Updated: 2014-10-27 13:46

China is now seeking to improve intelligence gathering and information coordination with the deliberation of its draft anti-terrorism law at the country's top legislature.

The draft anti-terrorism law will be submitted for discussion at the ongoing bimonthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to be held from Monday to Saturday.

The draft law calls for the establishment of a national anti-terrorism intelligence system and a platform for sharing information across government departments, the official Xinhua news agency reports.

China is facing a serious and complex struggle against terrorism, the report says.

Other parts of the law set for discussion include the "management" of the Internet, the transport of dangerous materials and border controls.
