequisite for achieving the ambitious economic and governance reforms that Xi laid out in his Decision at the Communist Party's Third Plenum a year ago. Arthur Kroeber will assess the aims and achievements of the anti-corruption campaign, the prospects for economic reform in the next two years, and the likely impact on foreign businesses in China.
