Members of China's top advisory body are gathering in Beijing for its annual session which begins on Thursday.
More than two-thousand members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference will take part.
"I come from Chongqing in southwest China. I have prepared for my speeches as well as proposals at the session. My proposals are about hot issues such as the Eleventh Five-Year Plan and the construction of a socialist harmonious society. I will try to fulfill my duty."
"Twenty-four delegates from East China's Anhui Province have brought with them 11 proposals, covering people's opinions and suggestion in both economic and social development."
"Food security is of common concern of people in China. It is closely related to the health of people. I will propose related proposals in the session."
Eighty new members will be added to the advisory body - Eleven of them are from the Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Regions.
Professor Zhang Tongxin from Beijing's Renmin University says having new blood from Hong Kong and Macau will provide more useful ideas for the central government on how to implement the "One Country, Two Systems" policy.
"More members from Hong Kong and Macau are needed to reflect local people's opinions and requirements to the CPPCC. This can provide precious opinions for the Chinese Communist Party to carry out different policies especially the 'one country, two systems' policy." 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
