ccidentally discovered that baijiu from his hometown, a small village in

Lichuan city, Hubei province, was popular with some consumers in first-tier cities.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Fu Lei, product manager at Yefu Academy Cultural and Creative Industries Co, said: “Yefu’s mother used to work in a baijiu distillery, so he has a s

The baijiu brand Wuximan was first presented as a gift to people who bought other local products, but the

With artistic packaging featuring his poetry and lyrics on a terrazzo bottle, the brand was produced by a small workshop in Yefu’

上海乌托邦品茶微信s village from mountain spring water and pure red sorghum. On good days, more than 100 bottles a day are sold.

Fu said: “Baijiu is a niche market and consumers mainly come from big cities, where there are either

expensive high-end brands or low-end ones. It is not easy for people to obtain pure-grain baijiu,上海乌托邦

and we try to sell them good-quality original products that are reasonably priced.”

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

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

 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.

Yang cares deeply about audiences and welcomes critical suggestions. “I don’t like hearing praise all the time, since that makes it hard to pro

With 20 years of acting under her belt, Yang allows herself a modicum of confidence. “I used to feel tense and was afraid the director might be dissatisfied with

上海会所my acting. But now, I can discuss the character and my acting with the director if I have a different understanding of the role.”

Yang also says she used to care a little too much about what others thought

Hainan free to create 上海419论坛foreign education ties

World-class overseas universities are welcome to run schools in cooperation with Chinese inst

ording to a circular issued by the Ministry of Education and Hainan’s provincial government recently.

 上海419论坛It said the country will target the tropical island for international education inn

ovation, deepen its educational reform in an all-around way and further open th

e sector to make Hainan a vivid example of open and innovative development of the educational sector. 上海419论坛

Hainan, which is developing the country’s newest and largest free trade zone, will be a national pilot area where a ne

w, open system for running schools will be set up, in addition to a joint examination an

 上海419论坛女神会所d approval mechanism for overseas joint ventures and cooperation projects, the circular said.

It added that as long as risks are controlled, the island province will be encouraged to set up international high scho

ols and kindergartens on a pilot basis to implement international education.

The document also noted that when conditions mature, overseas engineering universities an 上海419论坛

d vocational colleges will be allowed to run pilot schools independently in Hainan, which will also explor

e allowing leading overseas business conglomerates to develop educational services on their own.

 上海419论坛女神会所The new policy also gives a green light to overseas institutions to establish independent Sino-

foreign medical and health services in Hainan, according to the circular.

Furthermore, the pilot plan will encourage leading Chinese and foreign institutions of higher learning and scie

An education innovation consortium – which combines research branches, laboratories and incubation centers that focus 上海419论坛女神会所

China broke into the 上海乌托邦rld’s innovative econo

conomies, jumping from 22nd in 2017 to the 17th last year, according to the Global Innovation Index 2018, published by Cornell U

niversity, the World Intellectual Property Organization and INSEAD, a global business graduate school. 上海乌托邦品茶微信

Pan said these achievements are manifestations of China’s growing technol

 上海乌托邦ogical capability, fueled by the desire to use innovations to push socioeconomic progress.

This, however, has led to some Western countries, such as the US, fearing that China’s scientific and te

chnological rise will challenge their global position. “This sentiment is understandable, but misguided,” he said.

“China is still a developing country, lacking a base and accumulation of innovation capability compared with the US, as w 上海乌托邦品茶微信

ell as drastically different national conditions,” Pan said. “This means we cannot follow the deve

 上海乌托邦lopmental path that the West expects us to take, and we have to forge our own path one step at a time.

“But now the US is treating China like a developed country capable of challenging its global dominance, it is holding China to sta

ndards that we cannot meet for the time being, and it makes accusations against us if we don’t,” he said.

As of late May, the US Department of Commerce had placed more t 上海乌托邦品茶微信

han 140 entities from the Chinese mainland on its Entity List, a ledger of firms legally pro

 上海乌托邦hibited to trade with the US, on the basis of an alleged threat to US national security and interests.

In June, five entities were added to the list: Chinese supercomputer manufacturers and institutions including Sug

on, Higon and the Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, the chipmaker for China’s most powerful sup

ercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, which also ranked as the third most powerful globally. 上海乌托邦

The United States also is targeting Chinese scholars and students b

y closing their labs or denying visas to visit the US over alleged spying dangers. In May, Emo

 上海乌托邦品茶微信ry University in Atlanta fired neuroscientists Li Xiao­jiang and his wife, Li Shihua, both US citizens who had worked

at Emory for more than two decades, accusing them of hiding funding and ties to institutions in China.

“These actions are antithetical to the US’ immigrant roots and inte 上海乌托邦

rests, and will impede global scientific exchange and progress,” Pan said.

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled
