After stocks plummeted last month, US markets are surging once again, on hopes of restarting trade talks with China.
上海后花园May this year was one of the worst months of May for US stocks in several years, with US markets seeing wild swings amid the US-initiated trade dispute with China.
But in a sudden about-face, stocks skyrocketed this week. The main rise came Tuesday after US President Donald Trump hel上海后花园
d a telephone conversation with Chinese President Xi Jinping saying looking forward to meeting at this month’s G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.
The news caused the US Dow Jones Industrial Average to surge nearly 400 points. Stocks上海后花园品茶微信
continued to rise on Wednesday, on signals from the US Federal Reserve that it could cut interest rates later.
上海后花园James M. Roberts, an economist at the Heritage Foundation, told Xinhua that the news about the two presidents’ meeting next week is “certainly encouraging.”
“It is not surprising that markets have reacted favorably,” Roberts said. “Assumin
g that the meeting stays on track, markets should continue to view the upcoming G20 hopefully.”上海后花园品茶微信
Desmond Lachman, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told Xinhua that markets were buoyed Tuesday
by Trump’s announcement that talks with China would restart, as well as by European Central Bank (ECB) Preside
nt Mario Draghi’s indication that he might soon respond to European economic weakening by restarting the ECB’s bond buying program.上海后花园品茶微信
That gave the impetus for global bond yields to decline and stocks to rally, he said.
Experts said that markets would be pleased by an agreement by both sides to continue talking.
“Both President Trump and President Xi would benefit from a favorable outcome to their bilateral meeting and to the G20 overall,” Roberts said.上海后花园品茶微信
Chief trade negotiators of China and the United States will communicate in line with the
instructions made by the two heads of state, China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday.
Negotiating teams from both sides will earnestly implement the instructions and make preparations fo
r the meeting of the two heads of state during the G20 Summit in Osaka, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a news conference.
“We believe both sides can find ways to properly solve their problems through equitable dialogue and accommodating each other’s legitimate concerns,” he said.
Beijing and Washington had been hammering out a trade deal, but the talks stalled last month after the Trump administration hiked tariffs on $200 bi
llion worth of Chinese goods and threatened to impose further tariffs on additional Chinese imports.
Lachman said US markets would be kept moving if Trump took further US import tariffs on China off the table at the G20 meeting.
This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the show. “Witne
上海419论坛ssing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”
Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwrite
r Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers‘ Stadium. At the上海419论坛
packed venue, the then 25-year-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My N
ame, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.
In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing tog上海419论坛
ether He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from
the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.
“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young bands
,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different musi上海419论坛上海品茶
c styles. They come together and contribute to the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”
Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribu上海419论坛上海品茶
te both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie bands emerged in the country while developing their own unique styles. The pu
nk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.
The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also usher上海419论坛上海品茶
ed in a golden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first
rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.
“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Inste
ad, we were hungry for rock music and found any possible way to get the latest music from We
stern bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perform onstage because the audiences were
smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”
hina’s metro syst上海龙凤419品茶微信em has seen burgeoning growth over the past decades, with up close to 4,600 kilometers built since
the country’s first subway line opened in Beijing back in 1969, according to the 21st Century Business Herald.
Currently, 33 Chinese cities have subways, of which 21 entered the rail transit era in the last 10 years, the newspaper said.
Shanghai led all other Chinese cities with operating mileage of 669 kilometers as of Jun
e 6 this year, followed by Beijing and Guangzhou, with 617 kilometers and 473 kilometers.
Shenzhen’s 285 kilometers of operating mileage won its fourth spot, bu
t the figure lagged far behind the first three, while narrowing the gap with cities such as W
uhan, Chengdu and Chongqing, the newspaper added by compiling relevant data.
As a whole, 13 out of the 33 cities ran lines exceeding 100 kilometers in the same period.

lung diseases at Xuanwu Hospital, Capital Medical University, in Beijing.
In the capital, the percentage of smokers decreased to 22.3 percent from 23.4 percent in 2014-a decrease of 200,000 smo
kers over the past five years-Beijing Municipal Health Commission said on Thursday.
Following the adoption of a revised tobacco control regulation in June, 2015, which bans smoking in all indoor public space
s and workplaces, legal violations involving smoking in public places such as hospitals and restaurants in Beijing ha
ve significantly decreased, Gao Xiaojun, spokesman of the commission, said at a news conference.
Commission said that more than 231,000 college students graduated from universities in
Beijing last year, but 37.5 percent of employed graduates chose to work outside the capital.
A female college student surnamed Zhang said that she chose to w
ork in Wuhan, Hubei province, after graduating from Tsinghua University in June, 2018.
“The biggest reason driving me away from Beijing was the living cost,” she said. “Tho
ugh I can earn 8,000 ($1,160) or even 10,000 yuan a month in Beijing, the rent may cost me 3,000 yuan or more ea
ch month, let alone other expenses such as meals, transportation and getting together with friends.”
In contrast, some so-called new first-tier cities like Chengdu, Sichua
n province; Hangzhou, Zhejiang province; and Wuhan have sprung up as new at
tractions to college graduates for their cheaper living costs and preferential policies to newcomers.

During Asian Civilization Week, the public can attend several cu

“Our aim is to help more people understand Asian culture and attend related activities,” he said.
