Peo­ple’s Daily jus­ti­fies laws of over­seas NGOs

Fiji Sun - - World News - Feed­back: jy­otip@fi­jisun.com.fj

The state-pub­lished Peo­ple’s Daily said a num­ber of for­eign NGOs had en­gaged in crimes un­der­min­ing China’s na­tional se­cu­rity and in­ter­ests un­der the guise of ex­changes and co-op­er­a­tion.

The new law on over­seas non-gov­ern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tions ( NGOs) is nec­es­sary to en­sure their re­spon­si­ble op­er­a­tion on the Chi­nese main­land, ac­cord­ing to a com­men­tary car­ried by the Peo­ple’s Daily on Sun­day.

While the ar­ti­cle claimed that “China has al­ways wel­comed over­seas NGOs op­er­at­ing and de­vel­op­ing friendly ex­changes in the coun­try,” it also said that the lack of laws cov­er­ing NGOs has led to prob­lems.

The state-pub­lished Peo­ple’s Daily said a num­ber of for­eign NGOs had en­gaged in crimes un­der­min­ing China’s na­tional se­cu­rity and in­ter­ests un­der the guise of ex­changes and co-op­er­a­tion. Adopted by China’s top leg­is­la­ture on Thurs­day, the new law will take ef­fect on Jan­uary 1, 2017. That has left enough time for over­seas NGOs to un­der­stand their obli­ga­tions and for au­thor­i­ties to pre­pare to smoothly im­ple­ment the law, ac­cord­ing to the ar­ti­cle. Xin­hua
