China's top legislator Wu Bangguo delivered a report on the work of the Standing Committee of the 11th National People's Congress (NPC) Thursday to the parliament's annual session.

Following are the highlights of Wu's report distributed to the media before the opening of the session:


-- The NPC Standing Committee deliberated and passed 16 bills and draft decisions on legal issues; listened to and deliberated 13 work reports by the State Council, the Supreme People's Court, and the Supreme People's Procuratorate; investigated compliance with six laws; conducted investigations and studies on two special topics and made inquiries on three special topics; handled 506 bills submitted by NPC deputies; approved three treaties and accords China concluded with foreign countries and China's accession to one international convention; made decisions on and approved the appointment or removal of a number of employees in state bodies; and made new contributions to ensuring that a socialist system of laws with Chinese characteristics was established on schedule, promoting the implementation of major decisions and arrangements of the central leadership, and stimulating comprehensive, balanced and sustainable economic and social development.


-- The NPC Standing Committee formulated and revised important laws in 2010, including the Social Insurance Law, the Law on Deputies to People's Congresses, the Organic Law of Villagers' Committees, the Law on State Compensation, the Criminal Law, the People's Mediation Law, and others.

-- The NPC Standing Committee supervised and guided relevant authorities in completing the concentrated review of existing administrative regulations and local statutes. By the end of last year, the State Council and local people's congresses had revised 107 administrative regulations and 1,417 local statutes, repealed 7 administrative regulations and 455 local statutes, and completed the concentrated review of existing administrative regulations and local statutes, thereby ensuring the socialist system of laws with Chinese characteristics was established on schedule in 2010.
