Is the Chinese mainla上海千花网e main focus for your

Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years

ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom that could help us. The mainla上海千花网女神会所

nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have

上海千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour

se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.上海千花网女神会所

Do you design especially for the mainland market?

We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c上海千花网

are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol

d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we上海千花网

will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.

The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?

上海千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We

do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin

ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod上海千花网

uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K

上海千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist

s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?

The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These上海千花网

influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.

We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces

上海千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r

ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.

What’s your best-selling piece?上海千花网女神会所

Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,

but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel

ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co上海千花网

ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha上海千花网女神会所

nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.

Komatsu grabbed the o上海千花网d worked very hard.

I spent over three hours a day practicing, but to be a clapper talk artist, per

formers must first memorize the lines, talk with rhythm, and gradually increase speed,” he上海千花网

says. To fully understand the lines, foreign performers have to learn a lot about Chinese culture.

上海千花网女神会所After graduating from the university in 2016, Komatsu first tried his han

d at business but failed. So, he worked as a Japanese teacher in a language training school.

Despite the pressure of work and life, Komatsu performs clapper talk with his teacher a上海千花网女神会所

nd fellow senior apprentices in theaters, communities, campuses and parks, though most of the performances are free.

Now, in his team, there are performers from Japan, Germany, Sweden and Britain.

上海千花网In August 2018, Komatsu decided to go back to Japan. However, he returned to Beijing half a year later.

Explaining why he came back, he says: “I missed my f

riends, Chinese culture and food too much, and life would be boring without them.”上海千花网女神会所

Komatsu has now decided to spend the rest of his life in China and continue with his hobby.

上海千花网He says: “I hope more Japanese will visit and learn more about China, so as to strengthen the friendship between the two countries.”

What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he b上海千花网

roke with his Cubist painting, but some also has to do with the fact his interests extended far beyond painting.

Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art world for d上海千花网女神会所

ecades, paving the way for many of the important artistic movements of the last century.

As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picass上海千花网

o’s poetry and other written works are often overlooked in discussions of his long and varied career.

The artist did not begin to write until the age of 53. His literary endeavors r上海千花网女神会所

For instance, an electric ca上海千花网run 350 kilomet

ced to 2.5, according to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.上海千花网

He added that the proposed policy encourages better technology as more efficient power consumption will earn more credits.

上海千花网女神会所Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, es

pecially international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.

Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy envi上海千花网

ronment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.

The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will

上海千花网女神会所be made in China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.

So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.

The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 units上海千花网

during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.

上海千花网女神会所The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.

They would still be considered fossil-fueled but re-classified as “low fuel consu

mption passenger vehicles” and thus will incur less negative points than traditional vehicles.

Under the current system, automakers in China are obliged to make up for a portion of the negative points they incur whe上海千花网女神会所

n they produce internal combustion engine vehicles with points won for producing new energy vehicles.

Analysts said the revision could see more traditional vehicles replaced with hybrids, because when automakers prod

uce hybrids. The proposed change came as a surprise, some experts and industry officials said, because the gove上海千花网女神会所

rnment has never before given any preferential treatment for hybrid technology.

“The new proposed policy is a roundabout way to promote hybrid cars,” said Cui in a social media post.

According to Zhang Shu上海千花网 of the Yantai Ar

rt Museum, Peking Opera became popular in Yantai back in the 19th century after some famous Peking Opera maste

rs performed there, including Tan Xinpei (1847-1917), the founder of Tan-style performance.上海千花网品茶微信

Tan, who gave three shows in Yantai in 1868, was the first Peking Opera master who performed in Yantai.

上海千花网Peking Opera master Zhou Xinfang (1895-1975) made his debut performance in Yantai in 1907 when he was 12 years old.

After that he performed in Yantai six times from 1907 to 1931, which made him a household name in the city.

“Then, Peking Opera troupes which toured the country stopped by the docks at the上海千花网品茶微信

port in Yantai. as the city was regarded as a place which could test the popularity of the artists,” says Zhang.

During the summer camp, the Yantai Art Museum will also hold Peking O

上海千花网pera exhibitions, displaying artworks based on the old art form, including paper-cutting, in

k paintings, sculptures and facial makeup, which introduce the history and characters of Peking Opera.

On Aug 7, the exhibition will move to Beijing.上海千花网

Meanwhile, according to Zhang Zuling, the director of Yantai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, Yantai has 10 pr

上海千花网品茶微信ofessional Peking Opera troupes, which give over 1,000 shows each year in the city.

In 2018, a project was launched by the government to promote Peking Opera in Yantai, especially among the young generation.

An original Peking Opera production Liberation of Yantai, which chronicles Yantai’s上海千花网品茶微信

liberation during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-1945), was premiered by Yantai Pekin

上海千花网g Opera Company, and was also staged at the eighth China Peking Opera Art Festival in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.

Speaking about the project, Zhang Zuling says: “In 2018, over 80 million tourists came to Y上海千花网品茶微信

antai. It’s a great platform to revitalize the old art form among the young students.”

Shanghai strengthens 上海千花网tionsuangzhou’s Tianhe a

Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub

With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信

rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an

international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t

上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.

Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove

rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信

By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj

上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city

‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis

trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网

eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.

上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen

t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.

More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网

sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go

上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.

With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c

alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信

llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr

eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di

strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信

As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie

s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u

p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信

Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent

of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.

By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent

and the country’s regulators are looking at ways to further liberalize its potential.

Immediately after the three-day Dragon Boat Festival at the beginning of June, during which, according to China’s Ministry of C上海千花网

上海千花网品茶微信washing liquid value deal on Tmall, one of the country’s biggest e-commerce platforms.

She said the sales day was not just about saving money, but also about en

joying better products. “For example, wet toilet tissue is quite expensive if you buy it in

the supermarket one pack at a time, but it is much more affordable during the sales day if you buy in bulk,” she said.上海千花网

Will the maximum pr上海千花网ed on China take effec

Using maximum pressure to achieve its goals is a trick frequently used by some in the United States for international negotiations cal

上海千花网led “the art of trading”. Its main feature is using the means of multifaceted attacks and unlimited requirements while at the same time gaming against its opponent in m

ultiple issues that cross different fields, and then resorting to selected compromising moves to achieve the goals of core interests, to maintain hegemony through power, and to defeat the opponent t上海千花网

hrough bullying and deception. Some people in the US think that “maximum pressure” is extremely powerful, and decidedly useful when dealing with China.上海千花网

Is the “maximum pressure” measure really effective? In dealing with some small and weak countries, the US government has arbitrarily waved the big stick of sanctions and relied on its power and maximum pressure to impose its own interests. Some countries, shadowed by the powerful economic and political pressur上海千花网

e from the US, either because of a lack of overall strength or because of long-term dependence on the US, have been forced by the US to make compromises in accordance with the require

上海千花网ments of the US in negotiations, and they have to quiet down and let the US get what it wants. This is a situation that happens often and inevitably leads some people in the US to form the opi

nion that all countries, including China, will be afraid of the maximum pressure strategy and will certainly yield and surrender under their powerful pressure.

• Can trade protection make the “return of the manufacturing industry” to the US possible?

上海千花网女神会所Since the Trump administration came to power, it has put forward the proposal of “buying US goods and hiring US workers”, emphasizing the “return of the manufacturing industry”. Some people in the US

offered preferential policies to enterprises that came back to the US to set up factories. For those enterprises that moved their factories abroad, they were threatened with tariffs, forcing ente

rprises to return to the US for production. Can these trade protectionist practices really enable the US to achieve a return of the manufacturing industry?上海千花网女神会所

Whether the return of the manufacturing industry can be achieved depends first on the reasons behind the outflow of manufacturing from the US.

From the perspective of the US domestic economy, its manufacturing outflow is determined by how the local economy works.上海千花网女神会所

In the process of economic globalization, US multinational companies have transferred more and more industries to developing countries to a

chieve maximum profitability. Through industrial transfer, they reduce costs, expand markets, divert pollution, and i

ncrease the profitability of capital. At the same time, more and more capital has left the real economic sector with lo

wer profit margins, and turned to the financial sector to engage in financial speculation, leading to the hollowing out and virtualization of the US economy.

• Can economic and trade friction promote US economic prosperity?

Since 2019, the employment rate and the market value of the US stock market have remained high. In the first quarter, the actual GDP annualized quarter-on-quarter

preliminary value was 3.2 percent. Since the introduction of economic and trade friction by the US against China, the US economy seems to be

doing well. This has made some people in the US confident about constantly escalating trade friction with China. But to o

bjectively evaluate the so-called prosperity of the US economy requires a comprehensive and rational analysis.

Based on some indicators, the US economy is prospering. However, whether it will continue to prosper depends on the

state of capital accumulation. In the first quarter of 2019, the seasonally adjusted fixed-capita

l investment growth rate of the US private sector was only 1 percent, significantly lower than growth rates in 20

17 and 2018. According to US official data, US durable goods orders fell 2.1 percent from the previous month in April 2019, surp

assing the expected 2 percent decline. Shipments of core capital goods – a leading indicator of economic expansion – fell by 0.9 percent in April. Fr

om the perspective of development trends, economists are unsure about the prospects of the US economy. According to a recent survey released by the Na

tional Association for Business Economics, many economists predicted that the possibility of a recession in the US ec

onomy by the end of 2020 will almost double, mainly due to the US government’s trade protectionist policies.
