MDC begs the United States Government to create a Golden Week for the american citizen.
In China, The “Golden Week” is the name given to a semi-annual 7-day national holiday, implemented in 2000.
MDC asks, What’s the deal? Three days of paid holiday are given, and the surrounding weekends are re-arranged so that workers in Chinese companies always have seven continuous days of holiday. These national holidays were first started by the government for the PRC’s National Day in 1999 and are primarily intended to help expand the domestic tourism market and improve the national standard of living, as well as allowing people to make long-distance family visits. The Golden Weeks are consequently periods of greatly heightened travel activity.
An estimated 28 million Chinese traveled during the first National Day Golden Week in 1999. In 2007, this number had increased to over 120 million.
We still want a Golden Week.
