From China Daily:
China is working on two more important laws on civil relations that will help complete the Civil Code by 2013, a senior official said Wednesday.
“The Law of Torts and Application of Law in Foreign Civil Relations will complete the Chinese corpus on civil law if both are approved by the National People’s Congress (NPC),” Kan Ke, spokesman for the general office of the Standing Committee of the NPC, said.
Kan was commenting on a plan yesterday to review 49 laws by 2013 pertaining to the NPC, food security, postal services, senior citizens, and other civil, criminal and administrative procedures.
Current laws concerning civil relations already include property, obligations, marriages, inheritance, adoptions, copyrights, trademarks and patents.
