commerce giant pump primes Juhuasuan to cash in on abundant opportunities

Times are changing fast at e-commerce behemoth Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. While st压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

ore-openings from a range of global brands like Burberry to Ferragamo were

压博娱乐登入开户夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.

Against flattened economic growth and brutally aggressive competition, Alibaba is no

w giving unprecedented priority to Juhuasuan, its group-buying and flash-sale platfor压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

m, repositioning it as the top destination for consumers from smaller cities and townships.

压博娱乐登入开户夜生活The internet giant said recently that it will host a Super Bargain Day from Sept 1, halving prices for 1 million me

rchandise and giving out cash dividends, coupons and other perks. Unlike the

more reputable Nov 11 annual sales event, the 10-day event is targeted at good-quality budget items.压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

“We see massive growth in lower-tier cities this year via the Juhuasuan platform. This is the

压博娱乐登入开户夜生活engine fueling future growth and a bluesea market-meaning opportunities abound for each and e

very industry player to take a share,” said Liu Bo, general manager of Juhuasuan.

Media publications and industry analysts often categorize C压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

hinese cities into tiers, defining them based on population, gross domestic prod

压博娱乐登入开户夜生活uct and other criteria. Tier-one cities normally refer to super metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai.

Alibaba’s strategy to penetrate into lower-tier markets has reaped some early gains. In the

quarter ending June 30, over 70 percent of increased annual active consumers came from less dev压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

eloped markets. The company attributed the achievement to initiatives to cater to a b

roader user base, such as “using simpler interfaces for first-time or less-frequent users”.压博娱乐登入开户夜生活

Realizing the potential, Juhuasuan has announced a slew of plans to rev up services. On the

supply side, the platform aims to help manufacturers digitize their factories through consumer ana压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

lytics and the internet of things technology. Liu said he hopes such efforts will foster

brands, create 1 million sought-after items and nurture 10,000 digital plants.

In response to a lawsuit against its “no outside food and beverage” policy, Sha

nghai Disneyland said on Monday that the rule is “consistent with many other th压博娱乐登入开户夜生活

eme parks across China” and “guests are welcome to enjoy their own food and beverages outside the park”.

The suit was brought by a law school student in Shanghai after she was tol压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

d by park security to either throw away the snacks she had brought in her backpack or

finish them. In order to get into the park, she discarded the snacks, which were wort

The student, surnamed Wang, a junior from East China Univ压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

January and brought the case to the People’s Court of Pudong New Area, where the theme park is located.

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

压博娱乐登入开户夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.压博娱乐登入开户夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

end – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.

The huge domestic consumer market in China will dige

est most of the unsalable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will continu

e to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitutes, but US consumers will need to pay more, Guo said.

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs have

been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, and

rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the Chin

ese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.

Facebook to target vaccine misinformation with focus on

  Facebook, the world’s largest social media site, will soon take aim against anti-vaxe

rs. The company will start by lowering the ranking of groups and pages that spread misinformation about vacc

inations in its News Feed and Search options, a representative said Wednesday.

  ”These Groups and Pages will not be included in recommendations or in predictions when you type into Search,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s vice pres

ident of global policy management, said in a statement. She added that when ads that include misinformation about va

ccinations are found, “we will reject them.” Ad accounts that continue to violate company policies may even be disabled.

  Facebook won’t be disabling personal accounts that post misinformation about vaccines, a spokeswoman told CNN on backgrou

nd. General misinformation doesn’t violate the company’s community standards. If something blatantly violates th

e standards, it will be removed, but that will not happen to individual posts containing misinformation.

  Bickert said the company is also “exploring ways to share educational informa

tion about vaccines,” possibly by adding educational information to inaccurate posts.
