Domestic celebrities can enhance the viewing experience when they make ch

aracters in overseas animations sound local, but things can sometimes go wrong.上海419

At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.

Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with

上海419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.

Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an

imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an上海419

imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.

上海419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t

he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.

As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan上海419

g and actress Ma Li, who lend their voices to two of the major animal characters in the Mandarin version.

At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike

上海419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.

Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert上海419品茶微信

ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.

Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest上海419

ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.

For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati上海419品茶微信

on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.

上海419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand

arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.

“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig上海419品茶微信

inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.

But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro

versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.

conomy plowing ahead上海419ite strong headwindsChin

For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig

ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419

ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.

上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove

rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419

This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge

sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow

上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.

But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that

China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi

culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419

For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen

t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef

forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所

uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.

上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an

d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund

amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.

Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所

sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot

上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a

fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

visits Chifeng as part 上海419ion of North China

President Xi Jinping made an inspection tour to North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region on Monday.

At a local community in Songshan district of Chifeng city, Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Commi 上海419品茶微信

 上海419well as the development of national integration and unity.

Later, he visited the Chifeng Museum, where he was briefed on the evolution of loca

The Gesar epic tradition was listed as a World Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2009.

 上海419品茶微信hina’s Tiangong II space lab will spend its last days in orbit this week before making a controlled fall on

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled

to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419

Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

 上海419品茶微信bris expected to fall in a designated secure area in the South Pacific Ocean, it added.

Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

mation or inform relevant parties in a timely manner to fulfill its international obligations. 上海419

Tiangong II was put into orbit in September 2016 atop a Long March 2F carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite La

unch Center in the Gobi Desert. The space lab is 10.4 meters high, 3.35 m in diameter and weighs 8.6 metric tons.

 上海419品茶微信Two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, entered the lab that October after the

ir Shenzhou XI spacecraft docked with the lab and remained there for 30 days.

From April to September 2017, Tiangong II and Tianzhou I cargo spacecraft performed several docking and in-orbit refuel

ing operations, which demonstrated resupply and refueling technologies for a space station. 上海419

The space lab also carried out a series of scientific and technological experiments.

 上海419品茶微信Its predecessor, Tiangong I, was launched in September 2011 and was mainly used to test technologies involved in space re

ndezvous and docking. Tiangong I fell back to the Earth in April 2018 in an uncontrolled manner.

Arms sales to Taiwan 上海419 blow tootening the poten

tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department

has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419

atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl

上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.

The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419

sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.

上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.

The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a

cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419

he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.

上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f

or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信

olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o

f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419

Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t

he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信

dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2

016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信

worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr

ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he

ld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

Putin added that Russia’s losses from economic sanctions were m

“According to expert data, as a result of these restrictions, Russia lost about 50 billion US dollars since 2014, while the European Unio

India to impose retalia上海419品茶微信roductsmedia

The Indian governmen上海419品茶微信t has decided to impose retaliatory d

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co

unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.

The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead

of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def

ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.

In June last year, India announced retaliatory tariffs worth 230 million US dollars on 29 US goods. However, India h

as since been postponing implementation of the duties in a bid to address trade concerns.

The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

n India taking effect on June 5, may have prompted New Delhi to finally put the duties in place, the report said.

leave the site after midnight despite police officers’ repeated calls to leave. The protesters later att

acked police officers and blocked the roads. At least three police officers and one journalist were hurt.

The unauthorized assembly ended around 6 am, after the law enforcement action.

Meeting the media hours later, Lam noted the government would not withdraw its proposal on amending the ex

But she also promised more work would be done to enhance the bill, which would go th
