China's top legislature Friday passed a revision of the law on consumer rights and interests, the first amendment since the law was adopted in 1993.

The Standing Committee of the 12th National People's Congress adopted the bill through voting at its bi-monthly session, which closed Friday. The bill had gone through three readings since April 2013, reports Xinhua.

The revision focused on better protection of rights and interests of consumers, added regulations on booming internet shopping and tightened liabilities of business.

The law has come at a time when the country is trying to turn domestic consumption into an engine of economic growth.
