Springtime in Beijing: Bright, despite some bluster from the West

Springtime in Beijing brings with it China’s annual political “Two Sessions”, when the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s legislative body, meets, as does the advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). There can be little doubt that this year’s Two Sessions were of especial interest, both within China and without. Impatient for the headline points? Well, how does 6+% GDP plus enhanced foreign investment opportunities sound. Positive enough outlook for you?
