BEIJING, June 19 (Xinhua) -- Wang Chen, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), on Wednesday stressed all-around enforcement of the Higher Education Law.

The efforts aim to create a sound legal environment for building world-class universities, developing world-class disciplines, enhancing national core competitiveness, and improving the development level of China's higher education, according to Wang at a plenary meeting of the NPC Standing Committee's Higher Education Law enforcement inspection teams.

Wang called for sound observation of the Higher Education Law, with greater efforts to solve difficulties and problems facing China's higher education in terms of systems and mechanisms, scientific research and social services and to bring out the full potential of higher education.

The NPC Standing Committee announced the launch of the inspection on Wednesday. It will send inspection teams to four provincial-level regions between June and August. Legislative bodies in ten provincial-level regions are also asked to run parallel inspections.

The Higher Education Law was promulgated in 1998 and revised in 2015. School management, talent cultivation, the building of teaching staff, exam and enrollment reforms, are among the aspects to be inspected.
