Yao Ming and Jackie Chan Attended a Chinese Congressional Meeting

Chinese officials and politicians met at the Great Hall yesterday for the annual “rubber stamp legislature," which combines two political meetings (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and National People’s Congress).

The meeting talked about various government policies, one of which, according to speculation, is a potential raising of the quota for foreign movies in China, which would really great news for Hollywood, who want in on that China market really badly.

And who better to help decide the future of Hollywood profits than Jackie Chan, who attended the event along with Yao Ming?

The two attended the congressional meeting, reported The Hollywood Reporter, along with other Chinese actors and directors, as "symbolic advisors".

On a somewhat unrelated note, here's a picture I snapped of Yao, towering over everyone (including Tony Parker) at the NBA's China party after All-Star Saturday Night in New Orleans. The dude is huge.
