The new land border law was adopted by the standing committee of the National People's Congress and would come into effect starting January 1, 2022.
The law, approved by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), would have a bearing on Beijing's border dispute with India. It stipulates that "the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the People's Republic of China are sacred and inviolable."
The report further says that the state would strengthen border defense, improve public services and infrastructure in such areas, support economic and social development, encourage and support people's lives and work in such places, and promote coordination between border defense.
It further states that the country would attempt to resolve disputes and longstanding border issues with neighbors through negotiations, mutual trust, and friendly consultation.
China has a longstanding unresolved border dispute with India and Bhutan. The Ladakh province has seen the most significant increase in troop levels after the violent Galwan clashes in June 2020. China has reportedly constructed permanent structures along the LAC and added long-range artillery, tanks, rocket, and twin-engine fighters along the LAC.
Thus, it's true that China's new law would focus on territorial integrity and infrastructure development in border areas.
