The 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the annual session of the Chinese Parliament, started on Saturday in Beijing.

Nearly 3,000 delegates would be attending the ten-day meeting which would be concluding on 13 March 2012.

The participants will be discussing the political and economic reforms the country has to take forward.

The session will be the last for President Hu Jintao, whose term ends at the end of the year.

Specially trained hotel guides have been provided to cater to the delegates at the congress.
