The State Development and Reform Commission will explain the Eleventh Five-year (2006-2010) Program on economic and social development. The Ministry of Science and Technology will inform reporters about building an innovation-oriented country.

The State Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Land and Resources, and State Environmental Protection Administration will jointly hold a press conference on building an energy-saving and environment-friendly society.

In addition, two press conferences, specifically sponsored by the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), will cover the topics of the Eleventh Five-year Program and the construction of a harmonious society.
