SHANGHAI -- China's National People's Congress looks to pave the way for a post-COVID-19 recovery and a return to normal economic policies when the annual meeting of the country's parliament begins Friday.

The gathering will be preceded Thursday by the start of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, an advisory body. Both sessions will highlight China's medium- and long-term plans toward achieving a developed economy by 2035.
