China's top legislature opens bimonthly session (2)


08:54, December 25, 2012

This week, members of the top legislature will decide whether to approve a draft decision drawn up by the NPC Standing Committee to strengthen Internet information protection.

If the decision, which has the same legal effect as a law, is adopted, it will become China's second law on Internet management following the NPC Standing Committee's decision on Internet security maintenance which went into effect on Dec. 28, 2000.

They will also discuss a draft law on tourism and a draft decision of the NPC Standing Committee that would authorize a pilot program to allow Guangdong Province to adjust administrative examination and approval items.

The draft decision is the first of its kind to be made by China's top legislature in an effort to give local governments more power in administrative approvals and loosen government control in regulating private economic sectors.

According to an agenda for the session released by the NPC Standing Committee, lawmakers will also deliberate a draft resolution on convening the first annual session of the 12th NPC early next year.

They will also discuss a proposal on candidates for the electoral committee of the People's Liberation Army, submitted by the Central Military Commission.

A State Council report on land administration and mineral resource exploitation, utilization and protection will also be delivered to lawmakers for deliberation.

Also tabled for reading are the Supreme People's Court's report on trials concerning intellectual property and the Supreme People's Procuratorate's report on civil administrative procuratorial work.

Reports on the implementation of the Agriculture Law and the Law on the Promotion of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises will also be discussed.

Lawmakers will be briefed with reports on the government's reactions to suggestions and criticism offered by delegates attending the fifth annual session of the 11th NPC.
