Abstract

The outbreak of COVID-19 has dramatically impacted all aspects of China’s economic and social life. In the face of the rapid spreading, extensive, and challenging public health emergency since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the CPC Central Committee has taken decisive measures with solid leadership and the whole country has made great efforts to fight against the pandemic. Various efforts to prevent the pandemic spread have been supported by the resumption of business and industrial activities. In response to this crisis, China has introduced a series of emergency measures to protect people’s livelihood, stabilize employment and promote economic recovery and growth.
