China opened the annual session of its legislature this week in Beijing. The nearly 6,000 delegates to the National People’s Congress and its advisory body include hundreds of military officers, representatives of ethnic groups and Chinese celebrities like former NBA player Yao Ming. The Chinese legislature has a rubber-stamp function but the agenda includes speeches from policy makers like Premier Li Keqiang.
