This year, nearly 3,000 National People's Congress (NPC) deputies and more than 2,100 members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee are attending this major political event, bringing with them motions and proposals. This provides a global window into the country's development and helps in understanding its policy direction for the coming year.
