China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) has held a parliamentary session open to the public for the first time.
Twenty people, including civil servants, migrant workers and teachers from across China, were chosen to attend the historic session.
The debate focused on the sensitive subject of income tax.
The public hearing looked at tax reform, which is seen as a way of reducing China’s widening gap between rich and poor.
