However, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng, said in a microblog cite

上海千花网品茶微信d by International Financial News these demands are unfair to the company. When

consumers compare the bare prices of the two types, He claimed, 2019 model buyers got lots of subsidies.上海千花网

An insider from Xpeng Motors told the newspaper the company started to promote a favorable poli

上海千花网cy by the end of May giving a total of 20,000 yuan to each consumer, and earlier buyers of 2019 G3 mode

ls affected by the government’s subsidy-cutting scheme have also been covered by the policy.

上海千花网品茶微信Therefore, the actual price paid by 2019 G3 buyers is comparatively lower than the 2020 G3 prices, the source added.

Xpeng Motors is not an exceptional case amid fast growth in the electric ve

hicle industry. In March, Tesla’s decision to adjust prices down also roused early bu上海千花网

yers’ anger, asking the company to subsidize the price difference or cooperate with them to return their cars.

But a lawyer interviewed by International Financial News said no legal ground exists to support these buyers’ requests.

上海千花网品茶微信Sun Shaojun, a motoring analyst, said Xpeng’s case represents a new

normal for the sector, as the electric vehicle industry sees exponentially faster development.

What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he broke w上海千花网品茶微信

ith his Cubist painting, but some also has to do with the fact his interests extended far beyond painting.

Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art wo上海千花网

rld for decades, paving the way for many of the important artistic movements of the last century.

As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picasso’s poetry and oth上海千花网品茶微信

er written works are often overlooked in discussions of his long and varied career.

The artist did not begin to write until the age of 53. His literary endeavors上海千花网

resulted in hundreds of poems with a unique fusion of words and visual imagery.

Shanghai strengthens 上海千花网tionsuangzhou’s Tianhe a

Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub

With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信

rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an

international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t

上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.

Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove

rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信

By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj

上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city

‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis

trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网

eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.

上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen

t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.

More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网

sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go

上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.

With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c

alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信

llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr

eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di

strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信

As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie

s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u

p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信

Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent

of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.

By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent

erprises, as well as more than 50,000 science and technology enterprises.

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d

上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch

ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da

rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所

anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.

“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu

nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d

ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int

elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.

Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所

lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.

“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b

usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

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.

The FDA, which also regulates the cosmetics and beauty industry, says it is “concerned”

about the growing number of CBD products that make unproven health claims.

Not all cosmetic products need the FDA’s approval before they hit the market, but the FDA c

It’s estimated that about 64 million US citizens have tried CBD in the past two years,

according to a January 2019 Consumer Reports survey of more than 4,000 people.

As for the size of the market, total sales of hemp-based CBD products are expected to

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i

s no issue over the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea,” he said.

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar

itime territory and airspace, and has conducted intense intelligence gathering and special drills in the region.

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA

has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands in accordance with security needs. This is within

the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”

True, the first quarter of 2019 yielded better-than-expe

ted results. But the higher rate of FAI growth was to a large extent driven by a strong increase in investment in real estate, which is l

ikely to weaken sooner or later owing to the government’s commitment to cooling China’s “real-esta

te fever”. And, given the trade frictions with the US, China’s export performance for the rest of 2019 is highly uncertain.

To compensate for declining investment in real estate and weakening exports, China must maintain reasonable growth in inf

rastructure investment. To that end, the government should pursue higher spending (taking advantage of a strong fis

cal position), supported by accommodative monetary policy (amid very low inflation).

Fiscal and monetary expansion may be out of fashion among China’s mainstream economists, who insist that struct

ural adjustment must be the priority. But it could go a long way toward bolstering China’s economic per

formance in 2019, without impeding structural reform. The challenge is to strike the right balance.
