上海会所品茶微信Dressed in a long-sleeved chiffon top and an orange pleated skirt, bilibili vlogger Shi Shanyi flourished

her round fan as she faced the camera and told viewers about the beautiful hanfu, the traditional clothing of the Han ethnic group.上海会所

Unlike other people who wear traditional ethnic clothing on special occasions, however, Shi encourages viewers to don hanfu on a daily basis.

In some videos on her bilibili account-called maobuxiaojiejie (or Miss Catwalk in Englis上海会所

h)-Shi asks viewers to boldly wear hanfu if they really like the traditional outfit.

To demonstrate that hanfu can be worn on most occasions with modern sensibility, Shi and

上海会所品茶微信her friends were filmed walking through a garden, a subway station and a shopping mall in their hanfu.

Shi, along with many other young Chinese people at home and abroad, is part of the hanfumovement, in which followe

rs seek to revitalize traditional Chinese clothing, particularly that worn by the Han ethnic group.上海会所

The movement is believed to have started about 16 years ago w

hen Wang Letian, a native of Zhengzhou, Henan province, wore hanfu in public.

上海会所品茶微信Since then, the number of people adopting the ancient style of dress in modern times has grown significantly.

Though there are no official numbers showing the recent surge, one can see people wear

ing hanfu on the street in everyday life. Clubs dedicated to hanfu appreciation are being set up at man上海会所品茶微信

y universities across China, providing plenty of evidence of its popularity among young people.

So serious is this style of dress to some that they have started run

ning businesses centered on promoting hanfu and Chinese culture appreciation.

Among them is 25-year-old Sichuan province native Zhuo Tongzhou.

After graduating with a master’s degree in management from Austr

The rural rejuvenation strategy, released last year, aims to reduce

the gap between rural and urban areas and modernize China’s agriculture and rural areas by 2035.

上海会所品茶微信Yu Fawen, a researcher in rural development at the Chinese Academy of Social Scienc

es, said with rapid urbanization many rural areas in China are facing increased risks of en

vironmental pollution, which should be addressed while carrying out the rural rejuvenation strategy.

Rural areas face many challenges – lack of investment, inadequate infrastructure and insuffi上海会所品茶微信

cient governance in rural areas – in ensuring environmental protection while developing industries, he said.

“The government needs to increase investment in improving infrastructure in rural areas, and more efforts are need上海会所品茶微信

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the

 Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six years ago, will play a “hugely i

mportant” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

 上海会所品茶微信The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and de

liver policies, infrastructure, trade, financial and people-to-people connectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, particularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added. 上海会所

O’Neill is known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

 上海会所品茶微信”China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that after 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the United States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China needs to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contributor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

These parties tend to look at trade agreements purely from

m a nationalist point of view and if a trade agreement is seen as overall beneficial for their co

untry, they could support it. For instance, Italy voted in favor of the EU agreement with Japan but again

st the agreement with Canada. The content of the agreement is key. For instance, these parties do not like clauses tha

t curtail the powers of single EU member states, such as the establishment of new regulatory or arbitration bodies.

Another uncertainty is Brexit. Whether it will happen or not? And what might change under

a new British prime minister? The new Brexit Party under Nigel Farage was the clear leader in the EP

election in the United Kingdom, but the UK’s 73 EP members have to leave the EP as soon as Brexit takes place.
