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

n yuan, according to the latest data from the China Automobile Dealers Association.上海夜网品茶微信

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.

Those who won government support are mainly firs

Other cities among the 16 include Central China’s Zhengzhou, Wuhan and Cha

China plans to provide more public exercise facilities and further promote awareness of sport, a senior official said on Friday.上海乌托邦女神会所

Rapid urbanization and growing public enthusiasm for athletic events mean public sport facilities can no longer meet dem

and, said Lang Wei, director of the “sports for all” department at the General Administration of Sport.

The sports area per capita in China increased from 1.46 squa上海乌托邦

re meters in 2014 to 1.66 sq m last year, the administration said. But that still lags behind

developed countries, with the figure in the United States at 16 sq m, and that in Japan 19 sq m.

上海乌托邦女神会所Lang said public access to sport stadiums and playgrounds at educational institutions w

ill be expanded, and more facilities for popular sports including soccer, badminton and baseball will be built.

The association said China’s national flower should meet four criteria for consideration: it shoul上海乌托邦

d originate in China and be ubiquitous in many regions, it should be beautiful in shape and color to

represent Chinese culture and personality, it should have profound historical grounding and be widely kn上海乌托邦女神会所

own to the public and it should be used in many fields in ways that benefit the public.

China is among the few countries without an official national flower.上海乌托邦

Many netizens said they were surprised to discover it did not have one, with some saying they always assumed it was the peony.上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦女神会所With a 4,000-year history in China, the peony is widely seen around the country. Boasting bright colors and an elegant app

“The peony was the national flower in the Tang Dynasty (618-907),” said Dong Yan, an offi上海乌托邦女神会所

used as a food and traditional Chinese herb, so it also has strong economic value.”

Barbey, 78, says he saw former premier Zhou Enlai many times (during the 1973 visit). “The trip by t

he French president lasted for five or six days, and Zhou was with the delegation every day for reasons of protocol.”上海419品茶微信

Barbey recalls that whenever Pompidou visited Beijing, Shanghai or Datong in Shanxi prov

上海419ince, where the French president traveled to see archaeological sites, he saw Zhou every day.

“Zhou is a special figure to the French people. He spent some years in France as a young m

an, among the generation of Chinese students who came to the country on a study-work program.”上海419

Barbey remembers asking Zhou’s interpreter, a woman in her mid-50s, how many French

上海419interpreters of her caliber were there in China-and she answered there was “about 11”. When he vis

ited Shanghai, he was told that there were only three French people living in the city.上海419品茶微信

One of the most iconic photos Barbey took from the 1973 visit is a portrait of Zhou when he

accompanied Pompidou on a boat trip around the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

上海419The image is not included in the show at the National Art Museum, but a portrait of another i

mportant figure who had a connection with France-a snapshot of Ba Jin sunbathing in 1980-is on display. Th上海419

e prominent Chinese author also studied in France for two years during the late 1920s.

“I met him very briefly in Shanghai at his house. He still spoke French,” says Barbey.上海419

The warm tones and sharpness of Barbey’s imagery also pres

上海419品茶微信erve the vibrant details of people’s everyday lives at a time when taking photos remained a lux

ury for many. Many of the scenes and ways of life have now vanished from the fast-paced metropolis. For example, one pho

to Barbey took in Nanjing shows boats with elongated sails traveling along the Yangtze River, while another photo show上海419

the ochre red of the imperial palace of the Forbidden City and the morning blue of the Shanghai Bund.”
