【老广贺春】Welcome back! The first high-speed train with migrant workers reached Guangzhou
NewYearinLingnanAt 4:02 PM on January 29, Train D2991, fully loaded with 618 Guangxi migrant workers, slowly entered Guangzhou South Railway Station. This is the first high-speed train that returned to Guangzhou this year, carrying migrant workers.
Zhou, from Gongcheng Yao Autonomous County, Guilin, Guangxi, works in a textile factory in Haizhu District, Guangzhou. The factory started early this year, so he hurried to resume work. He said: "This is the second year I have taken the special train back to Guangzhou for work. It used to be difficult to get a ticket, but now as long as we sign up in the village, we can take the train to Guangzhou for free. How great the policy is!"
There are many other migrant workers like Zhou on this high-speed train and they head for Guangzhou, Dongguan, Zhuhai, and other cities to work and live. They will be a strong supplementary force for the manufacturing and construction industries in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, contributing to the high-quality development of the urban economy.
