Premier Says China Beset by Corruption and Rural Land Issues – Jim Yardley

From the New York Times (link):

Prime Minister said Tuesday that China’s rapid economic rise is being accompanied by a “high concentration of all kinds of acute problems,” including official by some officials who “have violated the rights of the people.”

Mr. Wen also said the government had “no surprise” revaluations planned for its currency this year.

He described the “land issue” as the biggest problem facing hundreds of millions of farmers but suggested that government land policy would not change. Instead, he said enforcement of existing policy must be strengthened to protect farmers’ rights at a time when illegal land seizures have fueled protests in the countryside.
