Is the Chinese mainla上海千花网e main focus for your

Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years

ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom that could help us. The mainla上海千花网女神会所

nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have

上海千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour

se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.上海千花网女神会所

Do you design especially for the mainland market?

We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c上海千花网

are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol

d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we上海千花网

will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.

The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?

上海千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We

do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin

ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod上海千花网

uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K

上海千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist

s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?

The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These上海千花网

influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.

We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces

上海千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r

ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.

What’s your best-selling piece?上海千花网女神会所

Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,

but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel

ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co上海千花网

ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha上海千花网女神会所

nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.

For instance, an electric ca上海千花网run 350 kilomet

ers on one charge would earn 5 credits for its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be redu

ced to 2.5, according to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.上海千花网

He added that the proposed policy encourages better technology as more efficient power consumption will earn more credits.

上海千花网女神会所Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, es

pecially international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.

Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy envi上海千花网

ronment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.

The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will

上海千花网女神会所be made in China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.

So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.

The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 units上海千花网

during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.

上海千花网女神会所The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.

They would still be considered fossil-fueled but re-classified as “low fuel consu

mption passenger vehicles” and thus will incur less negative points than traditional vehicles.

Under the current system, automakers in China are obliged to make up for a portion of the negative points they incur whe上海千花网女神会所

n they produce internal combustion engine vehicles with points won for producing new energy vehicles.

Analysts said the revision could see more traditional vehicles replaced with hybrids, because when automakers prod

uce hybrids. The proposed change came as a surprise, some experts and industry officials said, because the gove上海千花网女神会所

rnment has never before given any preferential treatment for hybrid technology.

“The new proposed policy is a roundabout way to promote hybrid cars,” said Cui in a social media post.

According to Zhang Shu上海千花网 of the Yantai Ar

rt Museum, Peking Opera became popular in Yantai back in the 19th century after some famous Peking Opera maste

rs performed there, including Tan Xinpei (1847-1917), the founder of Tan-style performance.上海千花网品茶微信

Tan, who gave three shows in Yantai in 1868, was the first Peking Opera master who performed in Yantai.

上海千花网Peking Opera master Zhou Xinfang (1895-1975) made his debut performance in Yantai in 1907 when he was 12 years old.

After that he performed in Yantai six times from 1907 to 1931, which made him a household name in the city.

“Then, Peking Opera troupes which toured the country stopped by the docks at the上海千花网品茶微信

port in Yantai. as the city was regarded as a place which could test the popularity of the artists,” says Zhang.

During the summer camp, the Yantai Art Museum will also hold Peking O

上海千花网pera exhibitions, displaying artworks based on the old art form, including paper-cutting, in

k paintings, sculptures and facial makeup, which introduce the history and characters of Peking Opera.

On Aug 7, the exhibition will move to Beijing.上海千花网

Meanwhile, according to Zhang Zuling, the director of Yantai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, Yantai has 10 pr

上海千花网品茶微信ofessional Peking Opera troupes, which give over 1,000 shows each year in the city.

In 2018, a project was launched by the government to promote Peking Opera in Yantai, especially among the young generation.

An original Peking Opera production Liberation of Yantai, which chronicles Yantai’s上海千花网品茶微信

liberation during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-1945), was premiered by Yantai Pekin

上海千花网g Opera Company, and was also staged at the eighth China Peking Opera Art Festival in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.

Speaking about the project, Zhang Zuling says: “In 2018, over 80 million tourists came to Y上海千花网品茶微信

antai. It’s a great platform to revitalize the old art form among the young students.”

In the 1950s, the Amer 上海千花网try was seen as the

e prototype of how business should be run. Car company executives were seen as the most capable manage

 上海千花网品茶微信rs. In 1953, president Eisenhower chose Charles Wilson, known as “engine Charlie,” to be his Secretary of Defense.

Then, in 1961, president Kennedy chose Ford president Robert McNamara for the same position. (Of course, McNamara’s incredible mismanagement of the war in Vietnam reduced any confidence that car company executives were especially competent.)

By the late 1960s, the “big three “car companies in the US – General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler – formed a virtual oligopoly and turned lazy. 上海千花网

I remember American cars my father bought in these years often overheating and breaking down by the side of the road. Dad would have to stay by the car with my m

other and sisters while I walked a long way to find a service station and arrange a tow. (This was long before mobile phones.) 上海千花网品茶微信

So, American consumers were ready for more competitive Japanese-made cars, which had consistently high

er quality, to enter the market. My father switched to Japanese cars in the 1970s, and never bought another American-made car. 上海千花网

American car companies saw their profits fall and were not able to pay their workers t

he very high wages made possible by a closed, non-competitive market. The US government responded by

 上海千花网品茶微信imposing quotas on the import of Japanese cars and by pushing Japan to rapidly raise the value of the yen.

Obviously, there was a conflict. American consumers benefitted from the cheaper, better cars while workers at the big three saw their jobs become less secure and the

ir wages fall. Fortunately, the protection was only partial and temporary, so the competition eventually forced US carmakers to improve.

Competition is at the heart of the current disputes over globalization and technology. On net, the spread of econo 上海千花网品茶微信

mic opportunities around the world has been a great boon. Many products are more widely and cheaply available than ever before.

Many countries, including China and India, have greatly reduced poverty and given opportunities to their people that would have been undreamed of by earlier ge 上海千花网

nerations. American and Western European companies and consumers have greatly benefitted.

But nobody really likes competition against themselves. Most people like some degree of stability and protection. A worker w

ho has put in 20 or 30 years in an industry will definitely feel that it is unfair to have to move to a much lower-pa

ying service job. A company facing new competitors will try to convince its home government to stop the competition.

Americans saw many benefits from the second globalization period. As Japanese and, later Chinese, manufacturers began to export t

o the US, many consumer goods became a lot cheaper in US stores. Many American companies made good profits by exporting t

o the newly open markets or by outsourcing manufacturing to cheaper and/or better factories outside the US.

Buildings at Tesla’s Sh上海千花网女神会所 nearly complete

Construction on 上海千花网女神会所the buildings at Tesla’s Shanghai plant has almost completed and the production equ

ipment is being prepared for installation, the auto news website Eelectrek reported on Sunday.

However, a representative at Tesla’s China branch said the plant is not yet finished, and these details are the same as th

e news released at the Tesla shareholders’ meeting, according to National Business Daily.

With an investment of over 50 billion yuan ($7.22 billion), the Shanghai plant, or Gigafactory 3, is the co

mpany’s first manufacturing facility outside the US and the first wholly foreign-funded automotive production project in China.

China is the world’s largest new energy automobile market, so

having manufacturing capacity in the country will help Tesla avoid increasingly unce

decline from 85 million in 2018 to 42 million in 2040. In th

he next five to seven years, China’s policy support for new energy vehicles will drive g

lobal growth,” said Kou Nannan, head of research at Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

As early as in 2012, the State Council introduced a pipeline to guide the development of the natio

n’s EVs, with a goal of producing 2 million units and selling 5 million EVs by 2020. Later on, cent

ral and local governments carried out a series of subsidy policies in the NEV industry, such as purchase tax exemption an

d purchase subsidies, to offer greater support to the industrialization of China’s NEV industry.

According to the agency, China will specifically lead in the e-bus market. It is estimated that by

2025, China’s e-bus fleet share will reach 50 percent, and by 2040, the ratio will rise to roughly 80 percent.
