years ago, he says, enjoying a wide range of styles, young bands and musical influences.

 上海千花网”I’m keen on putting together a group of good-looking young singer-songwriters, guitarists,

bassists and drummers to form a rock band,” Liu says. “They could compete with th

e pop idols not only with their looks but also by winning a large foll

owing with their great songs and technique. I’ve been dreaming of this for 10 y 上海千花网

Britain’s Conservative Party leadership contest f

rontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his previous comments made on B

rexit negotiations, saying there is only a “million-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal 上海千花网.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “co

me what may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

 上海千花网女神会所”I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejec

ted three times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any ch

anges to the controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October. 上海千花网女神会所

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no

-deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea tha 上海千花网女神会所

t he would prorogue – or suspend – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.

“I’m not attracted to archaic devices like proroguing,” he said.

Meanwhile, Britain’s leading tax and spending think tank has said that Hunt’s promise to

reduce corporation tax to the lowest rates in the advanced world would only “exacerbate” the UK’s financial problems.

Freight trains on track to drive Xinjiang economy

The China Railway Express service is carrying goods across Eurasia, attracting more custom

上海乌托邦ers and generating profits. Cui Jia and Wang Xiaoyu report from Urumqi and Alashankou, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of stories focusing on the Xinjiang Uygur autonomou上海乌托邦上海品茶

s region, looking at developments in the economy, the cultural and business sectors, and poverty alleviation measures.

With the completed customs clearance documents for 80 imported high-end cars in his ha

nd, Zhang Xiafei arrived at the customs office at the land port of Alataw Pass, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.上海乌托邦

Within minutes, a customs officer had logged all the details required for the vehicles to enter the Chinese market via a freight train service that connects Europe and China.

“These Porsche cars left Poland nine days ago. In a few days, they will arrive in Chongqing. The China Railway Express service is very reliable and punctual. More important, it has helped cut transport上海乌托邦上海品茶ation times by half compared with moving the goods by sea,” said Zhang, an employee of Jie’an Logistics, a freight company that has used the service regularly in the past year.

The China Railway Express, aka the China-Europe freight train, is a network of rail services that carry cargo between China and Europe via Central Asia. Nearly 70 percent of the trains use the Alataw Pass, a land port in the Gobi Desert on China’s border with Kazakhstan.

上海乌托邦上海品茶In March 2011, the first such service left the southwestern city of Chongqing headed for Duisburg, Germany. By the end of last month, 5,900 China Railway Express and China-Central Asia trains had used the border crossing.

The rising number of services and their growing popularity has made Northwest China’s largest land port busier than ever.

From January to the end of last month, 851 China Railway Express trains used the Alataw Pass crossing. The value of the freight the上海乌托邦

y carried was $5.2 billion, a rise of 69.6 percent year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the Alataw Pass Customs.

Every day, border security and customs officials deal with large numbers of trains and trucks lined up at checkpoints to be insp上海乌托邦上海品茶

ected, heading to or coming from countries in Europe and Central Asia. Meanwhile, crude oil is constantly pumped to China from Kazakhstan via a network of subterranean pipelines.

Since it opened in 1991, the Alataw Pass land port has been famous for strong winds almost all-year-round and for being a strategic

entry point for energy products. Now, it’s famous for the China Railway Express, and as a trade hub for a range of goods, such as imported cars, agri

cultural products and alcohol,” said Di Yongjiang, Party chief of Alashankou, a city established in 2012 based around the land port.

Wang Chuanjie, head of the Alataw Pass Customs, said: “Since May 2017, the China Railway Express has become a stable and regular service. To provide a bette

r service, we have teamed up with the border security authorities to conduct joint inspections, cutting inspection

times by 30 minutes. The customs clearance time has also been accelerated to ensure the efficiency of the tra

in service. Now, trains only need to stop at the port for six to 10 hours, from 12 hours before.”

The trilogy, which is now being shot in the coastal city of Qingdao, Shandong provi

阿拉爱上海nce, is scheduled to release its three feature-length films consecutively every year from 2020 to 2022.

Electric carmaker NIO will replace the power battery

pack with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.At least three NIO ES8 vehicles上海千花坊

had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.上海千花坊

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transde

上海千花坊partmental investigation team to optimize the quality management system of their products in cooperation with supply chain partners.

By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oc上海千花坊

t 20, 2018, have been equipped with modules of the specification model NEV-P102, which has no safety hazards, the company said.

上海千花坊senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business environ

ment, as the country is determined to develop an advanced intellectual property protection legal regime.

“上海千花坊We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, manag

ing partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.

Despite the uncertaint女神会所y caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he beli

eves “China will continue opening its economy up to international trade and cross-border inbound and outbound direct investment.”

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for

IP protectio上海千花坊女神会所n, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the int

ellectual property rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tr上海千花坊

ade dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

Fo上海千花坊女神会所r instance, Chinese companies are driven to catch up on merge and acquisiti

Beijing’s, as both the Foreign Ministry and official media are vowing, is to “fight till the end” in

that case. Such a scenario would be lose-lose, as it would mean diminishing returns for both.

Global investors are pinning their hopes on the upcoming meeting producing a breakthrough in the c

urrent impasse. The yet-to-be-confirmed report that China and the United States have reached a t

entative agreement to avert the threatened tariffs helped Asian stock markets turn higher on Thursday.

If some kind of truce cake has indeed been baked, as some assume, it certainly would be something worth celebrating.

After all, tense as they are, the trade frictions are the fus

e of a broader and more dangerous standoff that may not only pit the world’s two largest eco

nomies against each other, but also lead to the fragmentation of the global market and the international community.
