China will further promote consumption, dovetailing it with the development of transport sector, according to the Ministry of Transport (MOT).

The ministry will ramp up the construction of infrastructure, rapidly develop urban public transportation, and enhance the building of logistics facilities in rural areas to tap consumption potential, said a circular released by the ministry to provincial departments of transport.

The document called for improving the quality of passenger transport, transfer services and ticketing for better travel experience.

Meanwhile, logistics service will be strengthened to meet rising consumption demands, with more advanced technology in place to promote cold chain logistics.

The transport sector will work with other industries such as tourism and information sectors to facilitate travel and accelerate digitization of transport infrastructure, according to the document.

The MOT also stressed the use of new energy vehicles to promote green transportation.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the daily passenger volume of civil aviation reached 1.0367 million on June 5, recovered to 61.5 percent of the same period of last year. This is the first time since January 28 that the daily passenger volume has risen to more than one million and the daily flights reached 11,333.
