In order to develop into a demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characte

yabo888体育乌托邦Shenzhen’s expanded cooperation with Hong Kong will also lay a solid fo

Just more than 30 years ago, Hong Kong residents used to be reluctant to visit neighboring Shenzhen. It was not only the complica

Today, Hong Kong residents marvel at the pace and ease with which Shenzhen has transformed intoyabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

a global innovation center, offering more opportunities and oozing more vitality than Hong Kong.

China will never seek hegemony, expansion or spheres of influence, and the People’s Libera

ational interests and world peace, a defense white paper published on Wednesday said.

The white paper, on China’s national defense, published by the Informayabo888体育乌托邦

yabo888体育乌托邦女神会所ehensive one since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012.

“The development of China’s national defense aims to meet its rightful se

“History proves and will continue to prove that China will never follow the beaten track of big powers seeking hegem

and provide more public security services in adherence with common expectations of the interna

faced by countries involved in China and the Belt and Road Initiative. According to the statement of the univeryabo888体育乌托邦

yabo888体育乌托邦The projects cover research and surveys on specific themes before com

Ten of the projects will be carried out during the summer, while the remaining threyabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

yabo888体育乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.

“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

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.yabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

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

yabo888体育乌托邦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.yabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

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

yabo888体育乌托邦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 hyabo888体育乌托邦

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

yabo888体育乌托邦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 coyabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

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

yabo888体育乌托邦”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.yabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信

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 wateyabo888体育乌托邦

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

yabo888体育乌托邦品茶微信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.

So by holding lectures, conducting dialogues and screen

Many modern and contemporary works of Chinese literature touch on common rural issues – childhood upbringing, family inheritance and people’s exp

erience of being stuck on the bottom rung of society – that have been rooted in Chinese farming culture for thousands of years.

China’s urbanization has been rapidly progressing to the extent that rural life has become

something unfamiliar to the majority of the population, which is very different from what it was like just three de

cades ago, according to Ge Fei, author and a Chinese literature professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
