China announces major plan to promote Mandarin

  • In a major development, China announced the major plan to promote the Mandarin language

  • A cabinet note issued by the State council states that the use of Mandarin remains inadequate and unfavourable and hence steps need to be taken to meet the demands of the modern economy

  • This goal to ensure 85 per cent of citizens use Mandarin by 2025 is in line with the larger goal of china to make Mandarin virtually universal in rural areas and among ethnic minorities

  • Time and again the move of promoting Mandarin has faced opposition from the Mongolian region's ethnic minorities

  • China has suppressed these protests ruthlessly in the name of meeting the demands of the Modern Economy and the need of national unity
