Hostesses dressed in the headgear of a southwest Chinese ethnic-minority pose for photographs on Tiananmen Square in Beijing on March 4, 2010 a day before the opening session of the National People’s Congress, the ruling Communist Party’s annual rubber-stamp parliament, which will take place inside the Great Hall of the People (rear). China has announced its smallest defence budget increase in several years and sought to soothe foreign concerns that its rapid military modernisation posed a threat to other countries, with the bulk of the spending increase due to go toward improving conditions for China’s 2.3 million servicemen and women and for military modernisation.
