Beijing's top legislature said on Saturday it will increase efforts to make and revise regulations on easing "big city diseases" this year, in a move to improve people's lives.

In 2018, the Standing Committee of the Beijing Municipal People's Congress plans to make a series of regulations relating to people's daily lives, such as those for meteorological disaster prevention, affordable houses and non-motorized vehicles.

The plan was unveiled during the first session of the 15th Beijing People's Congress, which opened Wednesday.

Considering Beijing's "big city diseases", such as air pollution and traffic congestion, Li Wei, the capital's top legislator, said it also will include making and revising rules for parking cars and ecological protection.

"We'll prepare to review 13 work reports of the city's governmental departments whose jobs are close to residents' lives, including education and health authorities, this year, hoping to urge them to provide better services for people by increasing our supervision," he added.

Over the past five years, the legislature made 18 regulations and revised eight rules. Its focus has been transferred from the city's economic developments to the quality of people's lives.
