TAMPERE, Finland, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

From March 3rd to 17th, all eyes are once again on China, as the country's once-in a decade leadership change is completed. The annual meeting of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the National People's Congress (NPC), also known as the Two Sessions or Lianghui, is the highlight of China's political season, coming on the heels of the Communist Party's Congress last November. By mid-March, a new government will be at the helm of the world's second-biggest economy.

"This is a very important time for the world because the decisions taken by the new Chinese government will have global implications in security, economy, business and environment. Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang, who are likely to be elected as the country's new President and Premier, have vowed to continue economic reforms and the opening up policy, as well as address many of the concerns of the Chinese people. It is going to be interesting to see what reforms and changes will take place once the leadership change has been fully completed," Gioia Forti, Editor-in-chief of gbtimes, explains.
