ung Chinese consumers 上海419论坛 passion for cocktail bar

The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc

上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit

ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe

ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.

A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信

l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.

Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛

e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me

tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.

上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua

lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit

beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛

US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.

上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready

to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count

ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛

“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.

He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr

essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信

owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.

Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w

hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信

hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

China to EU, the US tariff 上海419论坛 continuesWith the Offic

by weimiaow on / 上海419论坛

 of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariffs on $

4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海419论坛

sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU goo

上海419论坛品茶微信ds-in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US ad

ministration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.

Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute ove上海419论坛

r the subsidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tari

ffs to exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global

上海419论坛品茶微信market and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.

The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “thre

e zeros”-zero tariff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy-for non-auto industrial products.上海419论坛

Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agricu

上海419论坛品茶微信ltural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington comp

elled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.

As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campai

gn, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the votes from the agricultural belts helpe上海419论坛品茶微信

d him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has provided numerous subsidies for farmers to

help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and other eco上海419论坛

nomies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agr

上海419论坛品茶微信icultural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.

However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane manuf

acturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose m

ore tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU goo

ds, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

g province, which dates from 5,300 to 4,500 years ago, archaeologists unearthed a hug

e dam 3.5 kilometers long and more than 10 meters thick. Ruins of the city cover 3 million square met上海419论坛

ers, and the city’s walls are 40 to 60 meters thick. The discovery was made possible with remote sensing technology.

上海419论坛”In the city center, we found a terrace that is 630 meters by 450 meters,” he said. “Some of the foundations are as large as 900 square meters.”

He estimated that the entire city would have taken 10,000 people a decade or longer to build.上海419论坛女神会所

“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many

上海419论坛people,” Wang said. “That indicated a time of early-stage states with wide influence.”

Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from

4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya

o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro

上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.

“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank

of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛

tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.

上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.

“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛

the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”

Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University

上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap

pearance of written characters and metallurgy, have not strictly been used in this project.

Liangzhu and several other early civilizations in China, h上海419论坛女神会所

owever, are known for their highly developed techniques in making jade articles.

上海419论坛女神会所”Some characters of human development are common,” Zhao said. “The

difference also shows there are some unique characters in early Chinese civilization.”

He said Chinese civilization also absorbed influences from other civilizations. Archaeological discoveries sho

w wheat cultivation, breeding of cattle and sheep, and bronze-making technology in China originated in We

stern and Central Asia and were later adopted and acquired local characteristics.

The park will also dismantle old factories to add 3.5 million sq meters of floor space for industrial development.

Shenzhen’s first united headquarters building will also be located in the Na

nshan park to house 15 high-tech firms, 12 of which will be listed companies.上海419论坛

The zone’s Pingshan park, occupying 51.6 square kilometers, is the largest among the five parks across the city. It is divided into the

southern and northern areas. The northern area features a new-energy industry headquarters while the sout

上海419论坛hern area, where Shenzhen Technology University is located, is focused on education, intelligent manufacturing and innovative services.

In 2019, the Pingshan park will provide an additional 50,000 sq km of land for industrial development through urban rejuvenation and upgrading old industrial parks.

Shenzhen National High-Tech Zone, inaugurated in 1996, was transformed from Shenzhen Science and Technology Park, which was set up in 1985.

It is China’s second-largest national high-tech zone in terms of area and ranks No 2 in GDP amon上海419论坛

It yielded 24.4 billion yuan ($3.87 billion) of GDP and 4.3 billion yuan of tax revenue per square kilometer in 2018, the biggest among

all its counterparts in the country. It accounted for 15 percent of the city’s total patent applications and yie

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumers will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief economist at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the c上海419论坛女神会所

elebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.上海419论坛女神会所

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP growth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pric

es (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next year to the next decade is so

mewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.

S has imposed s上海419论坛女神会所anctions on seven Russian oligarchs and 17 senior government officials, accusing them of “malign activity around the globe”.

Twelve companies owned by the oligarchs, the state arms exporter and a bank are also sanctioned.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the penalties targeted those profiting from Russia’s “corrupt system”.

The move was a response to Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, he said.

The sanctions are also being imposed because of the actions taken by

the Kremlin in Crimea, eastern Ukraine and Syria, Mr Mnuchin said in a statement on Friday.

He accused the Russian government of “malicious” cyber-activities and

said the sanctions would target “those who benefit from the Putin regime”.

“The Russian government operates for the disproportionate benefit of oligarchs,” he added.
