The work began with the presentation of the text at the Standing Committee of the legislative body, to then carry out its second reading in groups.
According to the draft, the regulations will require the Internet giants, those technology companies that hold the information of a large number of people, to create an independent body to oversee the handling of the files.
That independent body will regulate more strictly and clarify limits on the excessive collection of data from users and descendants by digital companies, and will include sanctions for those cases that violate the public’s rights to protect privacy.
The Chinese Parliament will also examine a proposal so that those customers who leave too much food after consuming in a restaurant pay a surcharge, in line with the government’s campaign to reduce food waste.
The Assembly’s sessions will last until Thursday and other points for debate will be the laws related to the operations of the free trade port status of Hainan (south) and the rural revitalization to avoid a decline in extreme poverty, in addition to amendments to Education and Road Safety.
