The 13th NPC Standing Committee (NPCSC) will convene for its 33rd session late this month. The Council of Chairpersons is expected to meet soon after the Lunar New Year holiday (which ends on February 7) to decide on the agenda and dates of the session. The NPCSC will mainly make preparations for the 2022 NPC session at its upcoming meeting, but is still likely to review one or two legislative bills. Possible candidates include:
- draft revision to the Wild Animals Protection Law [野生动物保护法];
- draft Futures and Derivatives Law [期货和衍生品法]; and
- draft revision to the Vocational Education Law [职业教育法].
