BEIJING - Journalists from China and abroad are being invited to cover two major annual events on the country's political calendar next month.

The first session of the the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the national advisory body, will open on March 3.

The first session of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC), the national legislature, will open on March 5.

The general offices of the NPC Standing Committee and the CPPCC National Committee announced Friday that a media center for the two meetings will open on Feb 26 at the Media Center Hotel.

Chinese mainland and resident foreign journalists should submit applications for reporting passes to the media center before Feb 28, while foreign reporters temporarily in China for the "two sessions" should apply at Chinese embassies or visa organizations authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Reporters from Hong Kong and Macao should apply at the central government's liaison offices in the two special administrative regions. Reporters from Taiwan should apply to the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office.

Two websites were opened Friday to help domestic and overseas journalists cover the sessions.

The websites - for the NPC session and for the CPPCC session - will post information related to news coverage for the events, the offices said.
