Jason Yu, general ma亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦arket consultancy Ka

ntar Worldpanel China, said the quality and good prices of Costco’s food products are a major

attraction to Chinese consumers, as the demand for such products has grown. The retailer could bol亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

ster its fresh food offerings to increase their customer retention rate here, Yu said.

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦”As Chinese consumers put more stress on healthy products and higher living standar

ds, the retail industry’s growth has remained robust in China and the momentum will continue,” he said.

Wang Caidi, 57-year-old retiree in Shanghai, left the store with avocados, cheese, m亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

ilk and a pizza. She said quality foods enticed her to travel the 40 kilometers to the store.

“The products are of good value. I may come here one month later when it is less crowded,” she said.

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦Membership at Costco Shanghai has been available since July 1, with an annual membership

card priced at 299 yuan ($42). The company put its Chinese membership at over 120,000.

The store, with a shopping area of 14,000 square met亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

ers, is located in suburban Minhang district, nearly 30 km from the city’s center.

Richard Zhang, Costco’s senior vice-president for Asia, said on A

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信ug 20 that the location was influenced by the presence of seven international schools i

n the area, indicating a large group of middle class consumers who are Costco’s targets.

He also said that the market has matured sufficiently for Chinese consumers to be “ready to pa亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

y for a membership card”. Little effort was spent on educating the market about membership.

Costco is the world’s largest membership-only re

ina. The latest opened in June in northern Shanghai, only 10 km from the Costco outlet.

Prices of stocks on new tech-focused board likely to diverge, say experts?亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

Stocks on Shanghai’s STAR Market extended their gains on Thursday, and analysts

?亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦said prices of stocks on the new tech-focused board may diverge with lower volatility in the near future.

The whole A-share market may be on an up

board may str?亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦女神会所ain the liquidity of other submarkets and the expected bottoming out of economic growth.

After a spectacular average gain of 140 percent on Monday and a retreat on Tuesday, t

On Thursday, stocks on the STAR Market ended up by 5.5 percent on a?亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

The value of shares that changed hands on the new board was around 29 billion yu?亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

“Trading of the STAR Market has been relatively rational, without signs of notable excessive speculation,” said W

Boris Johnson has won the United Kingdom’s leadership election 92,153 vo

tes to 46,656, becoming prime minister and leader of the ruling Conservative Party.亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

Johnson had been widely expected to win ever since Theresa May, the nation’s outgoing prime minister, announced on May 24

that she was resigning following heavy criticism of her handling of the UK’s exit from the European Union.

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦In a short but impassioned acceptance spee

ch, Johnson thanked his leadership opponent Jeremy Hunt and May. He said that the p

arty will “deliver Brexit, reunite the country and defeat” the leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn.

“That’s what we are going to do,” Johnson sai亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

d. “We know that we can do it, the people in our country know that we can do it, and I know that we will do it.”

Johnson and Hunt were the last people standing in the leadership battle that had initially involv

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦ed 10 hopefuls and was ultimately decided in a postal vote open to the party’s 160,000 members.

Johnson takes over as party leader immediately and will be sworn in as prime minister on Wednesday.

He was an outspoken critic of May and says he will take the UK out of the EU on Oct 31, with or without a deal with the political bloc.亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

Following the result, May congratulated Johnson and said he will have her “full support from the back benches”.

“Many congratulations to Boris Johnson on being elected leader of the Conservatives-we now need to work togethe亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

r to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government,” she wrote on Twitter.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage wrote on social media: “I wish Boris Johnson well as Prime Minis

However, to develop Sino-Japanese relations in a way that meet the requ

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦Politically, the two sides should abide by the principles enshrined in the four political doc

On the economic front, the two sides should deepen cooperat

The cultural bonds between the two countries need to be further strengthened. And the two sides should expedite t

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c亚博app官方下载安卓乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
