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

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

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.

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

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
