The State Council issued a circular on Aug 3, to push forward a new five-year extensive mass fitness program, spanning from 2021 to 2025.

According to the circular, the general public will enjoy more convenient physical fitness conditions by 2025, with full coverage of fitness facilities in counties, towns, and administrative villages, and communities within a 15-minute walk. And the sports industry should see a value of 5 trillion yuan accordingly.

In the coming years, over 2,000 sports parks, public fitness centers, and public stadiums will be established or expanded.

Young people, elderly citizens, and disabled people will have more access to public stadiums in an improved environment with barrier-free fitness facilities.

And school stadiums should be open to the public with sound regular COVID-19 prevention and control practices.

A promotion program for youth fitness should be launched, along with sports as a measure to tackle myopia, obesity, and other health issues of the group.

Meanwhile, physical education calls for further improvement, to ensure an hour of sports time both on and off campus on a daily basis.

The circular said the high-end manufacturing sector and modern service industry should be integrated to usher in a modern sports industry system.

In addition, the sports and tourism industries should be combined to increase the supply of products and services in this field, via multiple outdoor projects including winter sports events, hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities.
