China completes drafting e-commerce law
BEIJING: China has completed a draft version of the country's first e-commerce law to guide the sector's sound development, a lawmaker said Thursday. The draft will be submitted as early as possible to the Financial and Economic Affairs Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) for review, said Uzhitu, vice chairman of the committee, at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual parliamentary session. After that, the draft e-commerce law will be presented to the NPC Standing Committee for further reading, Uzhitu said. The legislation is necessary to deal with new problems in data protection and infringements upon customers' interests, he said.
