>People prudent about job change
A recent survey revealed that 69.8 percent of the Chinese working population was cautious about landing new jobs in the upcoming job change season. Nearly 86 percent of the respondents in the survey by China Youth Daily noted that people should be more prudent about job-hopping at the turn of the year, a perspective that received the most support from people born in the 1980s and 1990s and those with an annual income between 100,000 yuan and 200,000 yuan.
The survey found only 28.4 percent of respondents was optimistic about changing jobs in the next couple of months. Most of those surveyed are either 5 to 10 years into the workplace or with an annual income between 200,000 yuan and 300,000 yuan, it noted.
A total of 2,015 working staff took part in the survey.

>Pilot traces giant syringe
German pilot Samy Kramer has traced a giant syringe in the sky to remind people about the start of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in Europe. Kramer, a 20-year-old amateur pilot, had carefully plotted out the route he needed to take in advance to create the effect in the skies above Baden-Wuerttemberg.
The maneuvers included a number of 90-degree turns during the flight that lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes and covered about 280 kilometers.
"There are still relatively many people opposing the vaccination and my action may be a reminder for them to think about the topic, to get things moving", Kramer told reporters.
Germany officially kicked off its COVID-19 vaccination campaign on Monday. The federal government is planning to distribute more than 1.3 million vaccine doses to local health authorities by the end of this year and about 700,000 per week beginning in January.

>China to overtake US 'by 2028'
China will overtake the US to become the world's largest economy by 2028, five years earlier than previously forecast, a report said.
The UK-based Center for Economics and Business Research said China's "skilful" management of COVID-19 would boost its relative growth compared to the US and Europe in coming years.
Meanwhile, India is tipped to become the third largest economy by 2030.
China's share of the world economy has risen from just 3.6 percent in 2000 to 17.8 percent now, and the country will become a "high-income economy" by 2023, the report says.

>Hainan opens 3 duty-free shops
Three new offshore duty-free shops opened on Wednesday in South China's island province of Hainan to promote tax-free consumption, according to the provincial department of commerce.
The three newly-opened shops are all located in the tropical resort city of Sanya, one in Sanya Phoenix International Airport and the other two in downtown Sanya.
The larger of the two downtown locations has a shopping area of 95,000 square meters, offering nearly 350 international brands.
The province earlier had four duty-free shops, with two in the provincial capital, Haikou, one in Bo'ao and one in Sanya, all operated by China Duty Free Group.
However, two of the three new shops are operated by another two companies.
The arrival of the two firms will help Hainan form a pattern of differentiated competition and better meet tourists' needs for duty-free shopping, according to an official with the department.
Sales of offshore duty-free shops in the province have exceeded 31.58 billion yuan so far this year. The number of shoppers has exceeded 3.4 million, purchasing more than 19 million items, up 130 percent, year-on-year.
