inning customers’ 上海419论坛 and mindsat a He

Brands are working to establish emotional connections with shoppers amid rise in experience-driven consumption

Nearly everything you encounter in life has a story to tell: be it a上海419论坛品茶微信

flight ticket, a used wallet, or even the person sitting next to you in a theater.

上海419论坛The same is true of the food and beverages that people consume.

Business owners in China are waking up to the fact that as disposable incomes rise, widely use

d terms such as “freshly made” or “locally sourced” are no longer enough to appeal to the palates of a yo上海419论坛

unger generation of diners, who are increasingly drawn to personalized products.

It therefore comes as no surprise that brands are deciding to become storytellers-setting th

e scene and fleshing out a plot from product invention and storefront design to social marketing ca上海419论坛

mpaigns-all in a bid to trigger an emotional investment that resonates with customers.

So when Heytea, a milk tea brand known for its rich cheese-foam topping, introduced its fi

上海419论坛品茶微信rst Heytea Lab in Shanghai’s glitzy Grand Gateway 66 mall in June, the idea was to create a multisenso

ry drinking and culinary experience through a string of experimental installments.

Heytea has reinvented the retail concept by introducing novel menus that are updated on a weekly basis. Apart from t上海419论坛

he regular portfolio, the newly opened Shanghai flagship store allows customers to mix cocktails with their tea drinks.

It has taken inspiration from the local culture, selling ice crea上海419论坛品茶微信

ms featuring flavors like Shikumen Shanghai Rice Wine, a local liquor brand.

Neo Nie, founder and CEO of Heytea, said he sees Heytea not上海419论坛

only as a cheese-topped tea store, but a cool brand that has multiple possibilities.

The seven-year-old brand, which originated in Guangdong province, now has m上海419论坛品茶微信

ore than 250 stores nationwide and Nie is looking to expand to 400 by the end of this year.

“I used to be very frus上海419论坛ed when traveling by air

since I need to spend over 1.5 hours on the subway to get to the Capital airport. But once the Daxing airpo

rt is in operation, it will be cut to 40 minutes,” he said.上海419论坛

“I have bought tickets to my hometown Guangzhou from the new airport for the National Day holi

day, and I’m thrilled to explore the cutting-edge technologies and the interesting design of the terminal,” he added.上海419论坛女神会所

The new airport, constructed to meet China’s surging air service demand and take the pr

essure off Beijing Capital International Airport, will serve as the second international airport for Beijing.

上海419论坛With four runways, 268 parking bays and a vast terminal building covering 700,000

square meters, the new airport is expected to handle 45 million passengers a year by 2021 and 72 million by 2025.

Didi Chuxing, China’s ride-hailing giant, plans to lower its minimum passenger age restricti上海419论坛女神会所

on for teens traveling without a supervising adult from 18 to 16, the company announced Wednesday.

The new adjustment comes months after Didi said in October that children under 18 were not上海419论坛

allowed to use the car-hailing service alone, which later generated heated discussion online.

Some people hold that for users aged between 16 to 18 who have left h上海419论坛

ome for work or study, the age regulation just shut them out of the service that gave

them no alternatives but to turn to illegal cab services, or black cars, the company said.上海419论坛女神会所

“It was never our intention to push some independent minors toward the more dangerou

s gray areas just because our policy requires all minors to take cars with their parents,” the company said.上海419论坛

According to an online poll initiated by Didi in February to seek public opinion on

whether minors can ride Didi alone, over half percent of the participants suppor上海419论坛女神会所

ted children below 18 years old being able to hail a ride without an adult accompanying them.

In another poll, the percentage of support group increased to 80% with the minimum age restriction was changed to 16.

Fortunately, the leading上海419论坛up on employment has

e tools to ease the pressure on the job market. As the largest group of jo

上海419论坛女神会所b seekers, college graduates have an entire year to find jobs. In addition, college gra

duates have several options to seek employment immediately or in the near future-for instance, they can start their ow

n business or choose to pursue further studies. Plus, statistics show that more than 90 percent of college graduates find a上海419论坛女神会所

job within six months of leaving college, sometimes by accepting salaries lower than their expectations.

As for migrant workers, they have always been flexible in the job ma上海419论坛

rket. Due to the ever-improving employment information channel and rising demand for

workers in the service industry, the actual demand for migrant workers has been continuously rising in recent years.

上海419论坛女神会所The government, on its part, should improve its economic efficiency, overcome

uncertainties and take measures to fulfill enterprises’ requirements to ensure sustained eco

上海419论坛nomic growth, which in turn would further increase the demand for labor. The government should also accelerate re

form and opening-up, and implement targeted macroeconomic policies to minimize ec

onomic fluctuations and narrow the gap between job seekers’ expectations and the real condition in the market.上海419论坛女神会所

Take college graduates for example. The majority of them expect to get

a salary higher than the existing market rate-and many of them prefer to work in China’s

上海419论坛eastern region, first-tier cities and/or large enterprises. This indicates there is a gap between college graduates’ expect

ations and the actual situation in the job market. Besides, many college graduates’ knowledge and practical skills can

not fulfill the requirements of the market, especially those of big companies.上海419论坛女神会所

So the authorities should moderately loosen macroeconomic policy to create more jo

bs, strengthen social security and improve information sharing to cultivate more talents.上海419论坛女神会所

Constitutional revision 上海419论坛for Abeime Minister S

The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli

 上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.

Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛

issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh

 上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also

prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛

And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be

come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛

But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca

 上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma

jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref

erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛

Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition

 上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.

Differences among political parties, even within o

ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛

For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev

ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信

n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.

 上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J

apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.

Worse, the two countri上海419论坛ves could abort the internat

ational disarmament process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could develop new intermediate-a

上海419论坛品茶微信nd short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now de上海419论坛

ploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuelli

上海419论坛品茶微信ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt majo

r powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.

What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to d上海419论坛

rag China into the discussions on certain international issues regardless of whet

her it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving inte

上海419论坛rnational relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and ther

efore remains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the

US’ unilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.上海419论坛

Of course, China is ready to participate in international cooperation and help maintain w

上海419论坛品茶微信orld peace and development, but only on the principle that all participating countries be made respo

nsible stakeholders. Any bilateral or multilateral agreements will be meaningless if the participating sides vio

late international rules and withdraw from them unilaterally to serve their own narrow interests.上海419论坛

unk rock band, has captivated the audience with their

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the show. “Witne

上海419论坛ssing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwrite

r Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers‘ Stadium. At the上海419论坛

packed venue, the then 25-year-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My N

ame, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing tog上海419论坛

ether He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

上海419论坛上海品茶
the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young bands

,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different musi上海419论坛上海品茶

c styles. They come together and contribute to the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribu上海419论坛上海品茶

te both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie bands emerged in the country while developing their own unique styles. The pu

nk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also usher上海419论坛上海品茶

ed in a golden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Inste

ad, we were hungry for rock music and found any possible way to get the latest music from We

stern bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perform onstage because the audiences were

smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”

Chen Hongbin, asso上海419论坛品茶微信e Shanghai

 Institutes for In上海419论坛品茶微信ternational Studies, said the Xi-Trump meeting will undoubtedly be in the spotlight during the G20 Summit.

Chen said that long-lasting trade friction has led to downside risk for the Chinese economy, and a negative impact also looms over the US economy.

The International Monetary Fund warned earlier this month that US-China tariffs tha

t have been implemented or proposed could cut global economic output by 0.5 percent, or $455 billion, in 2020.

The Xi-Trump meeting will help ease tensions between Beijing and Washington in trade disputes, Zhou said. “You can

‘t expect the meeting to resolve the trade issue, but it will inject impetus into trade talks,” he added.

Stephen Roach, a faculty member at Yale University and a former chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, said in the Preview Policy

Report for the G20 Osaka Summit that resolution is possible, but it won’t be easy in the current climate.
