CNN: Premier Li, my question pertains to the missing airplane of Malaysia Airlines. First of all, our sympathy goes to the families of the passengers and crew members of MH370. It’s day 6 now and there is confusion and frustration. What’s your reaction to the current situation? What is China doing to harness all your resources, civilian, military, satellite imaging to assist in the search and rescue? And down the road, how will this incident impact China’s attitude and policies on opening-up including inbound and outbound tourism? What measures will you take to ensure the safety of Chinese citizens in and outside China? Will you tighten up the already tight security? Thank you.李总理,我的问题属于失踪的马来西亚航空公司的飞机。首先,我们的同情去MH370的乘客和机组人员的家属。现在是第六天,困惑和沮丧。你的反应现状是什么?中国如何利用你所有的资源,民用、军事、卫星成像协助搜救吗?
Down the road means further down the road, as if one is walking down a country road.
As one walks on, different scenes are going to appear, round the corner of the forest or up the mountain slope.
In our example, the CNN reporter wonders what happens next, later on, that is, after the dust has settled – though it perhaps never will for the grieving families.
In other words, in the aftermath of the MH370 tragedy, what’s going to happen? Will Chinese tourists continue to travel abroad in throngs? To Malaysia or, indeed, get on board a Malaysian airliner again, and things of that nature.
They will. But the lessons from MH370 must, somehow, be learned.
