BEIJING: Beijing has started to issue e-vouchers worth about 50 million yuan (US$7mil) to promote consumption in its cultural sector.

The Beijing state-owned cultural assets administration centre on Sunday (May 3) started to issue the vouchers, which will be used for buying books, art performances, tourism, education and entertainment.

Residents in the capital city can get coupons through a WeChat public account and enjoy cash rebates when making payments.
