Beijing Citizens Still Keen on Trips Abroad

BEIJING, July 5 -- Beijing people are keeping up their enthusiasm for going abroad for tours or study this summer, although the Spring Festival and Chinese Lunar New Year are usually the busy times for such trips.

Officers of the Beijing exit-entry administration said about 1, 000 people a day are applying to go abroad recently, about the same number as at the Spring Festival period. The number even rose to 1,400 one day, they said.

They attributed the increase to rising incomes, simplified procedures and abolition of the guarantee system. Moreover, elementary and middle school students are also going abroad for summer camp programs.

Statistics show that the administration approved only several hundred exit applications annually before China's opening up some 20 years ago, yet now 200,000 people leave the country each year for various purposes.
