China’s rubber-stamp parliament opens Monday a major annual session set to expand President Xi Jinping’s considerable power and clear him a path towards lifelong rule. Nearly 3,000 delegates from across China will gather at the imposing Great Hall of the People to sign off on the Communist Party’s agenda during the two-week meeting of the National People’s Congress. The session begins with Premier Li Keqiang delivering a work report, which economists will scrutinise for signs of deepening reforms in the world’s second largest economy.
