ncial environment in the long term, Chen Yuan, a former deputy governor of the central bank and former vice-ch
irman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, said at a forum on Aug 10.
亚博贵宾乌托邦品茶微信”Previously, we identified the foreign exchange reserves as an important milestone for ec
onomic development and society’s core wealth. Now, we have to reposition the foreign exchange market,” he added.
According to Chen, faced with new challenges, including foreign exchange rate issues raised by the United States rec亚博贵宾乌托邦
ently, the priority is to keep these reserves safe, and strengthen the renminbi’s position globally.
Chen sees potential in foreign exchange rate risks, as the majority of China-reserved foreign assets are in US dollars.
Late last month, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, C
hina’s forex regulator, said the country’s foreign exchange reserves held in US dollars
亚博贵宾乌托邦accounted for 58 percent of the total by the end of 2014, down from 79 percent in 1995.
Among global foreign exchange reserves, assets held in US dollars comprised 65 percent of

For the first time, SAFE made public the currency composition of the
forex reserves, after first reporting data to the Currency Composition of Foreign
亚博贵宾乌托邦Exchange Reserves, or COFER, an International Monetary Fund database, in 2015.
According to COFER, which keeps quarterly data on the currency composition of official亚博贵宾乌托邦品茶微信

“Hopeful ly, some innovative medicines will be soon produced in the new plant in SS亚博贵宾千花坊

亚博贵宾千花坊女神会所”We believe our location in SSGKC could help us achieve greater influence because it could radiate to the surrounding mar

Herman Lee, vice-president for market and business development at Guangzhou CanSemi Technology Inc, said the upg

The company will invest a total of 7 billion yuan in facilities in SSG

His first series of Dimoo World had the little boy wearing various animal costumes, ranging from a panda to a bluebird and all have Dimoo’s signature eyes.
亚博贵宾楼凤”It’s a reflection of my life. People love Dimoo because we share similar stories growing up,” says the de
signer, who has 20 dogs and cats, plus 12 turtles, which “have become her sources of inspiration”.
The trend of designer toys first started in Hong Kong in the 1990s and was influenced by Japan, South Korea and亚博贵宾楼凤女神会所
the West in the 2000s, according to Wang Ning. The trend is inevitable, given the country’s strong economy, he says.
“Designer toys satisfy the spiritual needs of young Chinese consumers. T

“It’s still evolving but has already become a phenomenon.”
The designer held three fan meetings during the show, which attracted hundreds.

commerce giant pump primes Juhuasuan to cash in on abundant opportunities
Times are changing fast at e-commerce behemoth Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. While st亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
ore-openings from a range of global brands like Burberry to Ferragamo were
亚博贵宾夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.
Against flattened economic growth and brutally aggressive competition, Alibaba is no
w giving unprecedented priority to Juhuasuan, its group-buying and flash-sale platfor亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
m, repositioning it as the top destination for consumers from smaller cities and townships.
亚博贵宾夜生活The internet giant said recently that it will host a Super Bargain Day from Sept 1, halving prices for 1 million me
rchandise and giving out cash dividends, coupons and other perks. Unlike the
more reputable Nov 11 annual sales event, the 10-day event is targeted at good-quality budget items.亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
“We see massive growth in lower-tier cities this year via the Juhuasuan platform. This is the
亚博贵宾夜生活engine fueling future growth and a bluesea market－meaning opportunities abound for each and e
very industry player to take a share,” said Liu Bo, general manager of Juhuasuan.
Media publications and industry analysts often categorize C亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
hinese cities into tiers, defining them based on population, gross domestic prod
亚博贵宾夜生活uct and other criteria. Tier-one cities normally refer to super metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai.
Alibaba’s strategy to penetrate into lower-tier markets has reaped some early gains. In the
quarter ending June 30, over 70 percent of increased annual active consumers came from less dev亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
eloped markets. The company attributed the achievement to initiatives to cater to a b
roader user base, such as “using simpler interfaces for first-time or less-frequent users”.亚博贵宾夜生活
Realizing the potential, Juhuasuan has announced a slew of plans to rev up services. On the
supply side, the platform aims to help manufacturers digitize their factories through consumer ana亚博贵宾夜生活女神会所
lytics and the internet of things technology. Liu said he hopes such efforts will foster
brands, create 1 million sought-after items and nurture 10,000 digital plants.

She added that running a 24-hour business is not easy, an亚博贵宾后花园女神会所
d many bookstores in China had tried and failed at this. But as the authorities have started to p
亚博贵宾后花园romote nighttime business activities, this offers a good opportunity to develop such bookstores.
“Bookstores are the spiritual landmarks of cities and are indispensable to citizens. To make 2
4-hour bookstores universal requires the joint efforts of society, and will take time,” she said, adding that she h亚博贵宾后花园女神会所
opes more cities in China will cater to people who want to read in bookstores at night.
In recent years, nighttime tourism has developed much faster than other se
亚博贵宾后花园ctors, and many cities have launched nocturnal projects. For example, Xi’an, capi
tal of Shaanxi province, has launched more night fairs, cultural performances and entertainment outlets.
Xu Xiaolei, chief brand officer for China Youth Travel Service亚博贵宾后花园, said that in the past, the tourism
industry placed the emphasis on daytime activities and “undervalued” nighttime operations. But con
亚博贵宾后花园女神会所sumers are now demanding high-quality nighttime activities, with nearly half of the company’s customers asking
for such itineraries to be arranged, whether they are traveling in China or abroad.
“I think it is especially good that the Chinese authorities have rolled out meas亚博贵宾后花园
ures to boost after-dusk activities, which is a response to people demanding higher-quality lives,” he said.
Xu added that Chinese cities are “too similar” in promoting nighttime ac亚博贵宾后花园女神会所
tivities. Most of the time, night travel is still about tasting local food in “snack streets”.
“Every city should think about developing unique tourism resources that would enabl亚博贵宾后花园

亚博贵宾乌托邦Rarely have European leaders spoken with such unity on an issue. By doing so they will have hoped to drive home the messa
ge to the US leader that in a closely interconnected global economy, no one wins in a trade war, everyone loses.
Hopefully, that message has been received, since the US leader said on Monday that the two sides will begin亚博贵宾乌托邦
“serious negotiations” soon, as both sides understand the consequences and where the other stands.
