US toy prices may rise d上海后花园e to additional tariff

Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit

上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on

an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所

pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.

上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.

“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custo上海后花园

mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the

上海后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi

na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园

iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.

上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix

and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.

“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s un上海后花园

certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.

上海后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede

d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.

aunch of the Discovery 上海乌托邦e Week event on July

In order to maximize the display of Gaia and the “moon persp

ective”, a 200-meter stretch of Yuanmingyuan Road was decorated like the surface of the m上海乌托邦

oon. Covering an area of around 1,000 square meters, it also features a number of exhibition spaces.

“We have long been conveying the spirit of mankind’s constant desire for exploration. We now hope to let people experi上海乌托邦品茶微信

ence it offline, so that they can appreciate the advances in human technology,” says Tony Qiu, general manag

er of Discovery Group for China and South Korea. “We are offering audiences the chance to re-imagine the future.”

When visitors enter the “Discovery station”, they first have to go through an artistic recreation of the u上海乌托邦

niverse before they arrive at the “moon walk” area-a simulated lunar environment featuring a rover and astronauts.

The “first step” area simulates the landing environment for the lunar spacecra上海乌托邦品茶微信

ft, where visitors have the chance to leave their own footprint on the surface of the moon.

An “information station” presents documentaries about space to help evoke the spirit上海乌托邦

of exploration. Finally, at the “best observation point”, the audience can look up and see Gaia.

Several space-themed Discovery films pay tribute to NASA’s 60th anniversary and the moon la上海乌托邦品茶微信

ndings. Above And Beyond: Nasa’s Journey To Tomorrow, and Apollo: The Forgotten Films and the po

pular series How The Universe Works were produced to mark this year’s anniversary.

上海乌托邦Simon Robinson, global chief financial officer and president of Asia Pacific, Discove

ry Group, says Chinese people have been fascinated with the moon since ancient times.

“We are presenting people with the opportunity to experience things, rather than j上海乌托邦品茶微信

ust watch them on television,” he says. Discovery hopes to develop more location-based

entertainment projects in China, Robinson adds, following the success of the Discovery Adventures Mogansha

n Park, a theme park for outdoor exploration, which opened in Zhejiang province in 2016.

Xinjiang Uygur sees big in上海419flux of visitorsmelons at

The Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region experienced a travel boom

上海419from January to June, and the growth is projected to co

ntinue through the rest of 2019, according to a recent report by the region’s government.

The report said that in the first half of 2019, the region received abou上海419

t 76 million visits, up 46 per-cent year-on-year. Revenue generated by tourism exc

上海419品茶微信eeded 115 billion yuan ($16 billion), registering an increase of about 48 percent over the same period last year.

Urumqi, Ili Kazak autonomous prefecture and Changji Hui autonomous pre

fecture were the three hottest destinations for travelers in the past half year. Yea

-on-year, Urumqi saw a 56 percent increase in travelers, Ili Kazak saw 81 per-cent, and Changji Hui 46 percent.上海419

Domestic travelers accounted for 98 percent of those visiting the region, w

hile the top three sources of overseas visitors were Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.

上海419品茶微信According to the report, tourism will maintain high-speed growth of 40 percent in the next half year thanks to sta

ble public security, enhanced infrastructure construction and flourishing winter tourism.上海419

Zhang Xiaoyu, general secretary of the Xinjiang Tourism Association, said that winter use

d to be the slack season for Xinjiang because of the rather low temperatures and heavy snow.

上海419品茶微信”Numerous scenic spots were shut down when winter came, but they grew

to be new attractions to travelers thanks to the popularity of winter tourism,” he said.

In February, 351 attractions were available to travelers, much上海419

more than the 69 that opened around that time last year, according to the report.

上海419品茶微信Scenic spots also saw an increase in travelers during the winter. Zha

ng said that the region offers diversified entertainment to travelers during the season.

In addition to Beijing, 上海会所nghai, Shenzhen, Guan

Big enterprises normally have business layout throughout the count

上海会所ry and even around the world, but most of the positions are based in their hea

dquarters. In the scramble for talents among cities, they have made great contributions, the report said.

In addition, the growing demand and preference for talents in cutting-edge technologies and basic research fields also上海会所

reflect the transformation and upgrading of a city, the report added.he stock index and shares price are displa

yed during the listing ceremony of the first batch of companies on the SSE STAR Market in Shanghai,

All 25 stocks listed on China’s science-technology innovation board, or the STAR Market, in上海会所品茶微信

creased in most trading days, with average cumulative gains of 217.02 percent during the past two w

eeks, said Peng Hai, an analyst of Lianxun Securities in a Tuesday report by The Paper.上海会所

Peng said the overall stock surge was higher than market expectat

ions, reflecting market recognition with capital market reforms and stimulated vitality.

上海会所品茶微信Shares of 25 companies all experienced over a 100 percent jump compared

with their listing prices since the STAR Market debut, according to financial information pr

ovider Wind Info. Beijing Worldia Diamond Tools Co Ltd saw the highest price increase of 433.73 percent, while t上海会所

he Beijing-based China Railway Signal and Communication Corp Ltd had the smallest gains of 114.7 percent.

The most direct reason behind the continuous rise on the STAR上海会所品茶微信

Market was the chase for new stocks by investors, which would bring a relatively large a

mount of capital, just like when ChiNext, China’s NASDAQ-style board of growth en上海会所

terprises, launched, according to Liu Xiaodan, chairwoman of Huatai United Securities, during an interview with CCTV Finance.

上海会所品茶微信Another reason was the contradiction between supply

and demand, Liu added. Since there were only 25 stocks on the STAR M

arket, most of which were locked and cannot be traded, a small number of funds can lead to market fluctuation.

The blacklisting will be上海419ed by the administrat

 and valid for three years, it added.Wang Sixin, a professor of internet law at Communication University of China, said

上海419the regulation shows the country’s efforts and determination to clean up cyberspace.

Wang said he regarded the regulation as an “upgraded version” of rules previously made by the adm上海419品茶微信

inistration, adding that the blacklist is urgently needed and necessary to improving the online environment.

上海419″In the past, the administration often launched campaigns agains

t online violations and named violators, but some website operators and service suppliers d

idn’t take it seriously, because the administrative punishments were not strong enough to affect their businesses,” he said.上海419品茶微信

“But the situation, I believe, will change, if the blacklist regulation, a bigger threat, takes effect.”

Zhu Wei, an associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law, applauded the regulation

上海419seeing it as a new step by the administration to manage cyberspace by rule of law and ensure honesty online.

“I’m glad that the current version identifies those who disregard business morality as ‘d

上海419品茶微信ishonest’, because attacks – such as posting untrue information between two internet businesses for c

ompetitive reasons – are often seen and not good for the business environment,” he added.

Wang said the blacklist is reasonable.

“When enterprises realize they could miss opportunities and lose out on developments上海419

in the next three years of this internet era, they will strictly abide by rules and regulate their operations,” he said.

上海419品茶微信Efforts to build an honest cyberspace have expanded in recent years. In December 2018, for instance, e-co

mmerce businesses were encouraged to make use of technologies that prevent dishonest behavior and improve overall online credibility.

China’s online platforms that offer a multitude of services are expected to con上海419

tinue robust growth as the government has pledged more facilitating measures.

At the latest executive meeting of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, a

uthorities vowed another raft of measures to beef up the growth of the sector.上海419品茶微信
