With its efficient layout, vibrant business climate and quality ser

vices, the Central Business District of Tianhe district in Guangzhou, capital

of Guangdong province, is developing into a cluster for advanced industries and a business center of southern China.

“It was not a tough decision for us to come to the CBD,” said Andy T上海夜生活

an, general manager of Zurich General Insurance Co (China) Ltd Guangdong Branch.

上海夜生活女神会所”Since all the world-class financial institutions are here, the

financial information is prompt and there is a rich pool of professional staff.”

Zurich Insurance Group, a leading Fortune Global 500 insurer, was founded in 1872 and is headqua

rtered in Zurich, Switzerland. With about 54,000 employees, it provides insurance services in over 210 countries and regions.上海夜生活

After setting up subsidiaries in Beijing and Shang

hai, Zurich chose Guangzhou as the location for its third branch in China in 2016.

上海夜生活女神会所”The local government offers almost the best services that I ever had,” he said. “The approval process, for example, is very simple.”

In 2016, the GDP of the Guangzhou Tianhe Central Business District hit 270 billio

n yuan ($40.82 billion), up 9 percent year-on-year, statistics from Tianhe district showed.上海夜生活女神会所

A total of 140 Fortune Global 500 companies have established 184 offices in the CBD of Tianhe, according to the local government.

JPMorgan Chase & Co, Allianz, Zurich Insurance, Bank of America and many other

上海夜生活institutions are there – offering advanced and professional financial

services that account for 70 percent of Guangzhou’s total financial institutions.

“It’s Zurich’s very first year in Guangdong,” he said.上海夜生活女神会所

“Thanks to the important role Guangzhou plays in the Belt and Road Initiative, Zurich has cooperate

d with many involved countries, such as Russia, Thailand, the Philippines, Iraq, Turkey and Poland. It is a favorable beginning.”

“UC has benefited from the government’s considerate services, the favorable business上海夜生活

environment and the orderly urban life of the district in its long-term development,” Huang said.

上海夜生活品茶微信He added that, thanks to the sound business environment, the well-established internet industry supply chain

and improved intellectual property protection, Tianhe plays a key role in the sustainable development of internet enterprises.

In accordance with the district’s goal, UC will focus more on content, digitalization and globalization上海夜生活品茶微信

to become an international top technological innovation enterprise, according to the company.

Wang Meng, executive of the Guangdong Investment Promotion Association, said: “Tianhe is a win

上海夜生活dow for Guangdong province. It demonstrates South China’s high economic growth and innovation levels.”

In recent years, Fortune 500 and domestic companies have swarmed into Tianhe, injectin上海夜生活品茶微信

g momentum into the district’s advanced modern services and technology innovation industries.

“The advanced modern service industry is crucial to developing advanced manufa上海夜生活

cturing and promoting the exchange of capital, technology, professionals and management,” Wang said.

She said advanced service providers, such as consultants, lawyers and accounta上海夜生活品茶微信

nts, can offer specialized knowledge to help enterprises bring forth more innovation.

上海夜生活In 2015, the Tianhe government published a three-year acti

on plan to support industrial development and technological innovation.上海夜生活品茶微信

This year, the government has revised the plan to mainly focus on the IAB industrie

s, by increasing the annual finance available for technology companies from 1 billion yuan to 2 billion yuan.

Brown was impressed by the honesty and simplicity of the Chinese people during his last 上海夜生活女神会所

trip. He remembered his wife Susan attracted a large crowd when she bought apricots on the street, because the loca

pay them more but was refused. Instead, they put some more apricots in the bag.

The generosity of Chinese people, even the poorest one they encountered, made them blush, said Brown. 上海夜生活女神会所

Brown said he would write two books based on the journey, telling foreigners and Chinese people about China’s chang

tee steady business growth. In the future, we will increase investment in AI applications in the finance and manu

facturing sector, enhance our AI technology, such as machine learning, natural language processing and deep learning, consolidate customer rela

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan

achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F

rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.

The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open

ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.

This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl

e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.

The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso

n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.

It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi

t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all

of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V

alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.

Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft

er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo

bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.

It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to

retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o

ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.

onghua districts, will house more than 60 percent of Shenzhen’s total high-tech enterprises, meeting attendees were told.

Aiming to become a world-class high-tech park, the zone will cultivate a first-class ecosystem chain for facilitating the development of innovative businesses by bui上海夜生活

lding key infrastructures, labs, test bases, innovation incubators, research institutes and service agencies.

The zone’s Nanshan park is intended to develop into the main comprehensive na

tional-level science center of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.上海夜生活女神会所

In the next few years, the Nanshan park will speed up construction of t

he Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School, SUSTech Institute of M

The park will also dismantle old factories to add 3.5 million sq meters of floor space for industrial development.

上海夜生活女神会所Shenzhen’s first united headquarters building will also be located in the N

anshan park to house 15 high-tech firms, 12 of which will be listed companies.

Luckily, Shan had reason to celebrate because he was saved by a new rule.

Right before the wedding, a specific standard was established banning high-priced betrothal gifts, or caili in上海千花坊

Chinese. Other extravagant customs, including holding grand wedding ceremonies or funeral rites as well as inviting an e

xorbitant number of guests and using lots of cars to pick up the bride and her relatives, were also prohibited.上海千花坊

The government of Feixiang district – which covers 265 villages, including Shan’s, with a population of 410,000 – found the competitio

上海千花坊n to see who could give the best betrothal gifts and hold the grandest wedding ceremonies had become a big headache for villagers.

Families of young women envied those who gave lots of money to a bride’s family and held ex

They would ask parents of their soon-to-be sons-in-law for similar treatment, Cai said.

According to the standard, no more than six cars can be used for picking up the bride and her rela

Furthermore, guests are served a simple meal – a vegetable and meat stew, or daguocai in Chinese – rather than a meal wit

Families who obey the standard may enjoy benefits such as free physical examinations for parents and

newborns at local hospitals. Pregnant women may also receive discounts for examinations during pregnancy, Cai said.

Families who do not obey the rules are required to make a self-critical s

peech during a meeting attended by villagers and local government officials. Those wh上海千花坊女神会所

Villagers fall in line

According to the Feixiang district government, more than 1,000 families of young wom

en have refrained from demanding betrothal gifts from their bridegrooms’ families since 2017. About 1

00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.

Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b

y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.

More than 1,500 enterprises and organizations are in attendance at the show, which features nearly 27,000 products and technologies. It will last until Sunday.

“This year we’ve invited delegations from over 100 countries to take part in ARMY-2019. Official meetings will be held with 70 of them on the sidelines of the forum. … The level o

Paul Johnson, director of the IFS, said cutting corporation tax, and another promise made by H上海会所品茶微信

unt to raise defense spending, would “leave no scope to relieve the pressure on other areas of pub上海会所

lic spending without tax rises, or a fiscal stance which risked putting debt on a rising path”.

Both Conservative leadership contenders announced this week they will bring down the barriers to talented overseas workers.

Johnson said he would make the UK “much more open” to high-skilled migrants such as scientists, while Hunt prom

ised to scrap the immigration target of keeping net migration below 100,000, which has never been met.

Hunt said: “We’re not going to be a country that changes from Little Britain int
