China has made significant strides in promoting law-based governance in cyberspace, promulgating over 150 pieces of legislation in the field of cyberspace governance, Wang Song, deputy director of the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), told a press conference in Beijing on Tuesday.

China has been working to boost cyberspace governance by developing a complete system of laws and regulations, a highly efficient enforcement system, a stringent supervision system, and an effective supporting system, Wang told reporters at the press conference jointly held by the CAC and the Supreme People's Court in Beijing.

The groundwork for cyberspace legislation has been laid, providing strong institutional support for building up China's strength in cyberspace, Wang said.

Actively responding to the needs of justice in the age of the internet, efforts have been made to settle new types of cyber disputes, combat cyber crimes, and safeguard the lawful rights and interests of cyberspace players, he said.

In terms of supervision, China has improved the recording and review system for cyber legislation and achieved whole-process supervision over cyber law enforcement.

In the meantime, China has further improved the legal review system for major administrative punishment decisions to regulate administrative litigation and better coordinated cyber law enforcement with criminal judiciary to optimize the mechanism for handling cases.

Over the past 30 years since China was fully connected to the Internet, especially since the country entered a new era in 2012, law-based cyberspace governance has played an active role in supporting and driving high-quality socioeconomic development, Wang noted.

Local governments in areas hit by recent downpours in China are intensifying efforts to rescue residents trapped by floods, as torrential rains persist across some regions in the country.

On Saturday, heavy rainfall in Neijiang City, southwest China's Sichuan Province, led to urban waterlogging and landslides in some areas. The local firefighters swiftly responded to rescue operations. Firefighters transferred residents trapped in low-lying areas to safe place promptly, especially the elderly with mobility difficulties.

Rubber boats were also used to rescue and transport stranded passengers from cars as floodwaters inundated the streets. Water suction pumps were deployed to drain water from waterlogged residential areas, ensuring the safety and convenience of affected residents.

In addition, a landslide caused by the heavy rainfall sent a large amount of soil and gravel downhill, blocking the exit routes of a residential building at the foot of the hill and trapping residents inside. local firefighters quickly entered the building to conduct emergency search and rescue operations, successfully evacuating five stranded individuals.

As rainfall persisted in Neijiang, a level-III emergency response for flood control was implemented on Sunday morning.

In addition to Neijiang, some parts of Xinyang City in central China's Henan Province were hit by recent torrential rains, with rainfall peaking at 58.1 mm per hour. On Saturday afternoon, Zhaopeng Village in Shangcheng County experienced rising floodwaters, trapping elderly people and children in their homes. Local rescuers swiftly responded, using rubber boats to transfer the trapped villagers or carry them on back to safety.

As of Sunday morning, heavy rainfall continued in Xinyang, prompting the local meteorological station to issue an orange alert for rainstorms.

China has a four-tier flood-control emergency response system, with Level I being the most urgent response, and a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow, and blue.
