enjoying the exemption上海千花坊de pure electric com

l cars, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and fuel-cell commercial cars.

Since 2018, with an updated policy, the authorities have been rolling out lists of specific上海千花坊

NEVs and small engine vehicles regularly for them to get tax cuts or exemptions.

上海千花坊Cui said the extended tax exemption to more NEVs this time will especi

ally better support the development of commercial NEVs, whose owners are m

ore sensitive to prices and taxes, because they usually own a large number of such vehicles.上海千花坊女神会所

Inclusion into the newest tax exemption list also endorses the quality and technical

上海千花坊capabilities of such NEVs, which will help the manufactures to build brand image and attract customers, he said.

Qiu Kaijun, an industry observer and founder of Evobserver, an influential social med上海千花坊女神会所

ia platform in the NEV industry, said the vehicle and vessel tax cut measures are part of the authorities’ bro

ader efforts to boost the development of the NEV industry, as they aim to encourage purchases of NEVs, although t上海千花坊

he effects are not as influential as other incentives including financial subsidies and rebates of purchase tax.

The NEV industry in China has been developing very fast in recent years, as the co上海千花坊

untry pushes forward with efforts to build a globally competitive automobile industry.

上海千花坊女神会所There are two main points that Chinese audiences are unhappy with. First, in the trailer there are shots of Fujian, which is ab

out 3,000 kilometers away from historical home of Mulan in history. Second, the heroine Mulan, starring Cr

ystal Liu, wears heavy makeup that is appealing to Westerners’ eyes, not Chinese eyes.上海千花坊

Perhaps the criticism is unfair as Disney has designed the movie to please Western audiences, who c

上海千花坊女神会所are more about the story than the historical facts. That’s why Chinese audiences should not expect the f

ilm to have accurate Chinese elements even though the story is Chinese and almost all the leading actors are Chinese or

at least ethnic Chinese. It shows Chinese elements through the eyes of Westerners.

In 2018, NEV sales in China maintained robust growth of 61.7 percent

year-on-year, although the broader auto market sales contracted 2.8 percent year-on-y

ear, according to statistics from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

For the January-May period this year, China’s NEV production and s

ales reached 480,000 units and 464,000 units, up 46 percent and 41.5 percent y

ear-on-year, respectively, according to Xin Guobin, vice-minister of industry and information technology.

China had 340 million motor vehicles by the end of June this year, while the number of NEVs had reached 3.44 mi

llion, according to figures released by the Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday.

Scientific American and chair of the Emerging Technologies Steering Committee.上海千花坊

“Now that we are well into the fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s critical we ensure

humanity is served by these new innovations so we can continue to prosper,” DiChristina said.

上海千花坊The 2019 World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions was h

eld in Northern Peal Dalian, Northeast China Liaoning province, between July 1 and 3.上海千花坊女神会所

Boasting the theme of “Leadership 4.0: Succeeding in a New Era of Globalization”, the forum attracted more than

1,800 business leaders, policymakers and experts from over 120 countries to participate in more than 200 sessions.

Ecolab Inc, a United States-based global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services上海千花坊

, will invest more on innovation in China and get focused on three of its core businesses, its top management said.

上海千花坊女神会所”A big area of focus for us more recently has been digital innovation,” said Jill Wyant, executive vice-president of regions, Ecolab. She is also the president of

the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud com

puting platforms and solutions. We’re in the process of extending that relationship in china. We’ve hired a chief d上海千花坊

igital officer and hired someone to help us look after digital infrastructure and architecture.”

Ecolab made a multimillion-dollar investment in innovation in China. The co

上海千花坊女神会所mpany built a research and development center in Shanghai around a decade ago.

“We want more than double our business in China in the medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for so

me reasons. One of which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”

Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.

“We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic a

nd societal trends, such as the emerging of the middle class, water scarcity issues and the aging population, an

d our business is in line with the government’s commitment toward a more healthy and beautiful China. The ma

rket is huge and we are a good fit and well-placed to grasp the opportunities here,” said Wyant.

According to her, the company has to focus to succeed in China.

“It’s a massive country. It’s rife with opportunities, and it’s got a very aggressive and vibrant customer set, but als

o a competitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring a

dvantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult

ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.

Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所

ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo

reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra

de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所

titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.

An important player for global governance

The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm

ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves

tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne

gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and

expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.

On the one hand, Xi’s speech brought hope to the world economy at a time when glo

bal economic recovery is facing challenges and uncertainties thanks to the rise of trade protectionism and unila

teralism in some economies since 2017. In fact, protectionism and unilateralism have become an impediment to global growth.

Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

Seeing trains rushing by with plenty of unused space ha

has long been a sore point for freight train operators and managers, because low utiliza

tion of the cargo capacity raises running costs and makes the service less appealing to potential customers.上海千花坊女神会所

“The system collects and incorporates the operational information of all the freight trains involv

ed in the China Express Railway into one holistic platform,” Ma said.上海千花坊

The inland port cooperates with major rail service providers and customs in Kazakhstan, Russia and Germany, as well as major ticket-booking portals for ferries and railways across large parts of Europe.上海千花坊

“At present, no other trade hub in China is able to amass such a huge trove of data as we do with our system,” Ma said.

According to the port area authorities, during a recent trial of the system freight trains r

eturning from the West were carrying goods at an average 80 percent of their full capacity.上海千花坊女神会所

Between 2016 and the middle of this month, more than 2,400 trains had hauled goods acro

ss the port area, via about 20 routes of the China Express Railway, and made their way to 25 cities in 18 countries.

上海千花坊In addition to improving the efficiency and connectivity of the China Railway Ser

vice, the port area is also expected to provide a major boost for the regional economy.

One of the most popular commodities heading west from Xinjiang is a tomato-based sauce, accord上海千花坊女神会所

ing to Zheng Weiguo, vice-manager of Urumqi International Land Port Multimodal Transport Co.

“Last year, about 50,000 metric tons of the tomato-based sauce were exported to Russia alone,” he said. Behi上海千花坊女神会所

nd him, heavy trucks loaded with multicolored containers were revving up to transfer goods onto an approaching freight train.

It can take as long as 50 days for the sauce to reach its farthest destination, Naples in Italy, by sea, setting off from Tianjin Port in North China.

“The express train services have cut the journey time to about 12 days, allowing Chinese agricultu

ral goods to overtake their global competitors,” said Liu Shaohua, deputy director of the port area.

“We have already received positive feedback from wholesale buyers overseas, who have praised the rail service for its speed and low rate of da

mage (to goods). In the future, we plan to further boost confidence in products made in Xinjiang, and expand avenues fo

r overseas sales through the real-time monitoring system and the sophisticated freight rail network.”
