上海千花坊品茶微信To cut fuel consumption and promote the popularity of new energy vehic
les, China has imposed tough regulations on passenger carmakers and importers, who will
be given two separate scores for traditional vehicle energy efficiency and new energy vehicle production.上海千花坊
If they fail to amass enough credits for either traditional vehicles or new energy veh
上海千花坊icles, they may face penalties and their vehicles may not even be allowed on the road.
The new draft also changes the amount of credits that a carmaker can earn by manufacturing new energy vehicles.
Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, especi上海千花坊品茶微信
ally international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.
Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy enviro上海千花坊
nment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.
上海千花坊品茶微信The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will be made in
China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.
So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.上海千花坊
The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 u
nits during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.
上海千花坊品茶微信The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.
For instance, an electric car that can run 350 kilometers on one charge would earn 5 credits for上海千花坊
its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be reduced to 2.5,
上海千花坊品茶微信ccording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.
He added that the proposed policy encourag

Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou
ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊
hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.
上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the
Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou
nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co
上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.
“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i
dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊
uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”
上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy
mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co
nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v
iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所
“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu
上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in
ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c
ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee
l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所
Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’
s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De
上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and
orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.
Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment
Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊
During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所
Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral
上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.
In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?
Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

her’s loss, he said, adding that they should seek mutual benefit and win-win results.
