China’s Standing Committee Reviewed Revisions to Law on the Protection of State Secrets

The Standing Committee of the 14th National People’s Congress (NPC) held its final two-day meeting in Beijing, where it will likely pass the revisions to China’s Law on the Protection of State Secrets on February 27th.

The committee reviewed a report on revisions to the Law on the Protection of State Secrets by the NPC’s Deputy Chairman of the Constitution and Law Committee.

The revisions to the law include standardizing the country’s classification system and expanding on what is considered confidential (work secrets).

The revisions also include safeguards, measures, and management for the legitimate rights and interests of people involved in or resigning from jobs or posts involving ‘confidentiality’ in handling intelligence.
