Thousands of delegates are in the Chinese capital this week to attend the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the National People's Congress. The rubber-stamp congress is scheduled to open Thursday, when its delegates will review the government's work report and its annual budget. The consultative conference is an advisory body to the congress.
