In just a few days, Beijing will be flooded with more than 2,000 party officials as they congregate in the Chinese capital for their annual political gathering.

This year's congress is significant because Xi Jinping will officially take over as the country's president.

It also marks the end of a leadership transition which was plagued by scandals involving murder and political intrigue.

The president-in-waiting has wasted no time in getting down to business, by addressing the perennial problem of corruption.
