Others, however, appa上海千花坊erent views. Liu

 is one of them. “If we want to build cultural confidence, and want to

make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were th上海千花坊女神会所

ose of reformists. She might reflect her own experience of pervasive prejudice and hope to change the status quo. But on th

上海千花坊e whole, most students showed great interest in and confidence over the future of traditional Chinese culture.

The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The co上海千花坊女神会所

ntest this year shows a big difference from previous ones. The contestants now are more interested in wor

ld affairs and the role China should play in the international community. They have broader perspectives and are more pa

上海千花坊女神会所ssionate in dealing with common challenges the whole universe is facing, and their views are more diversified,” Guo said.

Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of studen上海千花坊

ts’ English capability, but also an expression of students’ patriotism and global horizon. Keeping track of both wo

上海千花坊女神会所rld and Chinese affairs and maintaining an open mind without losing interest in traditional Chinese culture in th

e era of globalization are priorities in higher education, especially for liberal arts  students.

The contestants’ passion for traditional Chinese culture is the epitome of all college students’ reflection on Chinese culture上海千花坊女神会所

in China. They grew up in a prosperous and dynamic society with unlimited potential built by the older ge

上海千花坊nerations. Soon or later, they will take over their causes and reshape this great country based on their perspectives and v

alues, and their speeches can be regarded as their declaration of building a better China in the future.

The contestants were 上海会所 diverse, and expresse

ed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past

several decades. The recognition of Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic gr上海会所

oups reached a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US.

上海会所Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era and ap

pealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke上海会所品茶微信

ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.

上海会所Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western a

ttitude in China. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and di

gest their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.

上海会所品茶微信”After over 100 years of humiliation by the west, many Chinese still cannot step out of the sh

adow that Chinese culture is inferior to that of the west. This is eroding our cultural self-confidence. Now

it is time for us to speak out and tell Chinese stories both past and present to the whole world,” she said.上海会所品茶微信

“Chinese culture seeks a balance between yin and yang. We believe that only in this way could people build a harmonious wor

上海会所品茶微信ld. Chinese kung fu shares more of a reputation abroad than other Chinese cultural elements, like Beijing Opera, pa

per-cutting, painting, etc,” said Liu Biqi, a contestant who is a member of the Mongolian ethnic group.

However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.上海会所品茶微信

Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used to be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.

上海会所Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue

l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lon上海会所品茶微信

ger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age.

Sun Cong, president of the Chinese Aeronautical Establishmen

上海千花坊女神会所t under Aviation Industry Corporation of China, said at a news conference on Thursday in Sh

enyang, Liaoning province, that people should be patient and wait for good news from the project.

“You will see its latest developments in due course, in the near future,” said Sun, who上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所Sun’s comments indicated that China has never wavered in its attempts to develop and build a second series of stealth com

His remarks are likely to reassure anyone concerned about the fate of上海千花坊

FC-31 because of its virtual disappearance from public view over the past two years.

The twin-engine, radar-evading fighter jet was unveiled in October 2012 when a prototy上海千花坊女神会所

pe made its maiden flight, becoming China’s second 5th-generation fighter jet, following the J-20.

上海千花坊The FC-31 has a high survivability rate, a low radar signature, advanced electronic countermeasures, strong information gat

hering and handling capacity, outstanding situational awareness and beyond-visual-range combat capability.

In addition to air combat, it can also carry out strikes against land and sea targets, according to its designers.上海千花坊女神会所

The aircraft has a large weapons bay and can carry multiple external missiles.

According to AVIC specifications, the FC-31 has a maximum takeoff we

205 kilometers per hour. It can carry 8 tons of weapons and has a designed life span of up to 30 years.

Although she started wearing hanfu on a daily basis simply because she really liked it, Zhou began to take it more seri

上海千花坊ously when she began attracting the attention and interest of foreigners and others who share the same love for tradi

tional Chinese culture, according to a China Central Television report on hanfu last year.

The Sina Weibo star has seen both her business in Sydney and her popularity on the micro-blogging platform continue to grow.上海千花坊

Because the clothing style disappeared for about 400 years before its reemergence, several

critics and academics doubt the authenticity of modern adaptations of hanfu, claiming tha

上海千花坊上海千花坊t the followers did not do sufficient historical research before recreating the outfits. Some have even gone on to say tha

t the movement is entrenched in racism and linked to nationalist movements which could spark potential con

flict between the Han ethnic group, which makes up almost 92 percent of China’s population, and the other 55 ethnic groups.上海千花坊

However, many young people who adopt hanfu as their daily fashion choice maintain that they wear it to show appre

ciation for their heritage and to feel a connection to their roots, with no political intention or motivation involved.上海千花坊上海千花坊

Despite of the ongoing debate over hanfu, many young Chinese people, including Shi and Zhou, continue

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

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.

Besides, the two sides h上海419论坛 range of fields to de

eepen cooperation, such as the Korean Peninsula denuclearization p

h sector, which can serve as an important foundation for the continuous improvement of bilateral ties.

上海419论坛During Li’s visit to Japan, the two sides signed 10 documents in areas such as cultural exchanges, medical care and public health, service trade, third-party ma

rket cooperation and building sea and air communication mechanisms, some of which have already yielded results.上海419论坛女神会所

And when Abe visited China, 12 cooperation documents-two agreements and 10 memorandums of unders

上海419论坛tanding-and 52 documents on the Belt and Road Initiative were signed between the two governments, and companies and org

anizations from either side. These documents and cooperation projects on infrastructure facilities, logistics, info

rmation technology and finance have laid the basis for upgrading China-Japan relations in the new era.上海419论坛女神会所

However, to develop Sino-Japanese relations in a way that meet the req

上海419论坛女神会所uirements of the new era, some principles and guidelines have to be followed.

Politically, the two sides should abide by the principles enshrined in the four political document

s inked by the two governments, and ensure the two sides are cooperation partners, not a threat to ea上海419论坛

ch other. Exchanges and coordination at all levels, particularly those between the leaders, should be strengthened to d上海419论坛女神会所

eepen mutual trust and help Sino-Japanese ties to evolve on a friendly and cooperative track.

On the economic front, the two sides should deepen cooperatio

n in investment, third-party markets, technology and innovation so as to boost mut

ual economic growth and promote regional economic integration, including accelerating the regional economic coop

eration negotiation process, encouraging enterprises to increase investments in each other’s country and bui

上海千花坊Kong Qingwei, chairman of China Pacific Insurance (Group) Co Ltd, said t

he Yangtze River Delta region is a key driver of the group’s annual income and inno

vative development. Of the insurer’s 126 million customers in China, 30 million live in the region, and account for 80

billion yuan, or 25 percent, of the insurer’s 320 billion yuan in total premiums.上海千花坊品茶微信

As Kong understands, there are plenty of opportunities for insurance companies in the integr

ated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, with transportation as a top priority.上海千花坊

“Insurance capital can help the government to boost domestic consumption. A com

prehensive transportation network connecting railway, subway, ports and even airports ha

上海千花坊品茶微信s been a longstanding goal of many cities in this area. This is where insurers can play a big role,” he said.

Elderly care is another sector where insurance companies can find big opportunities, said Ko

ng. In early June, CPIC opened an elderly care community in Hangzhou, and is about to launch a new one in Nanjing.

“The idea is to let the senior citizens in Shanghai enjoy quality elderly

care services in other parts of the Yangtze River Delta region. More room in Sha上海千花坊品茶微信

nghai can thus be given to ambitious young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses,” he said.

The integration of risk prevention schemes for peasants in the Ya

ngtze River Delta region is one more area where insurers can focus on, said Kong.上海千花坊品茶微信

Peasants’ income can be largely increased via products such

as cost insurance, yield insurance, income insurance or one-stop insurance service.

上海千花坊品茶微信He Haifeng, director of the Institute of Financial Policy, which is a part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the

integrated development of the delta region presents many latent challenges. So, more efforts should be made to ref

orm finance and tax areas, to reduce fees in various fields, and improve the overall business environment.

Reality show ensures rock bands get their just recognition.

The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the a上海419论坛女神会所

dulation of screaming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock ba

nds that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed.

上海419论坛However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the than

ks for that can go to a reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their song上海419论坛女神会所

s and techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛

the golden days of Chinese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established Beiji

ng-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head from Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiu

lian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bassist Ou Ya

ng and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The song

was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.
