Companies are also introducing low-price options to

 attract the young consumer group. In late May, Qunar teamed up with 33 domestic and foreign carriers, including Air China, Chi

na Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, United Airlines and All Nippon Airways, to l

aunch discounted prices for students on more than 3,000 routes, along with the concept of student flight tickets.

Students who have registered successfully with their identific

tion documents on the platform will be able to book cheaper tickets. For instance, a one-way

flight ticket from Guangzhou to Beijing can be as cheap as 460 yuan ($66.7), which is about half of the price tag – 8

62 yuan – for a second-class seat on a high-speed train. Qunar said such low-price flight tickets compared with high-spee

d trains may change the travel habits of college students and create user stickiness.

The child was found to be infected with an intestinal virus and died after treatment lasting more than a week.

Many newborns were transferred to other hospitals after becoming infected, he said.

The health commission said the case resulted from Shunde Hospita

l’s lax management, inadequate infection control regulations and enforcement, inade

quate infection monitoring in the infant ward and failure to report infections as required.

Lan Fei, marketing center director for Guangzhou Wei

meizi Industrial Co in Guangdong province, said people in lower-tier cities have huge consumption power.

In 2016, the company’s oral care brand Saky reached customers in lower-tier cities for the first time. Mor

eover, the quality of oral care products in this market varies, so there is huge potential.

In addition to traditional sales channels such as supermarkets and stores, Saky was introduced to co

nsumers in lower-tier cities by livestreaming hosts on social media platforms. The hosts used en

tertaining methods to introduce oral care products and educate consumers about the correct way to use them.

“On Kuaishou, the host placed some sesame powder on a piece of c

orn, showing that Saky’s electric toothbrush could easily wash it away,” he said. “The host

also held a Saky electric toothbrush against a balloon (which did not burst) to demonstrate that its power could not damage teeth.”

communicate with the foreigners to help them improve their ability to speak Chinese, he said.

For Chea, the student from Cambodia, studying at the institute has been difficult since the beginning.

“I majored in telecommunications in my university, so I knew nothing about spacecraft. For me, all the courses here ar

“Now I can understand much of the content in our courses,” Chea said.
