  BEIJING, March 2 (Xinhua) -- China is fully prepared for the annual session of the national political advisory body, which is to be held from March 3 to 12, said a spokesman here Sunday.

  As of 12 a.m. Sunday, 1,355 out of 2,229 members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) have registered at the secretariat of the session, said Lyu Xinhua, spokesman with the session, at a press conference.
