Hong Kong’s role as a bridge in channeling foreign dir上海千花网

Authorities nationwide recently unveiled plans to “light up” cities after dusk. In Beijing, a series of policies were rolled

This month, Shanghai announced a list of cultural activities and tour routes, with 10

Convenience store chain Bianlifeng, which was established in Dece
mber 2016, has already benefited from 24-hour operation at all its more than 800 outlets.上海千花网
Zhou Zhou, director of the company’s daily distribution operation
s, said nighttime consumption has great potential, and all Bianlifeng outlets have
上海千花网女神会所performed well after dusk. He cited a store near the Third North Ring Road in Bei
jing, whose post-10 pm sales account for about 30 percent of those for the entire day.
“In areas such as Zhongguancun, where there are many internet enterprises, convenie上海千花网
nce stores act as late-night canteens for company employees who frequently work late,”
he said. “In some stores, the number of consumers at about midnight will account for 25上海千花网女神会所
percent of the peak in the daytime. A majority of them are born after the 1990s.”
However, Zhou said that while nighttime consumption in the bustling business district is strong, in s上海千花网

the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.
On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da上海千花网
y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.
But the demonstrations did not stop.
上海千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi
tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub
lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.
Some observers say many y上海千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b
y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.
Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government上海千花网女神会所
has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.
上海千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ
ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.
But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r上海千花网
ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.
Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p上海千花网女神会所
art of it, Hong Kong Island, was ceded to the United Kingdom after a war in 18

上海千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa
上海千花网shington Post by a group from the academic, foreign policy, military and business communities, overwhelmingly from
the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.
The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar上海千花网女神会所
ket share for Chinese companies and an increase in China’s role in world affairs…. We do not believe Beijing is an ec
nomic enemy or an existential national security threat that must be confronted in every sphere.”上海千花网
It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay
away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact－t
hat Hong Kong is part of China. Upholding the “one country, two systems” principle is the first step toward上海千花网女神会所
restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are
contributing to it, for, as the open letter mentioned earlier also says, “Efforts to isolate
China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”上海千花网
The wrong crowd cannot represent you, and you are the most unique if you avoid the crowd and turn back now.
