And if some strategies, including efforts to popul

larize winter sports in other parts of the country, succeed, people in not only Northea

st China but also in other regions could be seen playing winter sports in a few years time.

In fact, the number of people involved in winter sports has increased drastically in many cities in the

past few years. For example, Shanghai has 15 ice rinks and seven curling tracks. Southern cities such as Gu

angzhou and Shenzhen are making efforts to promote winter sports and achieved some success.

In this sense, winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Gam

The sports industry’s development, to a large extent, is propelled b

 which means the project will provide a large number of jobs to lo

cal communities,” he said. “It is expected that up to 100,000 to 200,000 locals will be d

rawn to the new economic zone after its completion. They will rise out of poverty by working in this zone.”

The bridge was designed to Chinese standards but subjected to local and European standards, and the company g
