Storyline


China's top legislature set its main tasks for this year in the annual work report made at the ongoing session of the National People's Congress (NPC).

The report of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) was delivered Monday by the committee's chairman Li Zhanshu during the second plenary meeting of the third session of the 13th NPC in Beijing.

In the coming months, the NPC will focus the efforts on the following main tasks:

"Ensuring full enforcement of the Constitution. We will see that procedures and mechanisms for interpreting the Constitution are well implemented, and make progress in constitutional compliance inspection. We will enhance the functions of the national digital platform for recording and reviewing the documents," said Li.

"Remaining committed to upholding law-based governance in Hong Kong and Macao, we will work to safeguard constitutional order in the two special administrative regions as stipulated in China's Constitution and the Basic Laws, refine the system for interpreting the Basic Laws by the NPC Standing Committee, and establish a sound legal system and effective enforcement mechanisms at the national level for safeguarding national security in the two regions. We will maintain our principles and policies on work related to Taiwan, uphold the one-China principle, resolutely oppose and contain separatist forces seeking 'Taiwan Independence', and promote the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations on the basis of the 1992 Consensus," Li continued.

Li said facing extremely onerous tasks on the legislative agenda this year, it is necessary to balance quality and efficiency, endeavor to make legislation more thoughtfully designed and precisely targeted, and follow through with every piece of legislation put forward.

"Strengthening legislative work in key areas. To promote high-quality development, we will formulate the Yangtze River Conservation Law and the Hainan Free Trade Port Law. To improve systems for ensuring people's wellbeing, we will prioritize legislation on public health. In the realms of national security and social governance, we will formulate the Bio-Security Law. To accelerate the creation of a system of laws for extraterritorial application, we will formulate the Export Control Law and revise the Anti-Money Laundering Law.

We will also ensure that legislative work relating to decisions regarding authorizations and reforms is well executed. All in all, we will endeavor to accomplish the major legislative tasks set by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC)," said Li.

The report also stressed that more efforts will be made to exercise oversight in accordance with the law, support deputies in performing their duties in accordance with the law, actively conduct international exchanges, and enhance self-improvement of the NPC Standing Committee.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and other leaders attended the meeting at the Great Hall of the People.
