>88M trips made during holiday

The three-day Mid-Autumn Festival holiday saw about 88.16 million domestic trips generating revenue of 37.15 billion yuan, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

Chinese traffic police ensured smooth flow of travel during the holiday, creating a sound environment for people to go home for family reunions or visit tourist attractions, the Ministry of Public Security said Tuesday.

As of 5 pm Tuesday, no large congestion had occurred and no major road accidents were reported.

An average of 155,000 officers were dispatched every day and 54,000 police vehicles were mobilized to patrol, maintain traffic order and crack down on serious violations such as overcrowding cars and drunk driving.

>OECD releases economic outlook
OECD: 2021年中国经济将增长8.5%

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said in its interim economic outlook released on Tuesday the global economy is expected to grow by 5.7 percent this year, 0.1 percentage point down from its May forecast.

The unevenness of the recovery, which reflects countries' pre-COVID 19 strengths and weaknesses as well as their policy approaches during the pandemic, is worsened by large differences in vaccination rates between countries, it said.

The Chinese economy is expected to grow by 8.5 and 5.8 percent in 2021 and 2022 respectively, as in the May forecast.

The United States saw its 2021 outlook revised down from 6.9 percent in May to 6.0 percent.

But the forecast for 2022 is upgraded to 3.9 percent from 3.6 percent in May.

Eurozone GDP is expected to grow by 5.3 percent in 2021.

>US to ease travel restrictions

The United States plans to ease travel restrictions on all fully vaccinated foreign visitors starting in November, the White House said Monday. Fully vaccinated foreign nationals and American citizens returning to the United States from abroad will be required to take a pre-departure Covid-19 test within three days of their flight and show proof of a negative result before boarding. They will also need to do a viral test three to five days after arrival.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to issue a contact tracing order requiring airlines to collect information from US-bound travelers, including phone number and email address. Airlines will be required to keep contact tracing information for 30 days.

"Fully vaccinated," as per the CDC, includes those who have received not only the vaccines approved for use in the US but those listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization but have not yet received such approval in the US.
