China's top legislator on Thursday pledged more efforts to revise and improve laws and enact accompanying regulations, in addition to making news laws.

"Our legislative tasks are still painstaking and arduous, and legislative work has to get stronger not weaker," Wu Bangguo, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), said in a work report delivered at the annual session of the top legislature.

The legislative work of the NPC Standing Committee this year was to promptly revise laws incompatible with economic and social development, and to enact in a timely manner laws vital for pushing forward scientific development and promoting social harmony, he said.

According to him, laws to be revised this year include the Budget Law, Law Concerning the Prevention and Control of Occupational Diseases, Criminal Procedure Law, Civil Procedure Law, Civil Procedure Law, Organic Law of Local Governments, and Military Service Law.

The Law on Mental Health, Law on Administrative Coercion, and Law on Entry and Exit Administration are among those the NPC Standing Committee plans to enact this year.

Moreover, Wu said the NPC Standing Committee would urge relevant departments to promptly enact accompanying regulations, and do the follow-up work of reviewing laws and regulations well.

He added that a priority was to urge and guide the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate to complete the group review of judicial interpretations currently in force.
