How many homes do Chinese own?

Popularity 1Viewed 380 times 2019-2-3 22:47 |System category:Life

Yesterday on a public bus I heard a schoolboy calling via WeChat his classmate for an outing.
"Hey, so-and-so, do you like to visit (a name of place)?"
"Yes, I like that."
"Where are you now? You can take (a bus route) to be there."
"I am at home now."
"Which home?"
The last sentence made my mouth open.
The voice of the other side gave a name, which is a high-class residential community in our city.
Then I realized that now people in our city seem to have more than one residence, they live in the one near their workplace or school of their children during weekdays, then change to live in another at the weekend and holidays, which is their permanent home.

    Maybe you are right, I don't know too much about world politics, But as far as China is concerned, I do not seem to have heard of any government agencies are required to do something as the follow-up action of the Davos or simialr meetings. But if it is the case of a speech by a big boss of China, then you can find that all levels of the public must be involved to take action.
