The above is the epidemic situation.

Now, lets go to the on-site question section, and ask the reporters friends to ask questions about todays release theme. Please inform your news agency before asking questions.

CCTV reporter:

After investigation, the impact of the epidemic on the accommodation industry and catering industry is still relatively large, and even some enterprises complain that they can not survive for three months at most. Premier Li Keqiang stressed at the executive meeting of the State Council yesterday that we should increase support for small and medium-sized enterprises and individual businesses. What measures will the Ministry of Commerce take to deal with this?

Xian Guoyi:

Accommodation and catering industry is a large industry. In 2019, the operating revenue of accommodation and catering industry exceeded 5 trillion yuan, and more than 26 million people were employed. It is an important area for stable growth, employment promotion and livelihood benefits. After the outbreak of the epidemic, the operating revenue of accommodation and catering enterprises has declined significantly, and the operating pressure of enterprises is very high. The CPC Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to it and have issued a series of supporting policies, mainly including the exemption of value-added tax on the living service income of accommodation and catering enterprises during the epidemic prevention and control period; the exemption of pension, unemployment and work-related injury insurance fees for small and medium-sized enterprises outside Hubei Province from February to April, and the reduction of half for large enterprises; the exemption of pension, unemployment and work-related injury insurance fees for enterprises in Hubei Province from February to June; and the postponement of payment Housing accumulation fund; the electricity price will be reduced by 5% from February to June; financial institutions are not allowed to blindly withdraw, cut off or squeeze loans for accommodation, catering and other industries that are greatly affected by the epidemic. There are also the small loan interest rate cut of 0.25 percentage point to 2.5% just released yesterday; many places have also introduced support measures, some of which provide rent reduction support for accommodation and catering enterprises, some of which provide unemployment insurance, steady post return subsidies, and some of which provide group meal links for catering enterprises to large group users.

We see that the central and local support policies are gradually being implemented. According to our questionnaire survey of more than 4000 life service enterprises, as of February 25, 22% of the enterprises have enjoyed the support policies, and some large-scale accommodation and catering enterprises have received the loan support from the bank, which significantly eased the financial pressure. Of course, we also notice that there are many small and medium-sized enterprises in accommodation, catering and other industries with few collateral. How to make these small and medium-sized enterprises get financial support as soon as possible and smoothly, and how to maintain their capital chain? How to make these enterprises reduce their operating costs more effectively and get through this difficult period also requires continuous business innovation of financial institutions, and the joint efforts of industry, enterprises and government departments Strive. The epidemic will not change the trend of rapid development and continuous upgrading of accommodation and catering and other life service industries. It is expected that accommodation and catering will recover rapidly after the epidemic. The Ministry of commerce is also working with relevant departments to further study and issue more targeted policies and measures to support enterprises to overcome difficulties. At the same time, we are also studying measures to revitalize the catering industry after the epidemic, so as to promote the green, economical and ecological development of the catering industry. Thank you.

Peoples daily and peoples Daily:

Influenced by the novel coronavirus pneumonia, many tourism enterprises are facing difficulties in operation. Before the Ministry of culture and tourism has issued policies to refund 80% of the travel service quality deposit to eligible travel agencies, how is the policy going? Whats the effect? In addition, what are the policy measures to solve the difficulties for the cultural and tourism enterprises? Thank you.

Liu Kehzi:

Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the tourism industry has been seriously affected, and tourism enterprises are also facing business difficulties. The Ministry of culture and tourism attaches great importance to it. On February 5, the Ministry of culture and tourism issued a notice, and decided to temporarily withdraw part of the travel service quality deposit to travel agencies. The scope of the temporary withdrawal is the travel agencies that have paid the deposit and obtained the travel agency business license in accordance with the law. The current withdrawal standard is to pay the deposit 80% of the allowance. According to the requirements, local cultural and tourism administrative departments have designated special personnel and established working account, mainly strengthening contact with banks to provide services for travel agencies. According to statistics, there are 39000 travel agencies in China. As of February 25, 35200 have proposed to withdraw the quality guarantee deposit, accounting for 90% of the total number of travel agencies. The total amount of refundable deposits reached 8 billion yuan, and now 3.462 billion yuan has been refunded. From the feedback, the policy of withdrawing margin effectively eased the pressure of cash flow.

In addition, we work with many parties to solve the difficulties for the cultural and tourism enterprises. First, we have promoted the introduction of supportive policies. We have closely communicated with the national development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of finance, the peoples Bank of China, the Ministry of human resources and social security, the State Administration of Taxation and other departments, and actively promoted the introduction of supportive policies that benefit the culture and tourism industry, covering five aspects: financial support, financial policies, tax deduction, cost reduction, and government services, especially for the culture and tourism industry To extend the carrying over period of the loss of tourism enterprises in 2020, to exempt the income from value-added tax, urban maintenance and construction tax and education surcharges from the income from providing cultural, sports, tourism and entertainment services, and not to blindly take out loans, cut off loans, squeeze loans and other special policies. Second, increase financial support. On February 6, in cooperation with the national development and Reform Commission, the first batch of investment plans within the central budget of the cultural tourism promotion project in 2020 were issued, with a total of 3.337 billion yuan allocated, supporting 343 tourism infrastructure and public service facilities projects. Third, enrich online services. In order to facilitate the cultural and tourism enterprises to understand the measures of poverty alleviation issued by the central government and all regions in time, our ministry classifies these policies on the official website of the ministry according to the policies and measures of different regions and types, so as to facilitate the enterprises to query.

CCTV reporter:

Today, you are more concerned about the news that the Tokyo Olympic Games may be cancelled. You also see that there are many track and field events and ball games have been cancelled or postponed. Does the State Administration of sport have a statistics on the impact of the epidemic on the sports industry? What are the next steps? Thank you.

Peng Weiyong:

Thank you for your question. This epidemic has a great impact on the sports industry. First of all, in the sports competition and performance industry, it should be comprehensively adjusted, especially involving many international events, such as the Asian Indoor Track and Field Championships, the Diving World Cup series, and the qualification pre selection of some items of the Tokyo Olympic Games. These events are postponed or held in other places. Our domestic football, basketball, volleyball Other professional leagues have also been postponed, including the Asian Championship and the top 40 football matches. More than 50 marathon events loved by everyone in China have been affected, which has a great impact on the development of the competition and performance industry. Second, sports venues are listed and closed. Outdoor fitness venues, stadiums and sports training institutions have been closed. It has a great impact on the fitness and leisure industry, sports training industry and sports venue service industry. Third, affected by the epidemic situation, the sports goods manufacturing industry has been delayed, which has different impacts on some sports goods manufacturing enterprises.

In the face of the epidemic situation, the General Administration of sports, with its mission on its shoulders and spirit of struggle, has taken active measures in the following aspects: first, actively carrying out the pilot work of national sports consumption cities. We will accelerate the development of supporting policies such as security and opening up of natural resources for sports events, promote the reform of the associations substantiation, and release more sports resources. Second, we should encourage local innovation support policies, including increasing government procurement, using sports industry guidance funds, arranging special support funds, etc. for example, Shanghai recently introduced 12 support measures, including event subsidies, venue rent reduction, etc., which are very hard core. Third, we should encourage enterprises to innovate and develop. We should use new technologies such as big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, 5g and blockchain to cultivate new formats such as digital sports, online fitness and online training. We will foster new models and formats of the sports industry and help improve its quality and upgrade. Thank you.

Reporter of China Enterprise News:

We know that the daily services of accommodation industry and catering industry are all face-to-face, so it is difficult to prevent and control them. What are the measures for such enterprises while organizing epidemic prevention and control? In the process of returning to work and production, what specific guidance measures are there to guide them to return to work and production? Thank you.

Xian Guoyi:

We can see that these measures not only provide safety guidance and relevant guarantee for enterprises to return to work, but also enhance consumer confidence. From what we have monitored, at present, the catering and accommodation industry is gradually returning to work, and the enterprise income has also picked up. The return to work rate of the 20 large-scale chain catering enterprises we mainly contact has reached 57%; the return to work rate of the accommodation industry has also reached more than 50%. Of course, the way to return to work is not the same due to different business types. For example, the resumption of the catering industry is mainly in the form of takeout. Yesterday, the number of takeout in Wuhan reached 130000. Some low-risk areas of accommodation, catering hall food are also back to work, but in the process of return to work, we should do a good job in protection, scattered dining. Thank you.

China Daily:

Recently, some provinces and cities issued the work guide to guide the opening of tourist attractions, and scenic spots around the country began to open gradually. Some scenic spots even appeared to travel in groups. Public health experts expressed concern about this. Does the Ministry of culture and tourism have unified requirements for the opening of national tourist attractions? Thank you.

Liu Kehzi:

We have also taken note of the relevant situation and paid close attention to it. At present, all localities are doing a good job in scientific and effective epidemic prevention and control, and at the same time, promoting the division and classification in an orderly manner, and accurately returning to work and production. The scenic spots in some areas are opened orderly under the leadership of the local Party committee and government. The tourist attraction has the characteristics of strong personnel gathering and great mobility. Under the leadership of the local Party committee and government, the restoration and opening of the tourist attraction should adhere to the principle of division and classification, and comprehensively evaluate the opening conditions and necessity of the tourist attraction according to the general requirements of epidemic prevention and control, which is not suitable for one size fits all. The opening of scenic spots in high-risk areas of the epidemic is suspended, and the opening of scenic spots in medium and low-risk areas of the epidemic is decided by the local Party committee and government.

Yesterday, the relevant departments and bureaus of the Ministry of culture and tourism issued the guidelines for the prevention and control of epidemic situation in the resumption of opening up of tourist attractions, guiding the flow control, aggregation prevention and strict protection of tourist attractions, focusing on the health monitoring and management of employees in the scenic spots, the prevention and control of public health and venues in the scenic spots, the management of tourist attractions, and the handling of abnormal situations, so as to promote the implementation of epidemic prevention and control in the scenic spots, and steadily We will do a good job in restoring openness. Thank you.

Daily economic news:

Peng Weiyong:

Thank you for your questions and your concern for the development of the ice and snow industry. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, our bureau has attached great importance to and paid attention to the operation of the ice and snow industry. Here are three comparisons. One is the best snow season and the shortest business. As you know, the snowfall in some areas this year is more than that in previous years. For ski resorts, it is a better thing to reduce artificial snowfall and operation cost. But since the outbreak, ski resorts around the country have been closed on January 24, which greatly reduced the operation time. The second is the most ski resorts and the least traffic. In recent years, affected by the favorable policies, the enthusiasm of social subjects to invest in ski resorts continues to increase. So far, more than 770 ski resorts have been built. Affected by the epidemic, the passenger flow of these ski resorts has fallen precipitously. The reception number of ice and snow venues in Hebei Province has dropped 2.78 million times compared with 2019, which has a great impact on ski resorts. Third, the most adequate preparation and the worst market performance. At the end of last year, the opening of Beijing Zhangjiakou high speed railway has played a great role in the ski resorts along the line. The ski resorts along the line are confident slowly. They have made full preparations in terms of manpower, material resources and environment, and the investment is also large. However, the sudden epidemic makes the market performance as poor as winter, and the ski resorts lose a lot. In the face of this situation, we are still very concerned. We mainly take the following measures.

First, we will implement the plan of one hundred cities, one thousand ice, intensify the construction of ice and snow venues, popularize ice and snow sports for young people, further implement the action plan of 300 million people participating in ice and snow sports, and increase the number of people participating in ice and snow sports.

The second is to guide the innovation measures of sports departments around the country and make precise measures. For example, Beijing has given water and electricity subsidies to skating and skiing venues, and Jilin has given special subsidies to tourist ski resorts.

Third, give full play to the role of Chinas ice and snow industry alliance, build a bridge between the government and enterprises, do a good job in industry services, and innovate the product structure and operation mode of the four seasons operation of ski resorts. Through the joint efforts of government and enterprises, the spring of ski resort will surely come. Thank you.

China News Agency:

Xian Guoyi:

Thank you. Domestic service requires domestic service staff to enter the consumers home. The characteristics of the industry determine the higher requirements for safety. At present, in addition to professional cleaning, sterilization and other businesses, there are basically no new orders for other businesses such as Yuesao and helpers. But in fact, the peoples demand for domestic service is very strong, especially with the orderly resumption of work in various industries, the elderly and children need to be cared for, and the demand for domestic service is more urgent.

The Ministry of commerce actively supports the domestic service industry to return to work safely and orderly on the premise of complying with the requirements of zoning and grading, precise prevention and control. First, the industry association was organized to formulate and issue the guidelines for the prevention and control of the epidemic situation in the domestic service industry, which proposed that domestic service personnel should be isolated, registered, certified and other service specifications. It provides guidance for the operation of domestic service enterprises during the epidemic prevention and control period. Second, arrange local business departments to coordinate the provision of protective equipment for domestic enterprises, assist in providing isolation places, and assist in the implementation of relevant support policies. Third, the Ministry of commerce is studying to provide consumers with information about the health of domestic service staff. This query service will be based on the mobile app household credit check developed by the Ministry of Commerce in 2019. At present, the main function of the mobile app of housekeeping credit check is to collect the identity, criminal record, health examination status, training and employment information of housekeeping server. With the authorization of housekeeping server, consumers can query these information according to law. Recently, the Ministry of Commerce, with the support of the health and Health Commission and other relevant departments, has developed and built a health management module for housekeeping service staff on the housekeeping credit check app, which is to be officially launched in the near future. The real name certified housekeeper can independently authorize to inquire whether they are confirmed patients, suspected patients, close contacts in the observation period, and show the inquiry results to consumers voluntarily. This will help the management and control of the community, the management of domestic enterprises, help consumers rest assured, and promote the resumption of domestic service industry. Thank you.

Reporter of Hong Kong China assessment press:

After China novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak, some overseas Chinese tourists, especially Hubei tourists, are staying overseas. What help measures have the Ministry of culture and tourism adopted for this part of the stranded tourists? How are they doing now? Thank you.

Liu Kehzi:

After the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia, the Ministry of culture and tourism attached great importance to the organization of overseas tourism teams, and made a comprehensive verification of the information of tourists from overseas in Hubei. We ask each group to take the initiative to contact with our local embassy and consulate, and do a good job in the information filing of overseas tourism groups. At the same time, we informed the General Administration of customs and other departments of relevant information in a timely manner. On the one hand, we ensured the safe return of overseas tourism teams, and on the other hand, we assisted in the entry prevention of tourists. According to statistics, after suspending the operation of team tourism business by travel agencies and online tourism enterprises on January 24, the number of overseas team tourists reached 250000 at that time. How to make such a large-scale tourism team return to China safely, orderly and smoothly is also a major challenge for us. With the strong support of foreign affairs, civil aviation and other relevant departments, they will continue to return in an orderly manner through charter flights and flight rescheduling. In this process, Chinese tourists staying abroad are facing various pressures of economic and psychological anxiety. In the face of their urgent demand to return to China, what we have to do is to try our best to arrange their return to China. We think that no matter where you are, the motherland is always behind you. Finally, under the coordination of relevant departments such as foreign affairs, civil aviation and customs, the return work of overseas team tourists was promoted in an orderly manner. As of yesterday, there are less than 90 overseas group tourists left. Thank you.

CCTV reporter:

Affected by the epidemic, the first test match of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games was cancelled. Does this have any impact on the follow-up test match? Is there time for next years test event? What is the impact of the epidemic on the preparations for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games?

According to international practice, a series of test events should be arranged 10 to 24 months before each Olympic Games, and Beijing is no exception. According to the plan of Beijing test events, 20 events have been arranged, the first of which is February this year, and the others are held in the 2020-2021 season. The cancellation of this event is affected by the epidemic situation, which is also the reason for protecting the health of athletes and referees. For the following There should be no impact on the test events. We are preparing for the subsequent test events according to the plan.

In addition, we are actively communicating with the International Snow Federation. In March 2021, the International Snow Federation womens Alpine Skiing World Cup slide and super big turn competition will be held as one of the test events of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games. At the same time, the International Snow Federation will try to arrange a mens alpine skiing competition as the test event of the Beijing Olympic Games. In fact, the test events are mainly about the test site, organization and some technical problems. The alpine skiing competition of the 14th National Winter Games from January 16 to 20 this year has already been held in the national alpine skiing center of Yanqing, which is the first competition held in this new Olympic track. During the competition, technical experts and medical officials of the International Snow Federation were very satisfied with the snow condition of the new track, the competition organization and mountain operation.

In the face of the sudden outbreak, on the one hand, the Beijing Winter Olympic Organizing Committee strictly implemented various prevention and control measures to ensure the health of staff. On the other hand, we need to strengthen overall coordination and promote all preparatory work. At present, most of the venues and other infrastructure construction have been successfully resumed, and internal work such as planning, system development and desktop rehearsal is being stepped up. Some important events and conferences have been adjusted. For example, the world broadcaster conference is held by video. The Organizing Committee of the Winter Olympic Games participates in the annual meeting of the Information Committee of the International Olympic Committee. It communicates with the top officials of the International Olympic Committee through video, holds high-level meetings, and discusses some important issues in the preparatory work. Therefore, the preparations for the Winter Olympics are advancing in an orderly manner and have not been affected more. I believe that with the joint efforts of all of you, the preparations for the Winter Olympic Games will be completed in high quality and on time. Thank you.

Cover reporter:

We know that affected by the epidemic, including the catering industry, the accommodation industry, and the housekeeping industry have come up with some new ideas. Some restaurants have turned their signature dishes into takeaways. What do you think of the Ministry of Commerce? The next step is to help these enterprises innovate their ways of development and stimulate emerging consumer demand. Thank you.

Xian Guoyi:

The epidemic has given birth to new service models and accelerated their development. We have noticed four obvious changes. One is to accelerate the development from offline to online. The digitalization degree of life service industry has been greatly improved. Enterprises or develop their own digital platform, or cooperate with large e-commerce platforms, and carry out business development, customer communication, order fulfillment, logistics and distribution management through the Internet. Second, the standardization of services and the promotion of industrialization. At the same time, the central kitchen serving multiple catering stores and catering enterprises is developing rapidly. The standardized fresh food distribution, the take out of some brand dishes you just mentioned, and the standardized semi-finished product distribution are growing rapidly. Third, industry integration and mutual assistance. Among different industries, platform enterprises and merchants hold a group to keep warm, integrate and support each other. For example, the employees of catering enterprises provide services for express delivery, wholesale and retail enterprises, and the accommodation enterprises provide isolation places for the employees of other enterprises returning to work. Fourth, promote contactless distribution in an all-round way. Some catering take out platforms and catering enterprises timely launched services such as contactless delivery, peace of mind delivery, mobile canteen, Chefs live delivery and so on. In the process of reservation, production and distribution, consumers should minimize direct contact with employees.

At the same time of developing new business model, enterprises are still trying to adjust their business structure. For example, some domestic enterprises actively expand or expand professional cleaning, disinfection and sterilization services in medical institutions, isolation points, public places, enterprises, etc. when the home service is affected and carried out slowly. Some domestic enterprises are unable to carry out offline training and conduct online training. We have learned that online training has become the main source of income for many large domestic enterprises during the epidemic. In addition, some life service enterprises and e-commerce platforms also actively provide service guarantees for the anti epidemic front line, some of which are free. According to incomplete statistics, by the end of mid February, catering and accommodation enterprises had provided more than 400000 meals and more than 10000 rooms free of charge for the first-line anti epidemic personnel in Wuhan and other places. These mode innovation and business adjustment are conducive to meeting the needs of the people and even the front line of anti epidemic in the context of epidemic prevention and control, to self rescue and development of the industry, and also reflect the new trend of informatization, quality, convenience and integration of life service industry, which is actively supported by the Ministry of Commerce. We will further study and promote the digital construction of these industries, improve the circulation network, promote the deregulation service reform, and promote the recovery, quality and capacity expansion of service consumption as soon as possible after the epidemic. Thank you.

CCTV reporter:

This epidemic situation makes more people pay attention to and participate in physical fitness. What new hot spots and opportunities has the epidemic brought to the sports industry? What measures will the General Administration of sport take to guide? Thank you.

Peng Weiyong:

The epidemic really brought opportunities and gave birth to a hot spot in the sports industry, which is the integration of online and offline. This trend is particularly obvious in sports training, fitness and leisure, venue services and other formats. The rapid development of online training, live fitness and other new models has fostered the online consumption habits of sports consumers. According to statistics, the average number of spectators of a sports broadcasting platform during the Spring Festival increased by 151.4% year on year. We will also vigorously develop Internet plus sports, promote e-commerce platform to provide sports consumption services, and support the development of intelligent sports events mainly including ice snow, basketball, soccer and racing events. The continuous growth of these new business forms, new models and new consumption will certainly play a greater role in promoting the development of sports industry. Thank you.

Reporter of Shenzhen satellite TV:

At the same time of gradually opening some business places, almost all places have excluded the stadium. How about the resumption of production of sports enterprises? What are the difficulties? Thank you.

Peng Weiyong:

At present, the resumption of work in sports enterprises is steadily advancing, showing three characteristics. First, the progress of resumption of work varies from place to place. In some provinces, the return to work rate has reached 75%, while in others, it is less than 30%. Second, the staff arrival rate is not high in some enterprises, with 10% at most and 25% at least. Third, the progress of different types of enterprises is different. In the sports goods manufacturing industry, the productivity of enterprises with high level of mechanization and intelligence recovers relatively fast. In the sports service industry, the return rate of main online businesses is high, while that of sports fitness, sports training and sports goods sales enterprises is low.

There are some difficulties in the process of resumption. There are two main points: first, the main business has not been restored, which is the main factor affecting resumption. For example, many sports events have been cancelled or postponed, and there is no business for the event operation enterprises to start, so resumption is relatively difficult. There are also gyms, stadiums and sports training institutions. Even after returning to work, it is difficult to have passenger flow, so it is also difficult to return to work. Secondly, it is difficult for the employees to return to work, the logistics is not smooth, the upstream and downstream enterprises of the industrial chain are not fully back to work, and the characteristics of the high concentration of industry personnel restrict the return to work of sports enterprises. This is the two main difficulties of resumption of production. In the next step, we will closely follow up and work closely with relevant departments to guide all localities to return to work in an orderly and classified manner. Thank you.

Reporter of Oriental TV:

Affected by the novel coronavirus pneumonia, the public cultural institutions and cultural institutions across the country have closed measures. What are the arrangements for the opening of these institutions with the resumption of work in various industries? Thank you.

Liu Kehzi:

The State Administration of cultural relics is about to issue relevant guidance, which requires: first, to make accurate policy in different regions and levels, and to restore the opening of low-risk areas in an orderly manner with the approval of local governments. For medium risk areas, outdoor open places can be gradually reopened. In principle, closed indoor exhibition halls, exhibition halls and other areas are temporarily closed, while for high-risk areas, they are temporarily closed. In principle, open units in low and medium risk areas do not receive group visits. Second, the administrative department of cultural relics is required to speed up the progress in the examination and approval of projects and the allocation of funds, and give priority to ensuring the return to work of capital construction, archaeological and salvage cultural relics protection projects that cooperate with major national construction projects. Third, the cultural and Museum units are required to strictly implement the epidemic prevention and control measures, do a good job in personnel health monitoring, safety protection, ventilation and disinfection of places, and take measures such as real name appointment, time-sharing reception, wrong time admission, etc., to reduce the density of people flow. The fourth is to require cultural institutions to establish a working mechanism for epidemic prevention and control, recovery and opening up, and resumption of work. Make clear the specific responsibilities of each department and link, develop emergency plans, carry out drills in advance, and ensure that once an epidemic is found, the prevention and control of emergency response work can be done well.

I would like to add the question about group tourists coming back from abroad just answered by a reporter. In the process of arranging tourists to return home, our tour guide team plays a key role. They stick to their posts, appease tourists and play an important role in the process of tourists return. In order to further strengthen the care and care of tour guides and team leaders, the Ministry of culture and tourism will issue a notice in the near future, asking all regions to put the stability of tour guides and team leaders in an important position, earnestly safeguard the rights and interests of tour guides, widely carry out online free training, actively coordinate with industry organizations to exempt tour guides dues, establish a care mechanism for tour guides, and respond to tour guides concerns in a timely manner We will do a good job in providing policy services and helping people with difficulties. We also hope that through the above measures, we will make every effort to maintain the stability of the tour guide team during the epidemic and store energy for the recovery and development of the tourism industry. Thank you.

Thank you. Todays live Q & A is here. Next, lets welcome Mr. Feng Luzhao, researcher of China CDC, to introduce health knowledge.
