Tickets are now available for flights at Beijing Daxing In

On various travel websites, passengers can book tickets from the new

airport to many domestic destinations such as Shanghai, Xiamen in Fujian province, Gua

ngzhou in Guangdong province, Chengdu in Sichuan province and Kunming in Yunnan province. 上海419

Compared to the flights departing from Beijing Capital International Airport, which is l

Flights to Guangzhou from Daxing airport, for instance, cost less than 1,300 yuan ($

185) for economy class while the lowest price at the Capital airport is nearly 1,800 yuan.

Before the winter season starts in November, domestic flights will be carried out solely by China United Airl 上海419品茶微信

ines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Eastern, which is also the first airline to transfer its operations to Da

xing airport from its current headquarters at Beijing Nanyuan Airport, the company said. 上海419

So far, most of the booked trips will be made during the weeklong National Day holiday from Oct 1 to 7, according to the company.

The airline will operate over 130 flights daily from the new air 上海419品茶微信

port, which will serve a network of over 80 routes and 70 domestic destinations.

Over 20 international routes operated by Finn Air, British Airways, Polish A

irlines and Malaysia Airlines can also be booked, including flights to London; Helsinki; Cas 上海419

ablanca, Morocco; Fukuoka, Japan; and Kathmandu, Nepal, according to travel website Qunar.

上海419on-year to 2.72 trillion yuan, followed by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, up

11.3 percent to 2.35 trillion yuan, and the United States, down 8.1 percent to 2.1 trillion yuan.

To offset the negative impact caused by the Sino-US trade dispute, potential for trade cooperation between China and economie上海419品茶微信

s participating in the Belt and Road Initiative such as ASEAN, Russia and Italy has been further unleashed this yea

上海419r, said Chen Bin, executive vice-president of the China Machinery Industry Federation.

Chen said the trade dispute between China and the US has prompted Chinese ente

rprises to accelerate their pace of innovation to break external restrictions in many fi上海419品茶微信

elds such as semiconductors and new materials, as well as expand their global presence at a notable pace.

Yan Min, a division head at the State Information Center’s Department of Economic Forecasting, said China’s div

上海419ersified trade development — exploring new markets and generating fresh demand — has become a driving forc

e for its foreign trade expansion and created room for the country to maintain stable trade growth.

New measures to stabilize trade can help ease the burdens of Chinese exporters and enh上海419品茶微信

ance their capabilities to address external uncertainties and boost their confidence, Yan said.

上海419According to the General Administration of Customs, China’s exports increased 6.7 percent year-on-year to 9.48 trillion yuan in th

e first seven months, while imports grew 1.3 percent to 7.93 trillion yuan. Its trade s

urplus widened by 47.4 percent year-on-year to 1.55 trillion yuan during the same period.

China’s trade with BRI economies totaled 5.03 trillion yuan, up 10.2 percent year-on-year, about 6 pe上海419品茶微信

rcentage points higher than the overall pace, accounting for 28.9 percent of China’s total trade volume.

Around 4,000 university students have provided or will provide professional s

上海419品茶微信These students from Beijing and Zhangjiakou, North China’s Hebei province, do th

eir work in groups at the Beijing expo, where temperatures can easily exceed 30 C during the summer.

Volunteers have little time to spend under the umbrellas, and keep busy giving directions to visitors under the sun. Wh上海419品茶微信

“The happiest moment for me every day is to give answers to tou

For indoor volunteers who work in pavilions, walking 30,000 steps a day is not unheard of. Many have become exc

A recent Chinese TV series highlights the challenges of adapting to new culture, Zhu Dunhua reports.

Midnight. Freezing. Another country, far from home. The events of that night are sear上海419品茶微信

ed in Lucy Zhu’s memory. A fully packed suitcase straining to keep its contents from spilling. A long walk to her ca

上海419mpus amid a snowstorm in Lansing, Michigan, the United States after a 13-hour-long flight from Beijing.

Large snowflakes flutter onto her clothes as she tries to protect her face a

nd eyes from the wind that cuts like a knife. The bitter cold seems to penetrate her bones.上海419

After the airport shuttle bus dropped her at the bus station, she tried to get a cab or a lift, but to no avail. The late hour and th

上海419品茶微信e weather seemed to conspire against her. She had no option but to lug her suitcase for more than 40 minutes back to

the university dorm as the-19 C temperature seemed to taunt her for returning after Christmas break.

Zhu, who studied in Michigan State University, part of her seven years spent overseas, re上海419

calls that night and other challenges she faced. “It was one of the most unforgettable nights in my early

上海419years of studying abroad, and there have been more dilemmas, much harsher than physical cold and pain. Besides trying to a

dapt to a new environment, I also needed to learn how to live independently using a foreign language.”

Zhu’s midnight plight, and the sense of despair, have been experienced in various forms by international students. A上海419品茶微信

fter all, one of the great lessons learned by these students is how to manage outside of the campus. This challenge is

reflected in the TV series Over the Sea I Come to You, broadcast on Dragon TV and Zhejiang Satellite TV from June 13 to July 9.上海419品茶微信

largest economies have sent a strong signal across the globe that th

ey want to resolve their trade disputes, which helped stock markets worldwide to stage a r上海419

ally on Monday. The fact that both countries and the world beyond have started to feel the pinch of the trade war, to s

上海419品茶微信ome extent, helped the two sides to step down a bit in order to resolve their trade frictions.

The opposition of a large number of US high-tech companies, and consu

mers and industry organizations to the trade war could seriously impair the US ad上海419品茶微信

ministration’s ability to play the card of a booming economy, which the president relies on to be re-elected in 2020.上海419

Yet, irrespective of the Trump administration’s emphasis on defending US economic

上海419interests, the US has basically formed a strategy to portray China as a main rival that involves a fier

ce competition in core areas, strategic security, geopolitics, and science and technology. As a result, more disputes on mu上海419品茶微信

ltiple fronts could be the new normal for China-US relations even if a trade deal is eventually inked.上海419品茶微信

Bilateral trade ties that increasingly look like the only bond connecting the two countries now should be valued and mad

e the ballast for promoting Sino-US relations, instead of being made a tool to champion American interests. As Xi said, c

ooperation brings benefits for both countries while conflict incurs losses on both sides.

The views don’t necessarily represent those of China Daily.

President Xi Jinping’s meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Osaka las

t week produced a number of consensuses, with both sides agreeing to build Sino-Japanese relations by meeting the

needs of a new era so they can jointly safeguard world peace and promote common development.

The thawing of Sino-Japanese relations last year-after Premier Li Keqiang visited Japan in May and Abe visited China in Oct

ober-was partly due to the rise of unilateralism and protectionism in some parts of the world and the urgent n

eed to oppose them. And since ensuring a free and fair trade order is a shared goal of

the world’s second-and third-largest economies, they need to make greater efforts to realize that goal.

The most recent admission came Saturd

journalist” two decades ago. He called it a “mistake” that he “deeply” regrets.
In a released excerpt from a book on Gove’s life, the se

cretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs is said to have confessed, while being quiz

zed by his leadership team, to consuming cocaine.
“He was firmly instructed not to give that answer in public, and told instead to fall back

on the words (former Prime Minister David) Cameron had used when he was running for leader, namely that pol

A poll in Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper said that support for the nation’s far-right League, which is led by the dep
