The amendment to the Criminal Procedural Law supplements and improves the criminal procedure system in regards to evidence, defense and trial procedures, Wu said.

The legislature ratified two treaties between the Chinese and Italian governments regarding extradition and mutual judicial assistance in criminal cases.

The legislature approved a decision to appoint Wang Xia as minister in charge of the National Population and Family Planning Commission.

The NPC also heard reports on the transformation of the economic development mode and the development of the tourism industry.

Wu urged lawmakers to summarize effective work experience and practices and strive to boost work quality in handling all motions.

He also called for making full preparations for the 5th session of the 11th NPC, which was decided to be held on March 5, 2012.

Also on Saturday, the NPC Standing Committee held a special lecture on new features of the changing international situation and new challenges and opportunities to China.

Wu presided over the lecture given by Huang Renwei, deputy president of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

Huang said, China's diplomatic work maintained the stability of the country's surrounding environment, developed relations with major world powers and strengthened cooperation with emerging economies.

The world's dominant course is one of peace and development and the country's strategic opportunities still exist, Huang said.

China should carefully study the new problems and challenges brought by the changes in international politics and economics, and take advantage of strategic opportunities, Huang said.
