The Fifth Session of the Tenth National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) is slated to open on Saturday afternoon in the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing and will last 12 days, Wu Jianmin, spokesman for the session, said Friday.

The conference is due to end on the morning of March 15, Wu said at a press conference.

Jia Qinglin, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, will deliver a report on the work of the CPPCC National Committee's Standing Committee over the past year, while Huang Mengfu, vice chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, will report how the suggestions and proposals from CPPCC members were handled since the last session, said Wu.

More than 2,200 CPPCC members, coming throughout the country, are expected to discuss the report on government work delivered by Premier Wen Jiabao, reports on the work of the Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate, and the drafts of property right law and corporate income tax law.
