BEIJING Luis Montes World Cup Jersey , Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- China will extend its current corruption supervision pilot program to cover the entire nation in the next few months, in a bid to further "integrate resources" in the fight against corruption.
By the end of this year or early 2018, supervisory commissions will be set up by the People's Congress at provincial, city and county-levels across the country, to ensure that "all public servants exercising public power" are subject to supervision, according to a plan circulated by the General Office of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.
The three levels of commissions are part of the CPC's plan to establish a national supervisory system that oversees all state organs and civil servants in order to curb corruption and underhand behavior.
In January, pilot programs were launched in Beijing Jurgen Damm World Cup Jersey , and Shanxi and Zhejiang provinces.
According to the new plan, the decision to launch the pilot supervisory reform across the country on the basis of experiences in these three areas is a major strategic move to implement the spirit of the just concluded 19th CPC National Congress and promote strict Party governance.
The move is key to improving the country's national supervisory system with Chinese characteristics, and reinforcing self-supervision of the Party and the country, the plan said.
Beijing, Shanxi and Zhejiang shall continue to deepen their pilot reform, while the remaining 28 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions will set up the three levels of commissions Julio Dominguez World Cup Jersey , it said.
They should work to integrate anti-corruption resources, clarify the commissions' responsibilities, define their jurisdiction and means to investigate crimes and punish corrupt officials, and set up a coordination mechanism with law enforcement and judicial authorities, the plan said, adding that centralized and unified leadership of the Party over the pilot program should be strengthened.

DA NANG, Vietnam, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- The Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) was brought under the spotlight again this week, as delegates from 21 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies gathered here in Vietnam's Da Nang city for the annual economic leaders' meeting.
The vision to build FTAAP, proposed at the APEC meetings in Hanoi Juan Carlos Medina World Cup Jersey , Vietnam in 2006, was translated into reality at the 2014 APEC meetings in Beijing with the endorsement of a roadmap. A collective strategic study was conducted subsequently and the result was approved at the APEC meetings in Lima in 2016.
APEC members are expected to further discuss issues related to the proposed trade deal at this year's annual meetings.
A report from the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC) has estimated that the FTAAP, when realized, will add 2.4 trillion U.S. dollars to the global economy.
COMMITMENT TO MULTILATERALISM
The call for accelerating the FTAAP process comes amid slow and vulnerable recovery of the world economy, with the Asia-Pacific region becoming the powerhouse for economic growth.
The World Bank estimated global growth in 2017 to accelerate to 2.7 percent, while East Asia and Pacific, and South Asia take the lead with 6.2 percent and 6.8 percent of projected growth respectively.
However Jose de Jesus Corona World Cup Jersey , protectionism and policy uncertainties are still haunting global economic recovery.
"Protectionism is certainly affecting free trade," Tang Guoqiang, international co-chair of PECC, told Xinhua on the sidelines of the APEC meetings. He noted that the global trade growth has been slower than the global GDP growth in the past year, a phenomenon that worries some economists.
The past year has seen some incidents that fueled global concern over protectionism, including the United States' withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other multilateral mechanisms. The trend of de-globalization also emerged in other industrialized countries.
"The commitment to multilateralism seemed to have been lost in recent years in industrialized countries," Peter Drysdale Jorge Torres Nilo World Cup Jersey , head of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research and East Asia Forum in Australian National University, told Xinhua.
"And if the APEC economies, most of them, nearly all of them, don't assert that principle very strongly, then the whole rationale upon which the East Asia and Asia Pacific economic prosperity is based will be under threat," he said.
INTEGRATING REGIONAL FTAs
The plethora of bilateral and regional trade agreements in the Asia-Pacific region is a testament to both developed and emerging markets' enthusiasm for free trade and open economy. By the end of 2015 Jorge Torres World Cup Jersey , some 160 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) had been signed between APEC members, including over 60 regional FTAs.
But the presence of a complex web of trade deals, known as the "spaghetti bowl" effect, is likely to lead to higher administration costs, while the trade diversion effect may offset the initial gains of FTAs, according to the Collective Strategic Study on Issues Related to the Realization of the FTAAP approved by leaders of APEC members in 2016.
FTAAP, once established Jesus Molina World Cup Jersey , would be the world's largest free trade zone and would "fundamentally solve the 'spaghetti bowl' effect, and serve as a comprehensive and effective institutional framework for regional integration," said Liu Chenyang, director of APEC study center in Tianjin-based Nankai University.
According to Liu, a feasible way to achieve the FTAAP is through "docking, integrating or expanding the large-scale FTAs currently in the making."
These include the faltering TPP which now has 11 members after the United States' withdrawal, and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Jesus Manuel Corona World Cup Jersey , wh Perfumes have a .
