BEIJING, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, on Wednesday concluded its bimonthly session, adopting several decisions including one to amend the Law on the Promotion of Clean Production.

President Hu Jintao signed a presidential decree to promulgate the decision.

The amended law expands on what "appropriate packaging of products" means.

The amendments reiterate terms such as "resource conservation" and "efficiency," while previously the law only repeatedly mentioned "reduction of pollution."

The session also approved a decision to permit appropriate modification to the methods for selecting Macao's chief executive and forming its legislative council in accordance with the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) Basic Law.

According to the decision, the current methods for selecting chief executive by an electoral committee and the current system of forming the legislative council of the Macao SAR with members either directly elected, indirectly elected or commissioned must be maintained.
