Constitution Day (4 December)
The existing Constitution of the People's Republic of China (The Constitution) was adopted at the Fifth Session of the Fifth National People's Congress on 4 December 1982. The Constitution is the fundamental and supreme law of the state. As an important symbol and sign of the nation, it has the highest legal status, legal authority, as well as legal effect.
With the aim of enhancing public awareness of the Constitution, promoting its spirit, strengthening its implementation and advancing China's overall law-based governance, the Standing Committee of the Twelfth National People's Congress decided at the Eleventh Session on 1 November 2014 to designate 4 December as the "Constitution Day" and that the nation will conduct promotion and education activities of the Constitution through multiple channels.
