HAIKOU Cheap Alex Tuch Shirt , Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- A new stretch of high-speed railway (HSR) in Southern China's Hainan Province began operation on Wednesday, making it the world's first HSR to circle an island.

A bullet train set off from Haikou, the capital of the island province, at 9:40 a.m., to traverse the 345-km western track of the loop line, which links six counties to join the eastern track in Sanya City, a beach resort on the island's southern coast.

The western line has 16 stations. The first train finished the entire journey at 1:55 p.m..

The 308-km eastern part was put into operation at the end of 2010 Cheap Nate Schmidt Shirt , linking Haikou to Sanya, with a designed speed of up to 250 km per hour. It passes Boao, a scenic town that is the site of the annual Boao Forum for Asia.

Construction of the western track began in September 2013 and cost 27 billion yuan (4.23 billion U.S. dollars).

With a land area of 35,400 square km, Hainan is slightly larger than Belgium. A popular destination for beach lovers, it is expected to receive 47 million visitors this year.

Hou Zhenmei and her husband were among the passengers on the first train. She told Xinhua that their daughter bought the last two tickets for the journey.

"It is exciting," she said. "We like to see the sea."

Xia Feng Cheap Jonathan Marchessault Shirt , assistant to the president of the China Institute for Reform and Development, believes that the new line could boost tourism in the western part of the island.

Haikou and Sanya attract more than 60 percent of the island's tourists.

"The new line will offer travellers more choices, giving them easier access to the western part, which will boost development there," Xia said.

Infrastructure in the west was lagged behind the rest of the island. "There is a disparity between house prices in the east and those in the west," he continued. "So the line will create opportunities for real estate developers."

Wang Sheng, chief of Hainan Provincial Office of Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Cheap Brad Hunt Shirt , noted that the eastern line had transported many dignitaries to the Boao Forum for Asia. "The new line will take them to more parts of the island," he said.

According to state-owned China Railway Corp., there is 19,000 kilometers of HSR in China, the longest in the world.

In south China's Guangdong province, Futian railway station, believed to be the largest underground railway station in Asia Cheap William Karlsson Shirt , also opened on Wednesday.

The station, roughly the size of 21 football pitches and able to accommodate 3,000 passengers, is a key hub linking Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. The travel time for high speed trains from Guangzhou and Shenzhen to Hong Kong have been shortened to 30 minutes and 15 minutes respectively.

PARIS, July 25 (Xinhua) -- French President Emmanuel Maconstarted his battle against unemployment with a positive note.

The country reported 0.3-percent fall in joblessness rate inJune, one month after he took office Cheap David Perron Shirt , according to labor ministry'sdata released on Tuesday.

Last month, 3.483 million people were registered without job orless 10,900 jobless claims compared to May's figures, the ministrysaid.

As the Vancouver Canucks held their first practice in Shanghai before their exhibition game with the Los Angeles Kings, a dense fog settled over the ice. The humidity in the arena was high and the players could barely see the puck.

Large dehumidifiers were rolled in and the mist eventually cleared Cheap Luca Sbisa Shirt , but the National Hockey League has perhaps a bigger visibility problem in China — a country with little tradition of winter sports, hockey included. The league is hoping to turn that around with a major push in the country, beginning with its first two preseason games between the Canucks and Kings in Shanghai and Beijing this week.

The timing couldn't be better for the NHL. With Beijing set to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, the government is putting a massive emphasis on developing winter sports. Hockey training programs and youth leagues are expanding across China, and the nation's first professional team, the Kunlan Red Star, plays in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.

With interest on the rise Cheap Oscar Dansk Shirt , the NHL believes it now has an opportunity to crack a market that has traditionally been more fixated on basketball and soccer.

""You don't quite know what to expect the first time the game is coming here, but I've always believed that hockey is a game you need to see live,"" Los Angeles Kings coach John Stevens said after Wednesday's practice. ""And once you see it live, you become hooked as a fan.""

A glance at the numbers shows just how far the NHL has to go. According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, China has just 1,101 registered players, compared with nearly 556 Cheap Oscar Lindberg Shirt ,000 in the United States and more than 631,000 in Canada.

And the fan base in a nation of more than 1.2 billion people is still in its infancy. On Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, the NHL has just 47,000 followers, some of whom are obviously new to the sport. (One posted a question about the temperature of the arena and what was suitable to wear to the game.) The NBA, which hosted its first preseason exhibition games in China in 2004 Cheap Cody Eakin Shirt , boasts more than 33 million followers on Weibo.

""We're learning a lot about how to market here and we're learning a lot about how tickets are sold,"" says David Proper, the NHL's executive vice president of media and international strategy. ""We're just viewing this as Year 1 of a multi-year project and in Year 1 we may not knock it out of the park but .
