The names of six new pilot free trade zones, which have completed the approv

al process, are expected to be released soon, China Securities Journal reported Wednesday.上海419论坛品茶微信

The accelerated launch of a new batch of pilot free trade zones shows China’s determinatio

n to further open up and release the dividends of opening-up, the report said citing experts’ views.

上海419论坛Industry analysis shows the new pilot free trade zones may come from six out of eig

ei province; Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province; Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous regi上海419论坛品茶微信

on; South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region; and Central China’s Hunan province.

China Securities Journal reported the above provinces and autonomous regions have all applied to build pilot free trade zones. S上海419论坛

handong put forth a proposal in 2016, including the plan in this year’s provincial government work report. Jiang上海419论坛

su submitted its first application to build a pilot FTZ in September 2013. Hebei proposed to build the China Hebei Pilo

上海419论坛品茶微信These free trade zones will most likely be located along the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the Silk Road Economic Belt,

21st Century Maritime Silk Road and around the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, said Bai Ming, deputy director of the I

nternational Market Research Institute under the Chinese Ministry of Commerce.

“China will set up six new pilot free trade zones and open a new section of the Shanghai Pi上海419论坛品茶微信lot Free Trade Zone, and will sp

Shares soar as S上海千花坊as stellar debutremony of th

China’s science-technology innovation board, dubbed the STAR Market, opened at the Shanghai Stock Exchange on Mon

上海千花坊day, and officials and analysts said it will help support innovation-driven economic growth and capital market reform.

A series of new systemic arrangements have been introduced in the Nasdaq-style board, such as the registration-based init上海千花坊

ial public offering system, a wider daily price limit and strengthened information disclosure requirements.

上海千花坊女神会所The first 25 companies listed on the board made a strong debut, with an average da

ily increase of 140 percent, possibly because there is no price change limit for the first five trading days. At oth

er A-share markets, there is a 10-percent daily price limit. Shanghai-based integrated circuit maker Anji Mi上海千花坊

croelectronics reported the biggest daily jump of 400 percent to close at 196 yuan ($28.50) per share.

There are over 3 million individual investors qualified to invest in the new board while the n

上海千花坊女神会所umber and scale of listed companies in the STAR Market is relatively small at present, leading to the firs

t-day surge of prices, said Yang Delong, chief economist at Shen­zhen-based First Seafront Fund.

Trading rules set by the Shanghai exchange and the China Securities Regulator上海千花坊

y Commission allow for a daily price fluctuation of 20 percent on the STAR Market after the first trading week. B

ut Yang warned investors of the possibility of price drops on the board in the next few days.

Liu Zhongyuan, di上海千花坊女神会所rector of securities investment at the National Council for Social Security Fund, said at the listing cerem

ony on Monday that the fund will invest in the STAR Market by sticking to its long-term investment pattern, in hop

es of supporting the development of technology startups and the real economy.

上海千花坊The new tech board, which was initiated in November, has realized the highest level of innovation in

terms of systems and ideas under the current framework, said Fu Lichun, research director at Northeast S

ecurities. With no existing model to refer to, efficiency in inaugurating the board is “stunning”, he said.上海千花坊女神会所

Fujian aims to devel上海419论坛op cruise industry

Xiamen International Cruise Home Port in East China’s Fujian province has registered a record

上海419论坛number of passengers passing through in the first of the year – 185,000, a 36 percent year-on-year increase.

Superstar Gemini, operated by Xiamen port partner Star Cruises上海419论坛女神会所

, has berthed at the port’s Dongdu International Cruise Terminal for its 17th operation since May.

上海419论坛Having hosted over 3,500 passengers this year, it is expected

to have 70 operations this year, marking its longest cruise season in history.

“We’ve seen the cruise tour boom this year because we have deve上海419论坛女神会所

loped a Spring Festival season cruise, and cruise services to Taiwan reopened this May.

上海419论坛”Meanwhile the Belt and Road course is growing popul

ar among tourists thanks to the geographical advantage of our port,” said

Yang Lili, deputy general manager of Xiamen International Cruise Home Port Group.上海419论坛女神会所

In early April the reconstruction of Xiamen International Cruises’ berths was completed.

上海419论坛The total length is over 1,400 meters, including a 150,000-ton, two

80,000-ton and a 3,000-ton berths which can simultaneously accommodate three or fou

r medium and large cruise ships – including the world’s largest 225,000-ton cruise ship.上海419论坛女神会所

“After the reconstruction, the entire cruise service has been greatly improved. The fir

上海419论坛st Chinese-funded cruise ship, Gulangyu, will come into service in September.

“A 130,000-ton ship named Glory will also be brought into o

peration in Xiamen, marking a new area of giant cruises,” Yang Lili said.上海419论坛女神会所

The provincial government also rolled out a scheme this May to spur cruise ship growth by 2035, with

the aim of establishing a preliminary layout of harbors and shipping lines.上海419论坛女神会所

It is hoped the move will provide for a sustainable, secure and reliable emergency system.

ack of education resources, school culture and modern teaching methods for a holistic education.上海龙凤

“That’s why we are here to bring both knowledge and new insights to the te

上海龙凤品茶微信achers and children, and to broaden their minds through courses and training.”

As an example, he said the team offers lectures on artificial intelligence to equip students with rapidly developing knowledge.

Fu has also organized after-school class every Saturday for over 100 students who are struggling academically. They are from a ho

me funded by a local charity and are enrolled in primary school at the Shanghai Experimental School.上海龙凤

Considering that these children receive no care from family, team members often visit the house to hold a

上海龙凤ctivities like birthday parties and to conduct exercises. Fu also adopted a 2-month-old boy from the house in 2016.

Children at the welfare house regard Fu and the other 39 Shanghai teachers as their Sha上海龙凤品茶微信

nghai fathers. In 2017, they expressed their appreciation for the team members in a poem entitled Love of Angel.

上海龙凤”You bring us a sunny sky, and our lives have become bright and colorful,” the poem said.

Led by Fu, a teacher training center and an online platform for educational resource sharing have been上海龙凤

built in Shigatse, where local teachers can share insights with their Shanghai peers and hold teaching activities online.

This year, an alliance was formed among eight high schools in Shanghai and 10 in Tibet to exchange quality education resources.

上海龙凤品茶微信”We are really thankful for Fu and his team who have helped build a

more skilled and qualified teaching and management faculty, and who have hel

ped improve student achievement,” said Liu Qiang, vice-principal of Shanghai Experimental School in Shigatse.上海龙凤

Though his stay in Tibet will end in August, Fu said he will keep spreading Shanghai education experiences to Tibet and focu上海龙凤品茶微信

sing on the development of education in more areas inhabited by ethnic minority groups in China.

“I later found out that this was caused by factories disch

Zhou worked as a civil servant in Shanghai after getting a bachelor’s degree in Chinese literature from Fudan Univ

ersity. While working this job, she had the chance to embark on her first overseas trip to Tasmania, Australia. 上海夜网女神会所

There, when faced with pristine scenes of n

ature, she finally understood the magnitude of the pollution problem at home. 上海夜网

“It was in Tasmania where I learned that leaves should not be cover

 上海夜网ed in dust, that the sky should be blue, that the water should be clear,” she said.

The trip sparked something within her, and she resigned from her job as soon as she returned, joining a

n environmental protection organization to protect bar-headed geese at the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. 上海夜网女神会所

Two years later, in 2013, Zhou followed her husband to the United States, where he was accepte

Eager to learn more about how environmental protection organizations operate, Zhou applied for a master’s degree program at

and returned to Shanghai in 2016. However, she was sidetracked from her original plan and ended up doing bus

-than-expected box office market. The National Radio and Television Administration said box

-office revenue hit 31.17 billion yuan in the first half of 2019 in China, down 2.7 percent year-on-year. 上海品茶微信女神会所

To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re

 上海品茶微信solution screens is part of the reason why premium film screenings are welcome.

“We saw strong demand in blockbusters, not only those (from) Hollywood but also Ch

inese-language films, which are increasingly welcomed by Chinese audiences.” 上海品茶微信女神会所

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv

 上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.

“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the

reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信

ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.

 上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.

Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa

id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信

s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.

“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin

ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

A rough industry estimate from entertainment analysi

 上海品茶微信s website Dengta under online ticketing platform Taopiaopiao show

s cinema visits slumped by nearly 100 million to around 807 million in the first half of this year.

“On one hand, rising ticket prices prevent many people from visiting cinema 上海品茶微信女神会所

Christensen, 上海后花园 graduate student at the Universit

 of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign, the same school Zhang was attending, would be the first person to be sentenced to death in a federal cou

rthouse in Illinois since 2006, if the jury reaches a unanimous verdict that he should be executed by lethal injection.上海后花园品茶微信

US District Court Judge James Shadid read instructions to the jury on Wednesd

上海后花园ay morning after the prosecution and defense made their closing arguments.

“The law leaves this decision exclusively to you, the jury,” Shadid said. “Whichever sentence you choose, death or life im上海后花园

prisonment without the possibility of release, the court is required to impose that sentence.”

上海后花园品茶微信Zhang’s mother, father, boyfriend and brother were in the main courtroom Wednesday m

orning, but after some deliberation in the judge’s chambers, her mother didn’t return.

The same 12 jurors took under 90 minutes on June 24 to unanimo上海后花园

usly find Christensen guilty of all three counts against him, namely kidnapping resulting in th

上海后花园e death of the 26-year-old Zhang, and two counts of making false statements to the FBI.

Christensen’s defense lawyers admitted to the court that in June 2017, he

raped Zhang and beat her to death with a bat. Christensen hasn’t said what he did with the bod上海后花园品茶微信

y. Investigators have not been able to find Zhang’s body, despite an intensive search.

In his closing argument, federal prosecutor James Nels上海后花园

He acknowledged the grief of Christensen’s family would have if he were sen上海后花园品茶微信

tenced to death, but said the “source of that pain sits in that chair”, referring to Christensen.

He described the impact on Zhang’s family, as they placed great hope in her.

上海后花园”That’s why Yingying fought so hard. She had so much to live for,” Nelson said.

“Everyone in this room felt the weight of Yingying Zhang’s murder,” US Attorney Eug上海后花园品茶微信

uropean Commission上海千花坊elect Ursula von der Ley

With Tuesday’s victory, von der Leyen has become the first Germ

an commission president since Walter Hallstein served in that post from 1958 to 1967.上海千花坊女神会所

Juncker, also from the EPP, offered his congratulations on Twitter, saying: “This job is a

上海千花坊huge responsibility and a challenge. I am sure you will make a great President.”

European Council President Donald Tusk said in a tweet: “Congratulations [email protected] Congratulations Europe.”

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who will succeed Tusk on Dec 1, said on Twitter that h上海千花坊

e looked forward to cooperating closely with the institutions for the future of Europe. “Let’s work togeth

er in the interest of all Europeans,” Michel said. The post included a photo of him shaking hands with von der Leyen.

上海千花坊女神会所Von der Leyen, a mother of seven, had the backing of her own EPP as well as the cent

The Greens and some left-wing and right-wing parties were the most vocal in opposing her nomination.

Ska Keller, co-leader of the Greens, offered her congratulations after the announcement of the vote result. But in a tweet af

上海千花坊女神会所ter von der Leyen’s opening speech in the morning, Keller said: “Nice speech by @vonderleye

During the morning speeches, many members of the European Parliament delivered scath

Monika Vana, an Austrian MEP of the Greens, blasted von der Leyen’s argument for more military spending. “A majori

according to sources wit上海夜网rnment.ses by the en

In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M

ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta

ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网

The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.

上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T

rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t

he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网

Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.

上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended

the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.

Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his

country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网

But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C

上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.

Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has

been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网

ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.

The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized

the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信

itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.

Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网

task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con

上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi

ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.
