BEIJING — A spokeswoman for China's national legislature said on March 4 China would further build institutional mechanism to crack down on corruption.

China has revised the Budget Law to better manage government revenues and spending so as to strengthen supervision on power, said Fu Ying, spokeswoman for the third session of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC).

The law, revised last year, defines the government budget in four parts: the general budget, the budget for government-managed funds, the budget for state-owned assets and the budget for social insurance funds. All the four parts would be subject to supervision.

The country is also considering to revise the Criminal Law to enhance efforts to curb embezzlement and bribery, she said.

Offering bribes to officials' relatives would be added to the list of the bribery crime, she said.

The NPC annual session will start to convene on March 5.
