China's top legislature will start a new wave of inspections on the implementation of its Law on Agriculture in September.
Five inspection teams, organized by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, will be sent to 10 provincial regions including Shanxi, Inner Mongolia and Yunnan.
Local legislatures of other provinces and regions were also ordered to check the enforcement of the law.
Wu Bangguo, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, said in a written comment that the inspections are aimed at helping find out the prominent issues that hamper China's rural reform and development and providing suggestions to promote the agricultural modernization.
The inspections, the eighth since 2003, will focus on five major areas including the development of modern agriculture, grain safety and the protection of farmland.
