High requirements for mountaineering admission is an

other professional measure that relates to safety. Anyone without experience climbing mountains above 8,000 meters, and witho

ut adequate capability for independent movement is not allowed on Mount Qomolangma,” he said.

Both overseas and domestic climbers must apply as part of a team, not personally, he said.

Tibet installed a new ladder in a section of the climbing route in 2017, and provided climb

ing ropes as long as 6,000 meters along the path between a section at 6,600 meters and the summit at 8,844 meters.

Cleanup efforts on the mountain involve both environmental considerations and climbing sa

fety. The work has become routine, said Tashi Gyatso, the deputy secretary of the regional government.

Keeping with their “Wuhan spirit” and their June 2017″A

Astana consensus” on “not allowing differences to become disputes”, their “strategic guidanc

e” to their armed forces have ensured peace on their borders. This has prompted bilateral tra

de to finally cross its decade-long volume of $70-75 billion. For this year, China-India trade is set to cross $100 billion.

Likewise, China’s investments in India have witnessed a sharp upsur

ge from $688 million in 2016 to $5.6 billion last year. The United States’ decision to raise tariffs

on Chinese, as well as Indian, products is expected n Sino-Indian trade and invest

ment partnership. Critics may describe this as China’s tactical move triggered by its intensifying trade dispute w

ith the US. Yet there is no denying that the past two years have seen a marked shift in China-India relations.

Accelerating the opening up of China’s commodity futu

ures market will help foreign investors optimize their renminbi-denominated asset portfolios as they can inc

orporate investment targets of a wider variety, said Wang Tingting, an associate pro

fessor of finance with the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.

“Moreover, as foreign investors’ trading helps boost liquidity in the domestic market and makes the price changes mor

e consistent with international trends, domestic market participants can also better hedge against risks,” he said.

Experts also expect China to open up the stock index futures market to foreign invest

ors, as they have large exposure in the A-share market and are therefore in need of this risk management tool.

To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US need

eds to introduce and use more foreign capital, which will further enlarge

the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high growth r

ate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.

What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regu

lation of the economy, the US administration has been trying to impose regulations on int

ernational trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.

Results for US may be unsatisfactory

The US administration’s more often than not conflicting goals have

resulted in the trade conflicts with China and other countries. For instance, China’s exports to t

he US grew 11.3 percent and its trade surplus with the US increased to $323 billion in 2018, up 17.3 percent year-on-year.

Pam Marsden, head of production for Sony Pictures Anim

mation, also considers characterization as a crucial element to developing successful animated works.

The studio’s 2018 smash hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won a string of awards, including the 91st Os

cars’ best animated feature, thanks to its unique look that combines computer animation and traditional hand-drawn techniques.

Speaking of developing a formula for making hit movies, Marsden says: “It begin

s with characters. If you can create a character that is beloved, charming and appealing, and touches the hearts of an audie

nce, you are well on your way to creating a successful animated movie that can cross all borders.”

If Hollywood’s experience leads it to focus primarily on the characters they create, Japanese director Hay

ato Date says he believes that voice-over dialogue is another important factor affecting the success of any animated work.

Best known for the manga-adapted animated TV series Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden, Date r

eveals that he has developed a particular method which gathers all the voice artists together to record the scenes.

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.
