China's annual National People's Congress is under way at Beijing's Great Hall of the People - a 10-day affair that is the last parliamentary session under the current leadership.

Premier Wen Jiabao is delivering the opening speech to some 3,000 delegates from across the nation.

He will deliver a report card and set the agenda for the next 12 months.

These are expected to include a 7.5% target growth and $100bn in military spending.

China's leader-in-waiting, Xi Jinping, is expected to take over the party leadership from President Hu Jintao later this year.
