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亚博贵宾夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.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.

?well, and most of those I harvest go to big food processing factories nearby,” he sa

亚博贵宾夜生活id. “I can sell the soybeans for about 4 yuan a kilogram, compared with 3.6 yuan last year.”

Although Sun wanted to rent more land from farmers in nearby villages to expand his soybean亚博贵宾夜生活

harvest this year, many of them were unwilling to do so, or had increased their rents, so Sun said he gave up.

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信In Hailun, a national pilot area for high-efficiency production of green and high-quality soybeans, m

ore than 133,000 hectares of farmland have been planted with the crop since 2000, according to Yang

Dayong, director of the Green Food Development Office, which is responsible to the city’s agricultural and rural affairs bureau.

With higher profits from soybean farming and policies to encourage the growth of such crops adopted by the local govern亚博贵宾夜生活

ment, the amount of land used for soybean planting in the city is expected to rise to 193,000 hectares this year, a year-on-ye

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信ar expansion of 45 percent, accounting for more than half the farmland in Hailun.

The city will also try to take more measures to help farmers to improve soybean

productivity and quality, including introducing superior species and promoting new fertilizing techn亚博贵宾夜生活

ologies to enable the crop to play a more important role in the local economy, Yang said.

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信Soybean planting has increased nationwide this year, following a na

tional plan proposed by the central government to rejuvenate production of the crop.亚博贵宾夜生活

The total area of farmland planted with soybeans this year may exceed 8.6 millio

n hectares, a year-on-year rise of more than 667,000 hectares, which would be the fourth consecutive year of gro

亚博贵宾夜生活wth, according to Pan Wenbo, planting administration head at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This year, the central government has provided more support to enco

urage soybean planting, including continuing to provide subsidies to farmers in the north亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

east, a major production area for the crop, promoting rotation farming of corn and

亚博贵宾夜生活soybeans, and increasing financial support for major soybean production counties, Pan said.

According to a plan released by the ministry earlier

this year to increase domestic soybean production, authorities will introduce more policies to e亚博贵宾夜生活

ncourage planting of the crop. The policies will include increasing subsidies to farm

ers and developing new soybean species over the next few years to raise domestic production.

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信According to the plan, the amount of land used for growing soybeans is expected to rise to 9.3 million hectares by the end of next y

ear and to 10 million hectares by 2022, with per-hectare production and quality also being boosted.

With consumption of soybeans in recent years increasing for their protein and ed

ible oil, the gap between supply and demand has been widening, resulting in China re亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

lying on imports, with more than 80 percent of such produce coming from countries such as Brazil and the United States.

In comparison, China is almost self-sufficient in rice, wheat and corn – the nation’s

three major crops – with domestic production meeting more than 98 percent of total demand.

Last year, China’s soybean imports reached 88 million metric ton

s, more than twice the level in 2009, but a decline of about 8 percent compared with the previo

us year – the first fall since 2011 – due to outbreaks of African swine fever. This led to declining demand for soybean me

al, a major byproduct used for pig feed, along with a slump in imports from the US due to increased tariffs on soybe

ans imposed by Beijing, according to the General Administration of Customs.

Imports from Brazil exceeded 66 million tons last year, accounting for 75 percent of the total, fo

llowed by those from the US, which fell by more than 16 million tons, a drop of about 50 percent year-on-year.

Amid rising domestic production, soybean imports have continued to fall this year. A total of 31.7 million tons were impo

rted in the first five months, a year-on-year fall of 12.2 percent, according to the ministry. Imports from the US fell ye

ar-on-year by 70.6 percent in the first four months to 4.3 million tons, the ministry said.

?Breaking-up may be hard for many people, but it might also prove to be a gold mine for some.

For Li Fangfang, 27, the “breakup economy” is obvious in the “breakup museum”

亚博贵宾夜生活she launched in June in Lanzhou, capital of northwest China’s Gansu Province.

In the museum, exhibits such as rings, letters and train tickets are on display.

“I created this museum to help people out of sadness and desperation from heartbreak,” Li said. “All the exhibits were亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

collected by me and my team from the Internet, or donated by visitors themselves.”

亚博贵宾夜生活The museum is divided into sections of different themes. In addition to the ex

ibits, there are also punching bags, a screening room and a “make a wish” lobby.

“I want people to be able to relieve their internal pressure, let go of the past, move on and embrace a new, bright future,” she said.亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

In China, “breakup museums” have mushroomed in many localities,

as the “breakup economy” catches on. In April, for instance, a similar museum opened in Eas

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信China’s Anhui province. In the provinces of Sichuan and Jiangsu, there are also such museums.

To promote her museum, Li turned to social media such as WeChat and short video platforms like

Douyin to spread the word. She also established chatting groups on WeChat, where offline activities亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

were often held. Some of the broken hearts in the groups began dating after meeting each other.

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno

wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin

亚博贵宾夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year

posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.

According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be

亚博贵宾夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.

The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in

2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.

亚博贵宾夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi

s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.

“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.

亚博贵宾夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint

ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma

o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin

亚博贵宾夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu

rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信

ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col

亚博贵宾夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.

“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp

ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.

“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th

e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le

ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”

lack of reliable payment systems, low trust between buyers and sellers, and logistics and deliv

Internet regulations must not be disruptive

The bigger risk to these platforms stems from the inevitable and necessary increase in regulation of the internet arou

Gao cited data to rebut that view and urged AmCham Chi

ina to evaluate China’s market access and business environment for foreign investors in a “comprehensive, objective and fair” way.

The ministry’s data showed that US investment in China jumped 71.3 percent year-on-ye

ar in the first three months of this year. In 2018, US investment increased 7.7 percent year-on-year.

Gao said expansion of the investment figures fully demonstrates that US compan

ies continue to be optimistic about the market and accelerate the pace of investing in China.

Gao cited another survey published in February by AmCham China that showed that most US

companies with operations in China said they have continued to see their revenues grow there.

Gao said the ministry will maintain close contact with foreign enterprise

s and business associations, and continuously improve China’s business environment.
