“The key task is to prevent debt default risk,” said Wan Cunzhi, director-general of the PBOC’s Credit Information System Bu

gton and Moscow over the INF Treaty, the first such agreement to reduce the two countries’ nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, has left the treaty hanging in limbo.
上海后花园女神会所It goes without saying that the exit of both signatories from the tre
aty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stabili
ty of the world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Trea上海后花园
ty is the US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US dispensation assumed offi
上海后花园女神会所ce in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and me
chanisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.
Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving上海后花园
bilateral relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their face
上海后花园女神会所off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side
s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the
ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海后花园
Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma
上海后花园女神会所ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev
elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.
Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d上海后花园女神会所
eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuelli
上海后花园ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major
powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.What is especi
ally surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discussions on certain intern上海后花园
ational issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has play
上海后花园女神会所ed an important role in improving international relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding glo
bal strategic balance and stability, and therefore remains very much relevant and sig
nificant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the US’ unilateral w

saw a drop in profit can be complicated. On one hand, last year’s tax crackdown and tightened regulatory policies in taxes have ce
rtainly struck some major players, costing them both time and money to pay the fine and restructure their上海千花坊
businesses,” said Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University.
上海千花坊女神会所”On the other hand, China’s film box office market is heading toward saturation, which m
eans that the profit surge that many entertainment companies saw in the past is less likely to happen,” Chen added.
Data from the National Radio and Television Administration
showed box office revenue in the first half of 2019 in China stood at 31.17 billion yuan, down 2.7 per上海千花坊
cent year-on-year. Cinema visits dropped 10.3 percent year-on-year to 808 million visits within the same period.
Chen believes, though, the companies will bounce back.
上海千花坊女神会所”The industry is still likely to see a boom in the near future as there is more market pote
ntial to be tapped, such as film derivatives (toys and figure models), various genres of intellectual properties or t
rans-media storytelling (presenting the story with multiple platforms like films, TV shows, and games),” Chen said.上海千花坊
“Such approaches to IP development can be an effective way to generate more revenue for entertainment companies,” he added.
Wanda and Huayi said in their statements that losses were due上海千花坊女神会所
to a lack of projects premiering in the first half of the year. Most of Huayi’s film projects such
as The Eight Hundred directed by Guan Hu would premiere in the second half of 2019.
“It’s common that entertainment companies adjust their film distribution plans based on market de上海千花坊
mand, and choose to release their films during a certain period of time to maximize their profits,” Chen said.
“But it is certainly not the reason why a majority of entertainment
companies saw a drop in profit. Although it is common for entertainment companies to premie上海千花坊女神会所
re their major film projects in second-half seasons with peak demand, it is unlikely for most of them to do so at the same
time, as the first half of the year also has many peak movie-going seasons,” said Chen.
