All of China’s commitments are ongoing.

On asset recovery, China pledged to adopt more flexible approaches through domestic legislation for recovery of the proceeds of corruption, including mutually recognition and enforcement of non-conviction based forfeiture orders.

There are two commitments around limiting freedoms for the corrupt. One is to deny safe haven to those engaged in corruption through extradition, mutual legal assistance, and the recovery and return of proceeds of corruption; the other is to strengthen information sharing with international communities concerning cross-border movements of public official engaged in corruption and their illicitly acquired assets, as an effort to help expose corruption, bribery and illicit financial flows to the utmost extent.

China also committed to newly consider the potential of enhancing bilateral cooperation to fight corruption through the use of existing international legal instruments such as the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, the United Nations Convention on Transnational Organized Crime and other relevant initiatives of international cooperation under the framework of G20 and APEC. In addition China pledged to actively sign and conclude bilateral treaties on extradition and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters, striving to expedite international cooperation in the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and punishment of corruption offences.

All of China’s commitments were assessed as ambitious, but none were new.
