This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

亚博体育注册419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year亚博体育注册419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.亚博体育注册419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 亚博体育注册419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

In 1998, Xin was recruited by Li Bo, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to joi

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 亚博体育注册品茶微信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 亚博体育注册品茶微信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 亚博体育注册品茶微信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.亚博体育注册品茶微信

亚博提现要多久亚博体育注册O’Neill i 亚博体育注册品茶微信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亚博体育注册品茶微信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

亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所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亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所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.

Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.亚博体育注册千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

tracts. They can further level the playing field for both homegrown and foreign companies.”亚博体育注册千花坊

Bipartisan political support for China bashing in the savings-shor

Iranian Minister of Inform亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所munications Techn

hnology Moham亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所mad Javad Azari Jahromi also decried US cyber attacks on

Iran over the past years, saying that “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time.”

Earlier this month, the United States claimed Iran is responsible for an attack on two oil

tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The accusation was dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

Over the accusation, Zarif has said the United States immediately jumped to make allegat

ions against Iran was a plan to use sabotage diplomacy to cover up its economic terrorism against Iran.

Following the attack on the oil tankers, the Pentagon authorized the d

eployment of about 1,000 additional troops to the region for so-called “defensive purpose.”

This was preceded by the deployment of the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group, bo

mbers, the amphibious transport dock and Patriot air defense system to the region in early May.

The painting is striking because of the contrast between its bright colors and sharp angles. The roo
