On Thursday 13th March, China concluded the second session of the 12th National People’s Congress (“NPC”) a day after the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Congress (“CPPCC”) wrapped up its parallel session. The lianghui, as the two meetings are commonly known, are one of the most important annual events on the Chinese political calendar. This year’s lianghui marked the first year in office of Li Keqiang as Premier and provided important detail in how the government will implement the directives announced during November last year.
