ard scanned, and obtain their favorite books any time, because technology has made 24-hour unstaffed service feasible.
上海419In Sanlitun, the heart of Beijing’s nightlife hub, at 11 pm on a sum
mer night, among the bustling crowds one store stands out. It is Sanlian Taofen Sa
nlitun Bookstore, a 24-hour bookstore that has become a landmark since it opened last year.上海419
The shop used to be a bar in a street reputed for its late-night carousing.
上海419品茶微信The night China Daily visited the shop, and alley that connects the north
ern and southern ends of Sanlitun Village was teeming with people, while in the 700-squ
are-meter bookstore with about 20,000 books, a couple of young people were sitting next to their laptops open.上海419
“We come here quite often,” says one of them, who lives nearby. “It’s th
e place I use most for finishing work each day. This is the only quiet place I can find arou
上海419品茶微信nd here where I do not need to worry about closing time, and you have the air conditioning in summer, too.”
Another of those in the shop, Zhao Xiaohan of Xiamen, Fujian province, who was on holi
day in Beijing, says: “I accidentally found this place while I was looking for a perch after a long day of trave上海419品茶微信
l. It’s a relaxing place, but many young people come in here after dinner time because it’s the summer holidays.”
上海419In addition to stocking the latest titles and best-sellers, Sanlian Taofen sells books in ancien
t Chinese and many works in English. To attract customers in an area that is popular with tourists it al
so sells souvenirs and ornaments representative of traditional Chinese culture.上海419品茶微信
Another tourist in the shop, who says she is from Moscow, was astounded by the shop’s ran
上海419ge of offerings. “I’ve never seen a bookstore like this. It’s got everything related to books you could ever want. Befo
re I came in I wasn’t even sure it was still open. I’ve never come across anything like this in Russia.”
A shop assistant says the design of the shop, on two floors, is inspired by Travelers a上海419品茶微信
mong Mountains and Streams, an ink-wash painting by Fan Kuan of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).
ween January and July, with bilateral trade volume up 10.8 percent year
上海419on-year to 2.72 trillion yuan, followed by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, up
11.3 percent to 2.35 trillion yuan, and the United States, down 8.1 percent to 2.1 trillion yuan.
To offset the negative impact caused by the Sino-US trade dispute, potential for trade cooperation between China and economie上海419品茶微信
s participating in the Belt and Road Initiative such as ASEAN, Russia and Italy has been further unleashed this yea
上海419r, said Chen Bin, executive vice-president of the China Machinery Industry Federation.
Chen said the trade dispute between China and the US has prompted Chinese ente
rprises to accelerate their pace of innovation to break external restrictions in many fi上海419品茶微信
elds such as semiconductors and new materials, as well as expand their global presence at a notable pace.
Yan Min, a division head at the State Information Center’s Department of Economic Forecasting, said China’s div
上海419ersified trade development — exploring new markets and generating fresh demand — has become a driving forc
e for its foreign trade expansion and created room for the country to maintain stable trade growth.
New measures to stabilize trade can help ease the burdens of Chinese exporters and enh上海419品茶微信
ance their capabilities to address external uncertainties and boost their confidence, Yan said.
上海419According to the General Administration of Customs, China’s exports increased 6.7 percent year-on-year to 9.48 trillion yuan in th
e first seven months, while imports grew 1.3 percent to 7.93 trillion yuan. Its trade s
urplus widened by 47.4 percent year-on-year to 1.55 trillion yuan during the same period.
China’s trade with BRI economies totaled 5.03 trillion yuan, up 10.2 percent year-on-year, about 6 pe上海419品茶微信
rcentage points higher than the overall pace, accounting for 28.9 percent of China’s total trade volume.
n of Hubei province, announced that it had punished 15 local officials for constructing a bridge that caused the de
上海419品茶微信aths of 36 Chinese sturgeons, which are a critically endangered species. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:
In September 2018, when a company was constructing the local Miyue Bridge in Jingzhou, Hubei province, a nearby C
hinese sturgeon breeding base found that their Chinese sturgeons suffered and were jumping out of the water. 上海419
An investigation concluded that it was the noise of the construction that distur
上海419bed the fish. However, the local government upon receiving the investigation report si
mply passed the buck from one department to another. The construction did not stop until one month later, but th
e tragedy had already happened because 36 Chinese sturgeons, whose number is lower than 1,000 nationwide, died. 上海419品茶微信
A later probe even found that the construction project had not undergone any environmental impact assessment. The ca
上海419e reflects the lack of any environmental protection awareness among many local officials, whose sole co
ncern is GDP growth. The construction of the bridge will probably result in tens of millions of yuan in GDP growth. C
ompared to that, in their minds, the lives of a few Chinese sturgeons are expendable. 上海419
For a long time, wildlife protection and other aspects of environmental protection have
上海419品茶微信been considered a job that belongs to environmental departments only. In this case, the local
government of Jingzhou received complaints first, but they simply passed them on.
Even when experts reached their conclusions, the bridge constr 上海419
uction still continued. It did not stop until the media reported on the incident.
This is the first of its kind, in which local officials have been punished for failing to properly protect an endangered species. Mo
上海419品茶微信re important, the majority of the 15 punished officials serve in administrative offices, not just the one responsible for wi
ldlife protection. In other words, wildlife protection is considered a job for every department.
Let’s hope it will guide more officials nationwide to have a deeper understanding of the importance of wildlife protection.
aged to stay afloat thanks to a raft of stimulus measures and a surge in Chinese
demand for commodities, a new report by Deloitte Access Economics said on Monday.上海419品茶微信
While Australia has experienced falls in the real estate market, severe drought, stagnant wage gro
上海419wth and weak consumer spending over the past 18 months, strength in its robust resources sector has not waned.
This, combined with record low interest rates and generous tax breaks that were introduced by t上海419
he newly-elected Morrison government should help keep Australia’s economy on track, Deloitte Ac
cess Economics Partner Chris Richardson said in the firm’s latest Business Outlook for the month of June.上海419品茶微信
“Overall global growth looks set to stay in the slow lane through the rest o
f 2019 and through 2020 as well, though the extent of that slowdown looks to be co
上海419ntained as central banks start to boost their assistance to growth, and as government budgets do the same,” he said.
“Remarkably, despite the global slowdown, the world has given Australia a big pay上海419品茶微信
rise, as China’s stimulus means a surge in the demand for and prices of Australian coal and iron ore.”
上海419Although Australia’s inflation levels remain subdued mainly because of low wage growth, Richardson said the cou
ntry’s central bank is now beginning to change direction when it comes to monetary policy.上海419
“For years the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) thought full employme
nt meant unemployment of “around 5.0 percent,” but now it thinks unemployment can go a lit上海419
tle under 4.5 percent before wages start to party. Australia can go stronger-for-longer before inflation revs up,” he said.
上海419品茶微信”But getting unemployment under 4.5 percent is more than the RBA can do by itself, so official ra
tes are headed to 0.75 percent or 0.5 percent pretty fast, and things get more complicated after that.”
“We may be in for a phase in which Australia joins much of the world in having interest rates very low for some time. Th上海419品茶微信
at change of tack by the RBA is keeping the Australian dollar under control despite sky-high commodity prices.”
A former cosmetics factory, the Sanlu Plant in Beijing has been repurposed to house, dev
elop and protect the future of China’s intangible cultural heritage, Yang Feiyue reports.上海419女神会所
A former factory and Beijing landmark has been transfo
上海419女神会所rmed into an intangible cultural heritage park in the capital’s downtown.
Several modern-looking buildings and a big lawn at its heart easily set Yongyuan apart from its hutong surroundings.
Yongyuan park sits on Xingfu Street in Beijing’s Dongcheng district where the Sanlu P上海419
lant, a well-known cosmetics manufacturer back in the ’80s and ’90s, once stood.
上海419女神会所The Sanlu Plant’s Dabao skincare brand was a household name nationwide, and the plant develope
d more than 100 products in markets such as hair care and fragrances. It contributed over 100 mil
lion yuan ($14.57 million) to the economy in the 1990s, making it Beijing’s number one taxpayer.上海419
In 2003, the plant’s cosmetics production line was transferred
out of the city, leaving the land at the center of the capital open for new use.
The Sanlu Plant began its search for a tenant and in 2018, Hong上海419
Kong-listed Beijing Capital Land came in and decided to develop its cultural operations.上海419女神会所
“The proprietor sympathizes with the concept of the cultural and creative indu
stries, and intangible cultural heritage,” says Li Yue, general manager with the inta
ngible cultural heritage platform, which Beijing Capital Land established last year.
上海419tions will strengthen the foundation of bilateral ties.Lawyers in Hong Kong joined on Wednesday the
wide condemnation against the violent takeover of the city legislative chambers, saying in a statement that it “had crossed th上海419
e line of freedom of expression and could be deemed a political act with a hidden agenda”.
They called on the legal community to unite and send a clear message that the Hong Kong Spec
ial Administrative Region, a community that upholds the rule of law, will never tolerate violence.上海419女神会所
The statement represented more than 135 members of the legal community, including Maria Tam Waichu, deputy director of the Basic Law Committee of the S
tanding Committee of the National People’s Congress. The statement was read by barrister and lawmaker Priscilla Leung Mei-fun in front of the council’s b上海419
uilding, which was besieged, occupied and defaced by radical protesters on Monday night.
上海419女神会所Leung said radical protesters had attacked the “one country, two systems” principle by their a
ctions after breaking into the legislative complex. Protesters were seen tearing up Basic Law doc
uments, waving the colonial-era Hong Kong flag and defacing the city’s regional emblem after they occupied the chamber.
“That shows they were there with a cause,” Leung said, adding that disturbing上海419女神会所
the public order for political reasons already crossed the bottom line of the Hong Kong community.
The statement also said that the city will never acquiesce to violence and that extremist protesters must receive legal punishment.上海419女神会所
Joining Leung was barrister Kacee Ting Wong, who criticized lawyers of the city’s opposition camp as turning a blind eye to violence. Ting
said they had failed in their responsibility to safeguard and maintain the rule of law of Hong Kong’s legal systems.
