Caixin Explains: China’s Big ‘Two Meetings’
(Beijing) — Every March, top lawmakers and political advisers gather in Beijing from all over the country to attend the “lianghui,” or “Two Sessions,” where they review the performance of the government over the past year and hear new policies and major economic targets.
The two parts of the lianghui are the plenary sessions of the National People’s Congress (NPC), which is the country’s top legislature, and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), a body that advises the government on a range of issues. The CPPCC session starts on Saturday, and the NPC session begins Monday. The meetings typically last about 10 days.
