To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re

 上海品茶微信solution screens is part of the reason why premium film screenings are welcome.

“We saw strong demand in blockbusters, not only those (from) Hollywood but also Ch

inese-language films, which are increasingly welcomed by Chinese audiences.” 上海品茶微信女神会所

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv

 上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.

“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the

reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信

ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.

 上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.

Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa

id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信

s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.

“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin

ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

A rough industry estimate from entertainment analysi

 上海品茶微信s website Dengta under online ticketing platform Taopiaopiao show

s cinema visits slumped by nearly 100 million to around 807 million in the first half of this year.

“On one hand, rising ticket prices prevent many people from visiting cinema 上海品茶微信女神会所

s, as cinemas stopped selling cheap tickets at 9.9 yuan or 19.9 yuan,” Chen said.

It is a collective responsibility to support and build trust

 for a more positive environment for vaccination on and offli

According to the China CDC, the country saw no sudden spikes in measles last year, as f

ewer than 4,000 cases were recorded and only one patient died from it, compared with nearly 9 million measles cases annually at its peak in the 1950s.

Wang Huaqing, chief expert in the immunization program at the China CDC, suggested th上海品茶微信

at public health workers in China can draw lessons from the recent measles outbreaks around the globe and continue to boost national immunization coverage.

“In China, there is room to improve in terms of rounding up the domestic immunization program and further improving the vaccination rate,” Wang said.

上海品茶微信Public health experts in China have underscored their confidence in the safety and efficacy of domestic vaccines and called for concerted efforts to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases.

Gao Fu, head of the China CDC, reaffirmed that vaccines produced in China are among “the best in the world” and urged the public to maintain confidence in domestically produced vaccines.

hina plans to introduce a compensation system for people who report adverse events linked to preventive vaccinations, according to a draft law under review at the top legislature.上海品茶微信女神会所

Compensation must be provided in cases of an adverse event leading to death, serious disability or o

rgan injury during or after vaccination, or when the possibility of an adverse event cannot be excluded, the draft says.

The draft vaccine administration law was submitted Saturday to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress for the second reading.

The draft increases penalties on illegal activities, such as manufacturing and selling fake or substan上海品茶微信女神会所

dard vaccines, and stipulates a punitive compensation to those who sell or use substandard vaccines with knowledge, causin

g death or serious health consequences.
“The newly proposed law on vaccine management, currently under review by China’s

上海品茶微信女神会所top legislative body, speaks volume about the country’s determination to establish the most stringent standards and impleme

t the strongest supervision, toughest penalties and accountability in the vaccine sector,” he said.

Gao added that recent scandals involving ineffective or fake va上海品茶微信女神会所

ccines in China do not reflect the mainstream quality of domestic vaccines.

“It is imperative for the whole society to restore public confidence in vaccines and the national immunization program,” he said.

One of the purposes of China opening up its capital acco

Supply-side structural reform key to progress

China should also deepen its financial system reform and accelerate the opening up of its capital account, because only

by deepening the financial sector’s supply-side structural reform can it improve its financial services en

Responding to a question on China’s considerations behin

He added that China and the United States are in active talks on whether Wei will meet Patrick M. Sha

Wei has been in Singapore since Tuesday and has met with leaders of the Singaporea

Foreign investors believe that China has enough policy

icy tools to offset short-term downside pressure, while the financial risks are under control as the country’s debt level has shown signs of stabilizing, Zhang said.

China’s overall debt-to-GDP ratio had dropped to 249.4 percent

by the end of 2018, 1.5 percentage points lower than a year earlier, according to the PBOC.

If trade tensions escalate further, more opening-up policies in the sectors of medical

care and education will help boost global investors’ confidence in the Chinese economy, Zhang added.

By hiking the tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from 10 percent t

o 25 percent just when it seemed the China-US trade talks would achieve a bre

akthrough, the United States has not only intensified the trade dispute but also ensured both sides take a knock.

In contrast, the US seems to take it for granted that tarif

s are a weapon it can employ to bring China to its knees and extract one-sided

concessions, apparently ignorant to the fac

t that China is not what it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the country was forced into signing humil

iating treaties, which resulted in the opening of trading ports and paying of indemnities to Western powers.

Perhaps the blame for the breakdown in the talks should be laid at the door of the mind-set o

f the West, which sees only winners and losers, rather than a holistic whole in

which all benefit from each other.

That Eastern viewpoint explains why

China still hopes that the US will meet it halfway for

the benefit of both countries and both

peoples as well as the development of the world economy.

Not only are there missing links on the causality chai

 between long-term structural factors and actual economic performance, it is also unclear how long those factors would take to constrain GDP growth to a part

cular level. In fact, 20 years ago, the same long-term factors were used to warn of a possible fall in Chinese GDP growth.

Because of the complexity of China’s growth trajectory, many economists seem to base their assessments of potenti

al on performance. After every drop in China’s GDP growth since the second quarter of 2012-when growth fell be

low 8 percent-economists have emerged to declare that performance was in line with potential.

Difficult to determine potential growth rate

To be sure, there are various estimates of China’s potential growth rate, ranging from 5 perc

ent to 8 percent. But it is difficult to determine which is reliable. For one thing, there is reason to believe that

most estimates fail to discount cyclical factors adequately when calculating the long-term trend.
