There are so many people hoping to buy the toys. It depends on luck,” says Kan.
Kan came to the event along with four friends, who are all big fans of designer toys. One of thyabo88狗亚app夜网女神会所

yabo88狗亚app夜网”It’s a great way to socialize with people,” says Wang, 36. “We
share information about designer toys and what we bought on social media.”
When I look at those cute little toys after work, I feel relaxedyabo88狗亚app夜网
and warm,” says Wang. “For me, those toys are like affordable art pieces.”
Kan and Wang are typical of the growing number of Chinese toy-collecting enthu
siasts who have emerged in the past few years as the designer toy craze has taken off.yabo88狗亚app夜网女神会所
They enjoy buying and collecting toys made from plastic or vinyl
produced by designers or artists. These toys are often associated with different themes, such as anim
als, amusement parks and zodiac signs. The styles of the toys can be cute, funny or even quirky.yabo88狗亚app夜网
It all started with Pop Mart, a Beijing-based company that introduced designer toy show
s to the Chinese mainland, and the organizer of the Beijing show as well as one in Shanghai. Three years ago, it sigyabo88狗亚app夜网女神会所
ned a contract with Hong Kong illustrator and designer Kenny Wong, who designed Molly, a wide-eyed girl.
About 4 million finger-sized Molly dolls in different series or situations, such as Schoyabo88狗亚app夜网
ol Life and Ocean, were sold on the mainland in 2018, each for 59 yuan, one of the best-selling art toys in China.
The idea for Molly came from Wong’s experience in drawing portraits of child
yabo88狗亚app夜网女神会所ren at a charity event. To keep the kids still for his portraits, he asked them to sit down w
hile he painted. All the children were pouting as they followed the instruction not to move.
The president has been advancing a new type of diplomacy with personal letters, initiatives
Editor’s note:?Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy is the fundamental guideline for China’s diployabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
matic work in the new era. China Daily is publishing a series of stories to examine how Xi’s proposals have b
yabo88狗亚app419ecome internationally accepted and made great contributions to world peace and human progress.
At the start of the new semester in August, 105 students at Niles North High School in Skokie, Illinois, had chosen to learn Chinese as a world language.
Four months ago, a group of over 40 students from this school received a letter inyabo88狗亚app419
reply from President Xi Jinping encouraging them to make greater progress in studying Chinese.
Tedd Bowen, director of world languages at Niles Township High School District 219, said C
yabo88狗亚app419hinese classes began in 2008 following requests from parents and a student interest survey.
“American public schools are increasingly aware of th
e economic, political and strategic needs for learning Mandarin Chinese,” he said in an email.yabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
Recalling the letter exchange with China’s leader, Bowen said he was most impres
sed that the students received a personalized response. “We are honored to receive it,” he said.yabo88狗亚app419
When the students in their first year of studying Chinese began practicing asking qu
estions and writing, their teacher had them write a letter to Xi as practice, Bowen said.
The teacher “wayabo88狗亚app419品茶微信s pleased with how well they did, so the students voted on the letter they wanted to send”, he said.
In the letter, the students said that they love the Chinese language and character
s, as well as music and Chinese food, and that they would love to have the chance to visit China.
yabo88狗亚app419The letter was sent to the Chinese consulate in Chicago and then sent on to Beijing.
In his reply, Xi welcomed the students to visit China and said he hopes that they will ma
ke contributions to promoting friendship between the Chinese and American peoples.yabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
It was not the first time this year that Xi has replied to letters to foreign stu
dents who are studying Chinese and praised their enthusiasm for Chinese culture.

A new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation is developing with strong mo

ing influence on economic development, social progress and global governance, Xi said.

ward-looking, in-depth integration of the digital economy and the real economy.yabo88狗亚app419
The annual Smart China Expo, begun last year, aims to showcase new products, technologies, business formats and mod

This year’s expo attracted over 1,800 participants and 843 companies from 28 countries a

business leaders and tech giants including Intel, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba and Xiaomi.
“Smart technology is developing very fast in China,” Vice-Premier Liu He said at the opening ceremony.yabo88狗亚app419
“It has become a new, important economic growth point, with preliminary statistics showing that the total industrial sc

China won’t give in to extreme pressure by the United States on tariffs and will firml
y defend its core interests, as it has sufficient countermeasures available, experts said.yabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
The reaction came after the Ministry of Commerce expressed strong opposition on Saturday
yabo88狗亚app419to a new threat of additional tariffs by the US on about $550 billion worth of Chinese imports. The ministry urge
d Washington to reverse course immediately or be prepared to “bear all the consequences”.
The fresh retaliatory threat by the US violates the consensus reached between the countyabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
ries’ top leaders and severely undermines the multilateral trading system and normal international trade o
rder, the ministry said, adding that Washington will eat the bitter fruit of its own actions.
yabo88狗亚app419Gu Xueming, head of the ministry’s Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said none of the ex
treme pressure tactics and intimidation by the US will work with China, which will unswervingly protect itself.
In the future, the country’s countermeasures will be more rational, firmer and more powerful, Gu said at a seminar in Beijing on Sunday.yabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
Noting that cooperation is the only correct choice, Gu said he hoped the US will see the situation clearly, give up its illu
sions and resolve its differences with China under the principle of muyabo88狗亚app419
tual benefit and respect. Any agreement must be acceptable to both sides, Gu said.
Bai Ming, a senior researcher at the acad
yabo88狗亚app419emy, said China has sufficient tools in its toolbox to use to counter the US adm
inistration’s unilateral tariff actions. The “quality” of the tools matters most, he said.
On Friday, the US administration said it will hike duties on $250 billion worth of Chineseyabo88狗亚app419
goods from the current 25 percent to 30 percent beginning on Oct 1, and the re
maining imports of $300 billion from the previously planned 10 percent to 15 percent on Sept 1.
The move followed Beijing’s plan on Thursday to raiseyabo88狗亚app419品茶微信
tariffs on $75 billion worth of US goods in a response to the US side’s planned levies on a
n additional $300 billion worth of Chinese imports, announced earlier this month.

Huawei Technologies Co said Friday that it would consider using RISC-V, an open-source chip architecture, if the US gove

Xu Zhijun, rotating chairman of Huawei, said in an interview in Shenzhen, Guangdong?yabo88狗亚app419论坛女神会所

Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem
A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t
yabo88狗亚app楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.
It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.
The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into theyabo88狗亚app楼凤
wild and the releasing of animals that may interfere with residents’ normal lives and harm the ecosystem.
The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat
yabo88狗亚app楼凤女神会所urally found in Heilongjiang or come from outside the northeastern province or overseas.
Organizers and participants in tourism, animal viewing, photography and video activities
should not interfere with the growth and reproduction of wild animals or destroy the habitats of wild animals.yabo88狗亚app楼凤
Those violating the rules could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,420).
Wildlife expert Zhang Wei, a professor at Northeast Forestry University, in Harbin, the provincial capital, said the current regulat
ion, in force since 1996, was unable to meet the practical demands of wildlife protection. The new version, folyabo88狗亚app楼凤女神会所
lowing the basic principles of the Law on Protection of Wildlife, was significant and necessary.
