Special Report: 2010 NPC & CPPCC Sessions |


The theme, "a better life for the people" has dominated a ministerial press conference at the NPC session in Beijing today. Health, housing, and social security authorities laid out solid plans for changes.

For the people's most basic needs, this is the team with the answers.

Not surprisingly, the first question was about housing prices, which have risen faster than wages.

The government promises that affordable housing will go to those who really need it.
