Reporters invited. Significance?

Reporters are again invited to witness and report on the meetings of representative bodies in China. Will there be anything important to report?

Reporters invited to cover upcoming NPC, CPPCC sessions

"Chinese and overseas reporters are invited to cover the upcoming annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

"The 2nd session of the 11th National People's Congress and the 2nd session of the 11th National Committee of the CPPCC are to be convened on March 5 and March 3 in Beijing respectively...

"Two websites were opened Wednesday to help domestic and overseas journalists report the "two sessions" as the country's top-level political events are drawing near.

"The websites [not yet active, but you might find information at the 11th NPC site]... will post information related to news reporting on the events, the 'two sessions' offices said Wednesday.

"Last year's 'two sessions' saw 2,800 reporters from home and abroad, hitting a record high."
