Zeng added that the consumers’ demands have become more p
ersonalized and diversified. “They have higher requirements for high-quality and cost-effe
ctive products, which brings out huge opportunities for cross-border e-commerce industry.”
It is noteworthy that the post-90s generation favor niche
and designer brands, and also are addicted to livestreaming videos, Zeng said.
Founded in 2010, Ymatou is a consumer-to-consumer or C2C marketplace engaged in cross-border e-commerce.
By the end of the second quarter in 2018, the site had about 50 million users and hired more than 60,000 overseas buyers in 83
countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea and Australia.

he’d spoken with investors, he hadn’t secured anything. The SEC said the tweet was “false and misleading.”
The settlement allowed Musk to stay on as CEO, but he had to give up his role as chair
man of Tesla. He and Tesla were fined a total of $40 million, which Musk paid himself.

the original settlement in October, will decide whether Musk’s February 19 tweet viol

The event is properly called a “fireball,” NASA’s term for “exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to to be seen over a very wide area.”
With an impact energy of 173 kilotons, December’s fireball was the second-most powerful to enter Earth’s atmosp
here in 30 years. You may recall the first — it was that huge, blinding fireball that rocked parts of Russia in 2013.
many Chinese leave their hometowns to make a living in big cities, where they live alone. This makes it inevitable that they will do things on their own at times.
“Due to life’s stresses, sometimes they will actively look for the chance to escape from social interaction to enjoy solitude. As a re
sult, dining, traveling and singing karaoke or watching movies alone has become more common,” she said.
Chen added that the perception of single people has witnessed profound
changes, as there is no longer any stigma attached to them and many prefer to remain alone.
“Whether in TV shows or movies, there are increasing scenarios that tell people they sho
uld remain independent, and it is possible to live a nice life without getting married, especially for women,” she said.

I always look forward to this time of year. A cold winter has ended, spring has sprung and a sure confirmation is the convening of
the two sessions: The National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. It’s a chance to see political, bu
siness and cultural leaders, and to observe the beautiful diversity of China’s traditionally attired ethnic minorities. F
or me, a policy wonk, I especially look forward to watching Premier Li Keqiang’s Government Work Report, whi
ch reviews the nation’s past progress and current challenges, and sets present and future goals.
Usually the GWR is upbeat, reflecting China’s dramatic economic a
nd social progress of recent decades. But the ironic apocryphal Chinese curse often quoted in the
West – “may you live in interesting times” – is true this year. Premier Li did not try to hide this fact. He admitted that Chi
na faced a challenging and complicated international and domestic environment last year that severely im
pacted its economy, although previously announced targets were met. This year will be no less challenging.
hborhood, which covers 1.5 square kilometers, is home to around 33,000 households and 82,000 residents.
To promote community governance, the neighborhood has launched various projects si
nce 2012 to facilitate communication between residents and enhance “neighborly spirit”.
One of the most successful activities is its rooftop garden project.
“Our rooftop garden began with the Meilian building in 2015, with support from enterprises a
nd managed by residents,” said Wang Yanfeng, deputy director of the Caojiadu neighborhood Party working committee.
It all started with 14 containers on the rooftop to grow vegetables and flowers. Each miniature garden is taken care of by two fa
milies, of which one has at least one elderly person at home and the other has one or more children.
Harvested vegetables are sent to the neighborhood’s senior residents,
cooked for the nutritious community lunch or sold during charity bazaars, Wang said.
The miniature gardens were upgraded in 2017 to include a broader variety of vegetables and expan
ded to more rooftops in Caojiadu, which also helps children learn about cultivating crops and vegetables.
interests, but they should stick to justice in major affairs otherwise double standards will prevail.
Europe does not feel any threat from China’s missiles. In security, Europe is caught in the middle of Moscow and Washington.
Europe is not the source of China’s security pressure. But Germany has dragged China into its own security pli
ght, which not only damages China’s interests, but also leads Europeans in the wrong direction for their security concerns.
Globalization has remolded the existing power pattern and will also change the world’s political landscape. The era that Europe’s interest
s are tied with the Western camp is ending. America First will become the dominant principle in tr
ans-Atlantic ties. Europe is destined to fall behind the US and needs to recalculate its orientation.
As the world’s second largest economy, China needs defense capabilities which should be more powerful than it has now so as t

The Asia-Pacific is far from reaching a balance of power. Germans are clear abo

she would not keep quiet in exchange for various conditions and the Western media is backing her stand. The Swedish Mi
nistry of Foreign Affairs said it already launched an internal investigation into Lindstedt, who had been appointed for an
other position in the Swedish government in March. Lindstedt has now been recalled to her country.
Is Angela Gui telling the truth? The Chinese Embassy in Sweden has responded that China has never and will never authorize
anyone to be in contact with her. China handled Gui’s case in accordance with the law and legal p
rocedures. People need to be aware of Angela’s unique position as Gui Minhai’s daughter; and, considering her lack of ex
perience in distinguishing complex issues, it is necessary for people to be cautious about her story.
However, the role of Ambassador Lindstedt is also part of this. If she did arrange a meeting between Angela Gui a
nd the Chinese businessmen not authorized by Beijing, then we can make the following analysis.
First, there are domestic groups in Sweden that hope the relationship between Sweden and China will not be a
ffected by Gui’s incident in the long term. They are willing to facilitate public discussions between Stockholm and B
eijing on this matter. Ambassador Lindstedt herself is a representative of such groups.
LONDON — Queen Elizabeth’s 97-year-old husband Prince Philip has voluntarily given up his driving licence after a crash last month, Buckingham Palace said on Saturday.
Philip escaped without injury on Jan 17 when the Land Rover he was driving flippe
d in a collision with a car close to the royals’ Sandringham residence in eastern England.
“After careful consideration The Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to volun
tarily surrender his driving licence,” the royal palace said in a statement.
The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee and a 45-year-old wo
man passenger in the car, which also had a nine-month-old baby on board, sustained a broken wrist.
Witnesses said Philip pulled into a main road from a drive.
Philip, who suggested low sun had affected his sight for the crash, also re
ceived a warning from police for driving without a seatbelt two days after the crash.
Philip retired from public life in 2017, although he still occasionally appears with his 92-year-old wife at official events.
There is no legal age in Britain to stop driving, but drivers over 70 must renew their licences every three years.
