On Tuesday, China released a white paper on its legal framework and measures for counter-terrorism, which sums up the characteristics of its counter-terrorism efforts over the past decades and exploration of a path of law-based counter-terrorism work.

Bookings of Chinese tourists for outbound travel during the upcoming Spring Festival holiday have boomed, as the eight-day holiday is expected to become a global Golden Week, serving as a shot in the arm for the global tourism recovery.

This Saturday marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France. A French scholar shared his views of the development of China-France exchanges over the past 60 years and what France's emphasis on strategic autonomy means for China-France and China-EU relations.

Finally, a close look at how a Chinese maestro baritone helps international listeners develop an appreciation for Chinese art songs.
