The widely anticipated draft food safety law designed to raise standards and regulate supervision will be submitted to the national legislature for first review next week.

Drafts of the State assets law and social insurance law will also be tabled for first reading at the 31st session of the 10th National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee to be held from Sunday to December 29, a statement from the NPC Standing Committee said yesterday.

"Food safety is vital to improving people's lives and health, so legislation must match national efforts to safeguard food safety," Premier Wen Jiabao said.
