n the first half of 2019, a total of 6.86 million used cars

上海夜网were sold across China, up 3.9 percent year-on-year. Overall sales hit 43.4 billio

Luo Lei, deputy secretary-general of the China Automobile Dealers Association, said earlier that the booming market is tha

nks to the central government’s decision to remove limits on the flow of used vehicles across regions.

上海夜网Since last year, China has ramped up efforts to scrap limits on cross-region flow of used

cars, as part of the country’s broader push to make the automobile industry globally competitive.

“This will encourage consumers to switch cars more frequently and

help enterprises to adjust their plans and explore untapped demand,” Luo said.上海夜网品茶微信

China has about 240 million cars on the road, data from CADA showed, yet about 78 percent are from first-and second-tier cities.

“But demand for used vehicles chiefly comes from consumers in small cities, resulting in huge dema

上海夜网品茶微信nd-supply imbalances geographically,” according to data from Youxin, an online used car dealer.

To tap into the demand, major car dealers including Renrenche, Youxin and CA

RS are all gearing up to enter more cities and provinces to boost market share.上海夜网

Major ride-hailing firm Didi is also entering the mar

ket by buying used vehicles directly from Renrenche in a bid to lower costs.

上海夜网品茶微信”The transaction volume between the two sides is likely to exceed

2 million vehicles in three years,” said Renrenche in an earlier statement.

Major internet behemoths are also joining the fray.

He hopes that his photographic observations will shed light on the plight of the underprivileged, and that in doing so ma上海夜网品茶微信

上海夜网Xie says he has realized that with newly built, well equipped classro

oms and campuses, urgent attention is also needed for rural children’s physical we

llbeing, including issues such as malnutrition, tooth decay, shortsightedness and obesity.

One problem has been food that is appealing but of low nutritional value being sold n上海夜网品茶微信

For the past 10 years Xie has also been working on a project aimed at recording the lives of migrant workers in cities.

In addition to taking photos of such people, Xie is keen to find out as much as he can about their situation, eager to get them the help they need.上海夜网

Xie’s peer Wang Wenlan says of him: “He does not choose a subject unless he has some idea ab

Visa-free access to th上海夜网nd province of Hain

nan will likely 上海夜网become easier and available to more people for longer periods due to proposed

上海夜网品茶微信changes in existing policy, the Ministry of Public Security’s State Immigration Administration said on Wednesday.

Foreign visitors from 59 countries will no longer have to book their trips in advance through travel agenc

ies, and will instead be able to apply for visa-free entry on their own or through organizations that in上海夜网

vite them to Hainan, according to draft changes to the policy released by the administration.

Visit purposes eligible for visa-free entry will be extended from travel to include bu上海夜网品茶微信

siness and trade, family visits, medical treatment, exhibitions and sports competitions.

Jia Tongbin, the administration’s deputy director in charge of foreign vi上海夜网

sitors, said at a news conference in Beijing that visa-free stays longer than 30 days will even

tually be permitted in order to meet Hainan’s needs for foreign expertise and to boost the local tourism sector. The list o上海夜网品茶微信

f countries whose citizens are eligible for visa-free entry will be adjusted in a timely manner, Jia added.

Qu Yunhai, deputy director of the administration, said the policy changes will support development上海夜网

of the Hainan Free Trade Zone by providing greater convenience for people in high-tech, tourism and services sectors.

Three pilot policies will be launched in August to make driving in Hainan more convenient for foreign visitors.

上海夜网品茶微信The first will enable visitors staying for short periods to apply for temporary driving permits without having to undergo health checks.

The draft changes are in addition to Hainan’s existing visa-free entr

y policy, which took effect on May 1, 2018. That policy opened the province’s doors to t上海夜网品茶微信

ourists from 59 countries for stays of up to 30 days, on condition that they register with travel agencies.

“As the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Zone and free trade port

are accelerating and Hainan is becoming more internationalized, there will be an inc

reasing number of international tourists, entrepreneurs and scholars coming to Hainan for travel and in

vestment in the future,” Jia said, adding that Hainan received 447,000 foreign visitors from the 59 countries fr

om May 1, 2018, to June 30 this year, an increase of 18.8 percent compared to the year-earlier period.

In April last year, China announced the decision to supp

port Hainan in developing the whole island into a pilot free trade zone, the 12th and the largest in the

country, to gradually explore and steadily promote the establishment of a free trade port with Chinese characteristics.

The Haikou Jiangdong New District covers 298 square kilometers o

n the east coast of Haikou, and will have two parts: a 106-sq-km ecological region boasting a key n

ational wetland natural reserve, and a 192-sq-km area that will serve both industrial and urban purposes.

The provincial government said Haikou should pay great attenti

on to ensure that environmental quality is advanced in an all-round way while developing the new ben

chmark area. This will integrate such new features as headquarters economy, commercial and financial business, inter

national consumption, cultural exchanges, and scientific and technological innovation.

The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

Mei said that although the ban will have certain impac

A recent report by Dongxing Securities said the US ban on Huawei will foster dem

“We see remarkable room for growth in the next-generation 5G and consumer electronics products in the future,” the report sa

id. “As the US has imposed restrictions on Huawei’s purchases of US technology, some major domestic chi

pmakers will step in to offer the supply. As their market share grows in the future, they will gradually be able to g

ain core capabilities and increase their presence globally amid the fierce competition.”

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Thursda

that enterprises in any country will not disregard their own interests and blindly follow other countries’ “political command”.

“Most countries have always been highly alert to US government acts of

resorting to state power to crack down on companies in other countries, disrupt m

arkets and obstruct mutually beneficial cooperation between other countries,” Lu said.

But the positive development is also accompanied by some concerns. A string of Japanese

carriers, including NTT Docomo, said they were also considering delaying the launch of Huawei’s new sma

rtphones. Their hesitance is due to uncertainty about Google’s previous announcement that it would restrict H

uawei’s access to updates of the Android operating system in compliance with a US ban.

ess. And the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiativ althoug

ugh criticized by much of the West, and the US in particular-could bring dramatic

improvements in physical and digital connectivity to Central Asia and parts of Africa.

Further advances in critical infrastructure will create important growth opportunities for developing countries via e-commerce, mobile paym

ents, and related financial services. The experience of China suggests that these digital platforms, and the ecosy

stems that develop around them, are powerful engines for incremental, highly inclusive growth.

China, of course, is a very large, homogenous market. If smaller, lower-income developing countries are to bene

fit from equally rapid inclusive growth, the digital platforms will have to be regional and international in scope.
