The CSGKC is also designated as a State-level pilot zone for the comprehensive reform of IP use and protection by the Sta上海千花坊

A national bankruptcy mechanism is under discussion by policymakers, covering local gover

“The key task is to prevent debt default risk,” said Wan Cunzhi, director-general of the PBOC’s Credit Information System Bu

Bankruptcy of local governments was rarely mentioned in China before, and the official didn’t re

we are declining less than the market. Instead we are increasing our market share, so it’s still quite a sizable

What’s your take on the current global economic uncertainty especially in US-China trade? How will this affect your company’s business?
上海龙凤419女神会所The world has become a much more complex place to do business. Although the trade friction hasn’t had a real impact on us
yet, we have of course paid attention to the two big superpowers in the world that not only have an impact on bila
teral relationships, but also worldwide. We believe in free markets, and global market uncertainty is det上海龙凤419女神会所
rimental to business activities. We think the world is global, technology is global, and knowledge is global. We will cont
i上海龙凤419女神会所nue to invest quite a lot worldwide, and of course in China. We have made two acquisitions, LiteMagic and WiZ. We con
tinue to invest here because we believe in the potential of the Chinese economy.

We plan to make our exhibition space 50 percent bigger at about 300 square meters. Meanwhile, we wil
上海龙凤419女神会所l showcase our latest innovations, including Li-Fi to Li-Fi Generation 2, Zigbee based Hue, Wi-Fi-based
WiZ, horticulture lighting, animal lighting, 3D printing and other new applications.
Last time we talked about Li-Fia two-way, high-speed wireless technology similar to Wi-Fi, which uses light waves instead of radi
o waves to transmit data. Signify’s Li-Fi products could provide a broadband internet connection through light waves wi
thout compromising lighting quality. But it was the beginning of it. Now we can say that we have four pilots in China for Li-Fi – one
with the China Academy of Building Research, where they’re testing and improving the capacity of that technology. So, we’ve moved from prese
nting the technology to application, finding customers and developing pilots. So this is the big change from last time.
Do you have any plans especially in the Yangtze River Delta region?
We don’t only look at our investment from a geographic perspective. We have invested in research and development and China is ho
me to the second biggest R&D center that we have. We develop not only for China but also for the world. It’s mostly in
Shanghai but also in Shenzhen. With that company, we are “potentializing” it, which is increasing sales in China, but
also helping the products that company has worldwide. We believe in investment, and we’re going to invest more.

上海乌托邦品茶微信set the bar at par with other multilateral development institutions and forged a good working relationship wit

The governance structure and decision-making process of the AIIB are based on multilateralism.
上海乌托邦品茶微信And despite China theoretically having a veto on significant issues by virtue of being the largest (ab
out 30 percent) shareholder, it has never used it even once－and would never use it without reason.
China has helped establish the AIIB to facilitate global development and regional con上海乌托邦
nectivity. And through the AIIB, China has been promoting constructive reforms in the global fin
上海乌托邦品茶微信ncial system and development institutions, without having any intention to replace them.
And fourth, the AIIB blueprint focuses on cautiously but professionally advancing development in a
ccordance with international standards, particularly because risk-aversion is the first rule of intern上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦品茶微信The AIIB has prudently weighed the different and diverse requests from both developed and developing member econ
omies before taking any decisions so that the future of the projects are not jeopardized.
More important, the AIIB has improved its operations and strengthen上海乌托邦品茶微信
ed its governance capability in accordance with global norms, built an institutional cult
上海乌托邦ure, and formed dozens of professional teams. In the process, the bank has accumulated abundant expe

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now de上海419论坛

上海419论坛品茶微信ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt majo

What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to d上海419论坛
rag China into the discussions on certain international issues regardless of whet
her it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving inte
上海419论坛rnational relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and ther
efore remains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the
US’ unilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.上海419论坛
Of course, China is ready to participate in international cooperation and help maintain w

Wigmakers in Juancheng county, East China’s Shandong province, are
making great strides toward the high-end market after several years’ stable development.上海夜生活
Juancheng is a small county with a history of 2,200 years in Sha
上海夜生活品茶微信ndong province, and has a history of more than 40 years in the hair-processing industry.
Hair-processing is one of the pillar industries for Juancheng, whi
ch is known for hair products, and also an important raw material distribution ce上海夜生活
nter and processing and export base for wig products. Currently, Juancheng has a pop
ulation of 900,000, among which 75,000, or nearly one-in-12 work in the hair-processing industry.
上海夜生活品茶微信According to Juancheng’s official website, 220 hair-processing enterprises have been set up in this county, pro
cessing more than 15 million units of wig products annually. In 2017, the hair-processing
industry achieved 1.09 billion yuan in import and export, accounting for 74.67 percent of the total.上海夜生活
In the peak season, there were nearly 2,000 small and micro businesses engaged in wig produc

上海夜生活品茶微信Wigs, made from human hair or synthetic fiber, are becoming i
ncreasingly popular, not only in the entertainment industry but also in daily life.
China’s wig producers have high regional concentration, and mainly focus on Henan and Shandong provinces, accor

With the Office of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariff
s on $4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海千花坊品茶微信
sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU go
上海千花坊ods－in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US adm
inistration 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 over the su上海千花坊
sidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tariffs t
上海千花坊品茶微信o exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global ma
rket 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 “three zeros”－zero ta上海千花坊
riff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy－for non-auto industrial products.
Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agri上海千花坊品茶微信
cultural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington com
pelled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.上海千花坊
As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campaign, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the
votes from the agricultural belts helped him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has pro上海千花坊品茶微信
vided numerous subsidies for farmers to help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and othe
r economies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agricu
ltural 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 ma
nufacturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose mo
re tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU go
ods, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

Liu Bingjiang, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment’s air quality management department, said at the same fo上海千花坊品茶微信

上海千花坊er the same market conditions against those investing little into environmental protection.
The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess
ment on steel producers when granting exemptions from production restrictions, he said.上海千花坊
Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.
上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and
roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.
More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊
tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.
上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas
to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.
Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni
g and Research Institute, said that to achieve low-carbon emissions involves upgrades in上海千花坊
the whole process of steel production, and more attention should be paid to procedures such as raw materials tra
上海千花坊品茶微信nsportation and storage, which often generate emissions that are difficult to contain.
