China's parliamentary body, the National People's Congress, has started its annual session in Beijing.
At Wednesday's opening meeting, Premier Li Keqiang delivered a government work report, his first since taking office a year ago, reviewing progress made last year and laying out targets and policies for 2014.
Li says China faces great challenges and complex problems in pushing forward economic and social development.
He pledges to make breakthroughs in reform as the country seeks growth impetus in face of downward pressure on its economy.
