According to China News Weekly, Li Xiaoli, a deputy to the National People’s Congress, suggested that the Spring Festival statutory holiday be extended from the current 7 days to about 10 days.
Li Xiaoli said that as an important traditional festival, the Spring Festival is a day of reunion for thousands of families.
According to Li Xiaoli, the current seven-day Spring Festival holiday is difficult for people to fully feel the warmth of reunion with their families, it is difficult to arrange various activities reasonably, it is easy to cause traffic jams, which is not conducive to giving full play to the promotion role of the holiday economy, and extending the Spring Festival holiday has a strong feasibility and operability.
In fact, the proposal to extend the Spring Festival holiday is not the first time that it has aroused heated discussion at the two sessions of the National People’s Congress, and some people believe that of course, the longer the holiday, the better. There are many reasons, for example, in addition to the time of running and going on the road, the holiday is too short to reunite with family, visit the New Year, visit relatives and friends; for example, concentrated travel has also caused great pressure on traffic; for example, extending the Spring Festival holiday, the holiday economy can also expand consumption, stimulate domestic demand, and promote economic growth.
Some experts believe that to extend the Spring Festival holiday, it is better to implement the paid annual leave, and everyone can increase or decrease according to their own needs on the basis of the Spring Festival statutory holiday. This may be more feasible.
