上海品茶微信女神会所The shared accommodation boom is sweeping across China, with transaction volume r
ising 37.5 percent year-on-year to 16.5 billion yuan ($2.4 billion) in 2018, a new report said on Tuesday. The report, released by the State Information Center, shows the country’s main shared accommodation platforms offered 3.5 million housing units in nearly 500 cities last year.
Chengdu, Sichuan province topped all other cities in terms of the number of active
users, followed by Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Xi’an in Shaanxi province. 上海品茶微信女神会所 According to the report, second- and third-tier cities are accelerating the push to embrace shared accommodation services that offer short-term low-cost lodging.
Lijiang in Yunnan province, Qinhuangdao in Hebei province and Guilin in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region have seen signi 上海品茶微信女神会所
ficant jumps in the number of short-term lodging platforms’ stayed nights, rising 650, 600 and 300 percent in 2018 respectively.
The report noted an increasing number of young people prefer to start a business in platforms that offer shared accommo
dation, as 70 percent of major shared accommodation platforms hosts were born in the 1980s and 1990s.
Specifically, more females prefer to be a host on those platforms, occupying 60 percent of the total on main shared accommodation platforms.
Vacationing with pets is a new trend in the market, the report said. More than 40 percent of sh
ared accommodation users have pets, among which 66.7 percent prefer taking pets on vacation.
The report came as the nation’s sharing economy marches into a new stage, where quality matters more than expansion speed. The report said the an

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated econom
ic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊 During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所 Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a
solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral 上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? T
he answer is clearly both in theory and in practice. In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair? Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t
上海楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from
上海楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.
The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj
ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.
“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct上海楼凤品茶微信
antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.
“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we
have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”
上海楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ
ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.
House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur
sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 上海楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.
Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det
上海楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra
nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.
