However, this seems 上海品茶微信nlikely since very little

preparatory work has been done in advance of the G20 meeting between the two leaders,” Lach

 上海品茶微信man said. “The most that I am expecting from this meeting is an ag

reement to continue talking and agreeing to a schedule for future meetings.”

“If that proves to be the case, markets could be disappointed,” he said.

Douglas Paal, vice-president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Pe 上海品茶微信女神会所

ace, told Xinhua that if there is agreement to keep talking, “Wall Street should be happy.”

“But I think Trump is more invested in the talks failing and helping with the 2020 elect 上海品茶微信

 上海品茶微信女神会所The shared accommodation boom is sweeping across China, with transaction volume rising 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

nual growth rate of the shared accommodation market is expected to remain around 50 percent over the next three years.

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 上海品茶微信s will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief econom

i 上海品茶微信st at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of th

e founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP gr 上海品茶微信owth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pri

ces (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next

year to the next decade is somewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.上海品茶微信

O’Neill i 上海品茶微信s known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

“China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that aft上海品茶微信er 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the Un

ited States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China ne

上海品茶微信女神会所eds to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contr

ibutor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six ye

ars ago, will play a “hugely important” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and deliver policies, infra

structure, trade, financial and people-to-people c上海品茶微信女神会所onnectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, p

articularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added.

 March 29 exit from the EU, May’s Conservatives suffered major losses in local election

s this month and are trailing in opinion polls before May 23 European Parliament elections.

With Labour and Brexit-supporting rebels in the Conservatives p

lanning to vote against her deal, it is unlikely to be approved as things stand.

Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers were unimpressed with May’s failure to set a firm date to quit. One, who declined to be na

med, described it as “yet further procrastination which is causing appalling damage to the Conservative Party.”

Another, Andrew Bridgen, said May was “an increasingly beleaguered and isolated prim

e minister who is desperate to salvage something from her premiership and is prepared to drive thro

ugh an agreement that would fatally hamstring any future prime minister in negotiations with the EU.”
