BEIJING, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Amid regular COVID-19 control, China is powering ahead in bringing business and life back on track. The following are the latest facts and figures of the week:

-- Middle and primary schools in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have begun their classes in different batches from Sunday.

Universities in the region will also stagger their opening starting Sept. 10.

-- Xinjiang from Wednesday started to reopen outdoor scenic spots to visitors and resumed trans-provincial tours.

To boost the recovery of tourism, scenic areas in Altay Prefecture, Changji Hui Autonomous Prefecture, the Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture of Bayingolin, and other places in Xinjiang are rolling out preferential tourism policies.

-- Beijing has begun resuming on-site job fairs from Tuesday following months of suspension due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The return of on-site job fairs comes as Beijing continues to speed up work resumption and bring its economy back on track.

-- Beijing has been gradually resuming direct inbound flights to the city from eight countries, including Cambodia, Greece, Denmark, Thailand, Austria and Canada, starting Thursday.

Priority will be given to flights from countries with low risk of cross-border infection, where nucleic acid tests have been conducted. Negative COVID-19 test results before boarding will be prerequisite for passengers of Beijing-bound flights.

-- The construction of the Universal Beijing Resort's main buildings has been completed.

The resort will include the highly anticipated Universal Studios Beijing theme park, the Universal CityWalk and two hotels. Construction of the iconic globe model at the entrance of the park is expected to be completed by the end of September.

-- An economic and technological development area in Beijing's Daxing District has launched a "cloud" platform to help local hi-tech companies recruit professionals from around the world amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the recruitment platform, 104 companies in Yizhuang, also known as E-Town, will hire more than 1,000 professionals from around the globe to fill various vacancies including key technicians and department heads and those of higher levels. Enditem
