--As the annual plenary sessions of China's National People's Congress (NPC) and the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) convene this week, the international community is watching China.

The CPPCC convenes today and the NPC convenes on Friday.

China achieved substantial economic growth in 2009 when most other economies were suffering in the global financial crisis and economic downturn.

But, what kind of answer sheet will China present in the year 2010?

So far, thousands of journalists and reporters from all over the world have arrived in Beijing to cover the sessions, hoping to seek clues and insight into the political life and economic prospects of China through the two important meetings.

Several Western media and think tanks, such as The Choice magazine of Japan, have commented that although the Chinese economy has seen remarkable recovery, China still faces various challenges including trade disputes and inflation.
