Students to be vital cogs in travel sectordents born betwe

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.

Beijing will not sacrifice forex reserves to defend its currency, analysts say

China would rather rely on market-oriented forces to determine the renminbi’s value than defend its currency by d

No evidence was found to show Chinese monetary authority intervention in foreign exchange markets over the past sev

US policy has done a disservice to the international com

munity’s efforts to advance the Middle East peace process and the remarks by the president’s son-in-law and a

dviser Jared Kushner indicating that an upcoming US peace plan does not include a two-state solution with the Palestinians sh

ows the US is hoping to undermine the international consensus built on that premise. Given its complex and chronic nat

ure, there is no quick remedy to the decades-old enmity between Israelis and Palestinians. But both sides need to exe

rcise the utmost restraint so as to avoid sparking another vicious circle of violence.

Meanwhile, the latest bloodshed should convince the inte

rnational community of the urgency of finding a way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian co

nflict. The US is in no position to act as mediator, but it should avoid doing anything to make the situ

ation worse. And notwithstanding the US stance, the consensus on a two-state solution needs to be shored up and grea

ter efforts need to be made to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli issue through dialogue and negotiations.
