China's top legislature will deliberate on a draft counter-terrorism law that aims to improve intelligence gathering and enhance international cooperation in the field later this month.

The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) will meet from Feb. 25 to 27, said a statement issued after the meeting of chairman and vice chairpersons of the NPC Standing Committee on Wednesday.

The draft law is targeted at boosting information sharing across government bodies and among the military, armed police and militia, and stipulates measures on Internet security, the examination of transport, dangerous materials, prevention of terrorism financing, and border controls.

Other key tasks at the meeting will be to discuss an agenda for the third annual session of the 12th NPC in early March, a work report of the NPC Standing Committee to be submitted for review during the session as well as draft lists of attendees.

The late February meeting will also see deliberation on a proposal from the State Council to review a draft amendment to the Law on Promoting the Transformation of Scientific and Technological Achievement and another proposal to review and approve a consular pact between China and South Korea.

In addition, attendees will review the qualifications of a number of NPC deputies as well as appointments and dismissals.

Zhang Dejiang, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, presided over Wednesday's meeting.
