For more on Beijing's rising parking fees, we're joined by Li Yong from China Association of International Trade. Thanks for joining us, Mr. Li.

Q1: Raising parking fees are the latest effort by Beijing, to tackle the city's notorious traffic jams. Many experts believe the move will increase the cost of driving and encourage people to use public transport. As well, experts believe the additional revenue should be put towards improving the city's public transportation system. What's your take?

Q2: Increasing parking fees downtown will help reduce the number of cars traveling in the city center. But drivers who park their cars near subway stations in the suburbs, are expected to see a reduction in parking fees. Do you think rates should be based on location?
