ung Chinese consumers 上海419论坛 passion for cocktail bar

The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc

上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit

ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe

ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.

A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信

l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.

Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛

e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me

tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.

上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua

lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit

beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛

US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.

上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready

to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count

ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛

“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.

He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr

essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信

owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.

Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w

hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信

hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

Japan to resume comme上海419论坛nting amid criticism

Japan will resume commercial whaling Monday amid criticism from anti-whaling states a

上海419论坛nd environmental groups after the country withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) on Sunday.

Japan’s withdrawal from the IWC is the first time in its postwar history that it has withdrawn from a major international organization. Japan has lobbied for the resumption of commercial whaling for 30 years.上海419论坛

Last September, the IWC’s annual meeting rejected Japan’s latest proposal to resume commercial whaling. The Japanese government had threatened to withdraw from the international organization.

Japan announced its intention to withdraw last December, saying it was no longer possible to resume commercial whaling under IWC rules.

Several whaling ships are ready to leave the western port city of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, on Monday to start whali上海419论坛

ng in the Pacific. And in the northern city of Kushiro, Hokkaido Prefecture, five vessels plan to leave for whaling in nearby waters.

Japan says it will conduct commercial whaling only in its territorial waters and exclusive ec

上海419论坛女神会所onomic zones, hunting minke and other species that have large enough numbers, within quotas set by the IWC-adopted method.

Environmental activists are criticizing the resumption in light of resource conservation and animal protection.

Festive vibes spread across Hong Kong on Sunday with citywide celebrations to mark the 22nd anniversary of the city’s return to the motherland.

Speaking at the launch of a three-day gala in Victoria Park that features high-tech and innovations-the largest celebration eve

nt happening in the city-Chief Secretary for Administration Matthew Cheung Kin-chung said the Hong Kong Sp上海419论坛

ecial Administrative Region government wants to promote innovation and technology.

It has invested more than HK$100 billion ($12.8 billion) in innovation and technology, Cheung said.

上海419论坛女神会所Apart from offering hands-on experiences with gadgets, the gala features mu

sic concerts, trendy culture, a food festival and a special area for young people to showcase their creative ideas.

The fiesta, which started on Saturday, had attracted more than 60,000 visitors up to Sunday afternoon. It was one of som

e 360 celebrations held by the Hong Kong Celebrations Association, which is made up of 40 social groups from various sectors.上海419论坛女神会所

The association estimated that more than 300,000 Hong Kong people would take part in them.

Brave Chan Yung, the association’s acting executive chairman, said t

he festival aims to build a technology-friendly environment in Hong Kong, boost the cit上海419论坛女神会所

y’s science and technology development and provide a broad platform for Hong Kong youngsters.

People of all ages were seen snaking through the venue, event by event and booth by booth, to

try out advanced high-tech products featuring virtual reality, 5G telecommunications and artificial intelligence.

Hong Kong resident Tsang Ka-hei, 22, was amazed by a mind-co

ntrolled robot invented by Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre.

Tsang, who had a go at controlling the robot, was awed by the advanced product and

said he enjoyed the experience, adding that he had never seen such a device before.

In addition to the high-tech exhibition and food booths, music concerts by inter

national and local pop singers are also being staged in the park every night during the festival.

Focusing largely on standards and regulations, both crucial to a firm’s generic value chain, the report found however that when authorities take steps to reduce compliance costs, the competitiveness of SMEs is greatly improved.

It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.

Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation

and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.

The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”

In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec
