The National People's Congress is China's highest legislative body. The congress is composed of members from the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, a coalition of nine parties. In practice, the body has very little power, and only passes legislation already approved by senior Communist Party leaders. In Hu Jintao's new administration, the 2006 NPC is slated to be slightly more open than previous years. Formal issues listed for dicussion include the Three Nongs from agricultural reform, cracking down on corruption, and studying the Three Represents as the guide for Chinese policy in the days ahead. Formally, Premier Wen Jiabao made the annual Government Report to the Congress outlining government policy and their progress from 2005. The 11th Five-year Plan will undergo review. A Budget will be drafted for the following fiscal year. NPC Standing Committee Chairman Wu Bangguo will review the work of the NPC Standing Committee from last year.

On official Chinese news, the phrase "core of leadership" has been omitted when describing Hu Jintao.

Wen Jiabao's Government Report

The report is similar to a Speech from the Throne or State of the Union Address in the west. Wen Jiabao delivered the Chinese government's 2006 Working Report on the morning of March 5 at the Great Hall of the People, being nationally televised on 4 CCTV channels and other networks. The report was around two hours in length. The three sections of the report outlined the government's workings in 2005, the direction which the government is going in the new year, and a brief outline of China's 11th Five-Year Plan. Agriculture and the Three Nongs policy was emphasized throughout the speech, as was the relatively new concept of "Govern for the People" (执政为民). Analysts concluded that the report was thorough, detailed, thoughtful, and reached out to the people. It contained less political overtones than previous years. The longest applause came, as expected, during Wen's mention of the firm stance against Taiwan independence.
