Alliance President, Barbara Finamore, discussed with CCTV America about the economic impact of China’s smog alert reactions.
“Under the red alert, the capital banned two million private cars from roads, closed more than two thousand factories and suspended construction work. Schools were also closed. People rushed to stores to buy masks and air purifiers. Alibaba, the online retail giant, reported sales 150 percent higher than normal, with some shortages. Prices for fresh vegetables and fruits have risen too.”
