For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi called on 11 newly ap­pointed diplo­mats to fully safe­guard the rights and in­ter­ests of over­seas Chi­nese na­tion­als on Satur­day at the 11th oath-tak­ing cer­e­mony of Chi­nese diplo­matic en­voys. Satur­day was also the min­istry’s open house day. About 260 pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives, in­clud­ing stu­dents from Pek­ing Univer­sity and the Bei­jing Fang­caodi In­ter­na­tional School, wit­nessed the cer­e­mony. Mi­grant work­ers will en­joy ear­lier ac­cess to train tick­ets for next year’s chun­yun, the travel rush around the Spring Fes­ti­val, the China Rail­way Cor­po­ra­tion said on Satu+++rday. A spokesman from the cor­po­ra­tion told Xin­hua that em­ploy­ers of mi­grant work­ers can start book­ing train tick­ets for their work­ers start­ing on Satur­day, 40 days ahead of the first day of chun­yun. The com­ing Spring Fes­ti­val falls on Jan 31. The ap­proach­ing chun­yun, lit­er­ally trans­lated as “spring trans­porta­tion”, is sched­uled for Jan 16 to Feb 24. Reg­u­lar train ticket sales online or by tele­phone start 20 days be­fore the travel date. This means mi­grant work­ers will be able to book tick­ets for the first day of chun­yun 20 days ear­lier than other peo­ple.
