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.

The secretariat has received a total of 990 proposals and 303 speech transcripts, Lyu said.

The session is scheduled to open at 3 p.m. Monday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

At the opening meeting, Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, is expected to deliver a report on the work undertaken by the CPPCC National Committee's Standing Committee during the past year.

According to the session's schedule, political advisors will listen to and deliberate Yu's report as well as a report on the proposal-related work of the CPPCC National Committee since the last annual session.

Political advisors will also attend the annual session of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature, as non-voting participants.

State and Party leaders will attend the opening and closing meetings of the session and join political advisors in their discussions of state affairs, Lyu said.
