Spring Festival Travel Rush Kicks Off | CGTN Dialogue

Wednesday,Feb 07, 2018

About 3 billion trips will be made during this year’s Spring Festival travel rush, known as “the Chunyun” in Chinese, between the February 1st and March12th.

Travelling around during the festival is never easy. Although the Nation transport networks are more capable of handling, the volume and challenge still remains.


 

 

■ What are those challenges?

■ Would the expansion of high-speed network and other technological development solve the dilemma?

■ How does the travel rush reflect the economic growth and social mobility?


 

 

To consider these questions, the Dialogue Studio invited Dr. Wang Huiyao, the President of Center for China and Globalization (CCG), Yi Min, Chief advisor of Mass Transit Railway Corporation, and Aravind Yelery (via satellite), Assistant Director of Institute of Chinese Studies, share their opinions.

 

From CGTN, Feb. ,  2018

 

  • Chinese companies fulfill social responsibilities globally

    The report released Thursday by the Center for China and Globalization (CCG) said many companies have risen to the idea of win-win cooperation with local communities, using company development strategies.

  • Cui Fan: Negotiations still best way to end disputes

    The latest US investigation into China’s intellectual property policies and practices under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 is not the first of its kind. But the US has rarely used Section 301 against China after the latter’s accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, because the WTO mechanism offers a fairer, more comprehensive solution to bilateral trade disputes.

  • New policy announced to attract foreign talent

    The new policy, which will take effect in March, also offers favorable terms to foreigners who wish to seek permanent residence in China, according to the ministry.

  • China possesses second largest number of think tanks worldwide

    China had 18 think tanks on the Asian list that included top 60 think tanks from China,India, South Korea and Japan. CICIR took the lead in fourth. Specifically, TTCSP also listed five Chinese think tanks as “Think Tanks to Watch,” including Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (31) and Center for China and Globalization (CCG) (54).

  • Good outlook for bilateral trade

    Analysts from a leading Chinese think tank said they were optimistic about the prospects for China-US trade and investment, calling for a restart to negotiations on a bilateral investment treaty and for the promotion of cooperation in fields such as services trade and energy.
