The annual National People's Congress got underway in Beijing on Friday amid what the state media are calling 'wartime measures' for the gathering of the country's most important political and business figures. China correspondent Nathan van der Klippe joins the show to discuss the NPC and the notion in China that it has been among the most competent countries in the world in terms of handling the Covid-19 crisis.
