Premier Wen Jiabao's annual press conference is a rare opportunity for domestic and foreign journalists to ask him questions directly, although the questions must be arranged in advance.
He speaks very slowly - just three questions and answers in 40 minutes so far. He averages around 12 minutes per answer. Roughly the same length as many best man speeches - minus the jokes.
So far he has said that he hopes the US will ease restrictions in China's exports to the country.
