BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhua) -- The third annual session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body, was proposed to open in Beijing on May 21.

The recommendation was made at a recent meeting held by the Chairperson's Council of the CPPCC National Committee, which was presided over by Wang Yang, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.

The meeting reviewed and approved the draft decision to hold the annual session, the draft agenda and schedule for the annual session as well as the draft agenda and schedule of the tenth meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th CPPCC National Committee. It also heard a report on the preparations of the upcoming annual session.

Wang, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, pointed out that the "two sessions" -- the annual sessions of the top political advisory body and the top legislature -- are a major political event in China.

It was a major decision made by the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core to convene the "two sessions" against the special background that the country has regularized its COVID-19 epidemic response measures, Wang said. Enditem
