It's still not paradise & utopia though, corruption because of too many holes and grey areas in this fast growing system which is a bit way too often
based on relationships (guanxi) need to be tackled on. And hard and fast! This is why "if everyone finds out, you are literally hanged
though my guesses based on my own personal experiences in Europe and China, is that corruption in China is certainly not less than in the West.
Hong Kong comes into a unique place in this topic, and give China hope and opportunities. In the 70s in HK it is one of the worst place to live, full
of corruption behind closed doors, but even in public. After HK revamped itself and with determination by the public and government, the
anti-corruption agency ICAC was set up. Result is that HK is now on the toplist of the most free economic environment in the world with one of the
least corruption rate. If it can be done in HK, it can be done in the rest of the mainland China. China's president Hu Jintao went to HK to check on
the ICAC operations a while ago, I bieve Beijing has the willpower and determination to tackle this issue. At least that is eventually what the people
really wants, just like back in Hong Kong.
