South China's Guangdong province will launch a pilot project this year requiring Party and government officials to report their assets in the latest move to curb corruption.

Guangdong's deputy Party chief Zhu Mingguo said the campaign will be introduced in designated cities and departments before the year-end and will be expanded to become province-wide in the following years.

Zhu, who is also secretary of the provincial commission for discipline inspection, made the remarks in an annual work report at a plenary session of the commission on Tuesday.

But he did not reveal any details about the project or mention if the information would be made public.

Zhu also said a new system will be introduced this year to standardize protocol for officials' acceptance of gifts.

And Guangdong will also further reform policies surrounding government car use, he added.

"The moves aim to ensure honest and clean governance in Guangdong," Zhu said.

Zhu urged officials and civil servants to refuse invitations for banquets, sightseeing tours, and entertainment and fitness events unrelated to their work.

He also pledged to introduce more effective and concrete measures to fight corruption in 2011.
