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

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

With Tuesday’s victory, von der Leyen has become the first Germ

Juncker, also from the EPP, offered his congratulations on Twitter, saying: “This job is a

European Council President Donald Tusk said in a tweet: “Congratulations [email protected] Congratulations Europe.”

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who will succeed Tusk on Dec 1, said on Twitter that h上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所Von der Leyen, a mother of seven, had the backing of her own EPP as well as the cent

The Greens and some left-wing and right-wing parties were the most vocal in opposing her nomination.

Ska Keller, co-leader of the Greens, offered her congratulations after the announcement of the vote result. But in a tweet af

During the morning speeches, many members of the European Parliament delivered scath

Monika Vana, an Austrian MEP of the Greens, blasted von der Leyen’s argument for more military spending. “A majori

and education as a priority. That’s what this majority of citizens wants,” she said.

She is planning to make a documentary that reflects the natural ecology of Hoh Xil and Sanjiangyuan. “Th

Titled Thinking of the Se上海夜生活ades of History at My

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno

wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信

About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin

上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year

posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.

According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信

mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be

上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.

The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in

2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信

14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.

上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi

s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.

“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信

1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.

上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint

ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma

o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信

Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin

上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu

rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信

ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col

上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.

“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp

ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.

“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th

e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le

ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”

Li Yang says that the Be上海乌托邦d tourism authorit

ority will continue to come up with measures to grow the construction of facilities t

hat protect intangible cultural heritage and offer better conditions for cultural inheritors.上海乌托邦品茶微信

So far, several masters of intangible culture have moved in, and the park is talking

上海乌托邦with more than 30 inheritors nationwide about some form of cooperation.

The park offers more than 30 spaces for traditional artists to meet guests and show their work.

For example, many artists will make bracelets because they are currently popular,” Zhang says.上海乌托邦品茶微信

“But jade, after all, is non-renewable. If we all cut good material to make quick consumables, it would be pointless,” he adds.

上海乌托邦Zhang believes joining Yongyuan will allow for more thorough, long-term learning am

ong artisans in his field and collaboration with designers who are more familiar with the market.

The ultimate goal is to better combine the art of jade sculpture with tasteful design and then h上海乌托邦

elp the public to gain a better appreciation for the beauty of this traditional art, Zhang says.

上海乌托邦The China National Textile and Apparel Council has also settled in the park.

Handbags and clothes bearing elements of intangible culture are neatly placed at the co上海乌托邦品茶微信

uncil’s workshop for visitors to appreciate and, if it tickles their fancy, purchase.

上海乌托邦”We will mainly showcase products deriving from intangible cultural heritage i

nnovation in the field of textiles,” says Xia Jingjing, an employee with the textile council.

These products are selected from art masters working in the industry nationwide.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The council will also invite textile art masters to mee

t with designers and develop new products for the future, according to Xia.

“The Yongyuan office will also be a good platform to test the wate上海乌托邦

r and see what kinds of textile products appeal to consumer tastes,” Xia says.

上海乌托邦品茶微信Zhang Tiecheng, a Chinese arts and crafts master, is one of the first to move into Yongyuan.

His workshop at the park now presents a range of delicate jade items on sale to the public.

Zhang has engaged in the art of jade sculp

ting-an art form once practiced by ancient royal houses-for more than three decades.

He says that people are increasingly interested in the field because of its growi

ng returns, but that has unfortunately led many inheritors of art to make items purely for money.
