The US side has conducted a series of negative rheto

ric and actions regarding the Taiwan question, violated the one-

China principle and the three China-US joint communiques,” he said.

“This has undermined China’s sovereignty and security, sent a seriously wrong message to Taiwan secessionists, and

disrupted regional peace and stability,” Shao said, adding that China must, and will be, reunified.

“If anyone tries to separate Taiwan from the mainland, the Chinese

military will adamantly protect its territorial integrity at all costs,” he said.

As for the South China Sea, Shanahan accused China of undermining fr

“It looks like it’s going to be a big win for the Brexit

Party,” Farage told reporters in Southampton in southern E

ngland where vote tallies from across the southeast region were being collated.

“The intelligence I get is that the Brexit party is doing pretty well,” sa

id Farage, who headed one of the two Brexit campaigns in the 2016 referendum.

While May was forced to delay Brexit after agreeing a deal that the British parliament and much of her party reject

ed, the Labour Party has voiced both support for another referendum and a promise to honour the result of the 2016 vote.

The impact of such a severe election drubbing for the major parties is

unclear though potential successors to May are calling for a more decisive Brexit, while L

abour leader Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure to openly support another referendum.

Huang Jing, 25, from Jiangyin, Jiangsu province, said

 she buys cosmetics, handbags and clothing from top brands through cross-border e-commer

ce platforms every month. Sometimes, she drives for one to two hours to neighboring bigger cities, such a

s Wuxi in Jiangsu, and Shanghai for shopping. She also plans two or three overseas trips every year.

“I don’t have any housing or car loans, and don’t have to worry about daily costs, as I live with my parents. I usually spend all my sa

lary on daily consumption and entertainment, which is quite common for people such as myself,” she said.

Jason Yu, managing director of Kantar Worldpanel, said small-to

wn youths look to the internet for the latest information, products and lifest

yles. The gap between young people in lower-tier cities and those in metropolises has narrowed greatly.

“Small-town youths now have broader horizons, are well informed, and some have even started to lead ‘avant-garde’ lifestyles,” he said.

But if the stock-image platform doesn’t get authoriza

ion but still asks for compensation by resorting to litigation, I think such behavior may be an alleged fraud,” he said.

The core of the problem lies in whether stock-image providers get authorization from copyright owners, he added.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal researcher who specializes in intellectual p

roperty cases at the China University of Political Science and Law, agreed, but said copyri

ght owners and institutes given copyright authorization should respect this right and not abuse it for gain.

He said stock-image companies need to make authorization a priority in their opera

tions and pay more effort to finding a balance between commercial interest and public interest.

The litigation right that is to safeguard copyrights must not be abused, he added.

or of the China Tourism Academy. “Compared to the United States, w

here 48 percent of its citizens hold a passport, the figure in China is only around 10 perce

Since last year, countries including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Turkey, Thailand and Sri Lanka have starte

d to accept visa application documents online and issue e-visas, either a bar code or QR code.

His company also works with Universal Music Grou

up China to market vinyls for pop stars such as Jacky Cheung, Karen Mok and Faye Wong, aiming to popularize vinyls among young Chinese buyers.

Turntables are designed to appeal to a contemporary lifestyle that is simple and sustainable, Lin says.

His company opened a vinyl store, called 33-rpm, in Shenzhen on March 21

, and he has ambitious plans to have outlets in about 200 Chinese cities within the next two years.

“When you look at convenience, portability, and all those things,

vinyl doesn’t make sense,” he says. “But it is rooted in a passion or love for music. Some people

buy vinyls but they don’t necessarily listen to them. They’re collecting these things like works of art.”
