China to Introduce More Rules to Facilitate Post-quake Rebuilding

After promulgating a regulation on the reconstruction in areas shattered by the May 12 quake, China promised Thursday to draft supplemental rules to help the regulation be fully implemented.

"The State Council will formulate more rules to ensure the implementation of the regulation," Cao Kangtai, director with the Legislative Affairs Office of the State Council, told a press conference here.

"For example, the executive meeting of the State Council has adopted a series of guiding proposals on the reconstruction of enterprises in quake-hit areas," Cao said, noting that they made clear requirements regarding the reconstruction of industrial, commercial and trading and other service businesses.

"We have to introduce concrete favorable policies, through which the related contents of the regulation will be further implemented," he said.

"We'll soon publicize some guiding suggestions to make the mechanisms in the regulations more concrete," he said, without giving further details.

China on Tuesday promulgated the regulation on post-quake reconstruction, the first of its kind, which imposes legal penalties for substandard reconstruction.

The regulation, which set guidelines for the reconstruction, provided important legal ground for the rebuilding work of various departments and quake-hit regions, according to the Legislative Affairs Office.

With nine chapters and 80 stipulations, it included the transitional settlement of survivors, reconstruction planning, assessment, financing, policies, supervision and management and legal obligations.

Cao said the dissemination of the regulation would be stepped up to "make the details known by every family and every person.

"We'll employ the power of the entire society to ensure and supervise the implementation of the regulation," he said.

The massive quake struck southwestern Sichuan Province exactly one month ago, and as of Thursday noon, had left 69,159 dead, 374,141 injured and 17,469 others missing.
