The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) held a chairpersons' meeting Monday to review draft laws and resolutions.

The meeting was presided over by Zhang Dejiang, chairman of the committee.

The chairman and vice chairpersons reviewed opinions from lawmakers about a draft law on national intelligence, and a draft amendment to the Water Pollution Prevention and Control Law.

The two drafts were submitted to the committee for a second reading at the start of its bi-monthly session.

Reports about the deliberation on the administrative and civil procedure laws were heard at the meeting.

Chairpersons also studied opinions of an agreement on the establishment of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Institute, and extradition treaties with Argentina and Ethiopia.

In addition, they heard a report on the central government's 2016 final accounts and an audit report on the central government's budget for 2016.

After further revisions, the documents will be reviewed at the next meeting of the chairman and vice chairpersons who will decide whether to put them to a vote.
