Zaobao: 中国社科院倡2020年起逐步落实四天工作制 2030年全国实行
The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (Science and Social Sciences) published a report on Friday (13th), saying that “leisure” has become a key influence of happiness and life satisfaction among residents in the country, and has a significant impact on the quality of life of residents, to a greater extent than income factors. . However, the survey shows that the average leisure time of Chinese people is only half of that of European and American countries, and 40% of respondents said they have no paid annual leave. The Academy of Social Sciences proposes to start a four-day work system in some state-owned enterprises in the eastern region starting from 2020 and gradually expand to the whole country.

...According to the report of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, leisure has become a key influence of residents' happiness and life satisfaction, and the degree is greater than the income factor. At present, there is still much room for improvement in the leisure quality of Chinese residents. The Academy of Social Sciences therefore proposed medium- and long-term reform proposals for the Chinese vacation system, including state-owned large and medium-sized enterprises in some industries in the eastern region starting from 2020, and trials a four-day work system, working 36 hours a week, and then gradually expanding to other companies. By the year 2030, the country will implement a four-day work system.
