BEIJING, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- Zang Tiewei, the first spokesperson of the Commission of Legislative Affairs of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, met the press for the first time Wednesday.

"The commission has decided to establish the spokesperson mechanism to strengthen and improve the publicity work of legislation in the new era", Zang told the media.

The duty of the spokesperson is to introduce the legislation arrangements of the NPC, the progress of related legislation work, as well as newly issued laws, he said.
