Beijing hosts China’s annual two sessions


Beijing, 4 March 2024, (TDI): Beijing hosts China’s two sessions, as the state media highlights the significant event. China’s political luminaries, including lawmakers, government officials, and advisors, have convened for the annual Two Sessions.

More than 2,000 members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) have come together at the iconic Great Hall of the People. Many people gathered for the second session of the 14th CPPCC National Committee.

Led by Wang Huning, the CPPCC serves as China’s premier political advisory body. Wang delivers a comprehensive work report outlining key agendas and strategies.

President Xi Jinping’s presence at the opening meeting also underscores the importance of the session. The unity and collective action in steering the nation’s future course were visibly apparent.

Meanwhile, preparations are underway for the upcoming session of the 14th National People’s Congress (NPC) in Beijing.

3,000 members will convene with Premier Li Qiang, setting a comprehensive government report and outlining ambitious targets for various sectors. He particularly emphasized the need for economic growth amidst the prevailing challenges.

In a notable departure from tradition, the NPC announced that Premier Li would forego the customary post-session press conference. This refers to a practice initiated by Premier Li Peng in 1988.

The NPC’s clarification signifies a shift in communication strategy, discontinuing premier press conferences in subsequent years of the 14th NPC, except under special circumstances.

Instead, officials from China’s State Council will address domestic and foreign media, providing insights into key developments and policies discussed during the sessions.

Continuing deliberations will see the conclusion of the two sessions of the 14th CPPCC and 14th NPC on March 11, marking a pivotal annual event in China’s political calendar.
