China opposes any attempt to attack its business environment by misreading the country's Counter-Espionage Law, Lou Qinjian, spokesman for the second session of the 14th National People's Congress, told a news conference on Monday.

The revised law did not broaden the scope of espionage activities, but rather it refined the definition of activities and drew a clear line between legal and illegal activities. In fact, it has improved foreigners and foreign enterprises' sense of certainty and security in China, Lou stressed.

It won't affect the normal activities of business, science and research corporation, and academic exchanges, he added.

"After the passage of the revised Counter-Espionage Law in April last year, some Western media claimed that it will make coming to China riskier for foreigners and foreign enterprises. This is a misinterpretation," Lou said.

He added that the Standing Committee of the NPC has revised a series of laws related to foreign affairs to protect the rights of foreigners and foreign enterprises and further improve China's business environment.
