Edward Tse, founder and CEO of management consultancy Gao Feng Advisory, said that Lagarde’s comp

He said that an important part of leading the ECB is balancing the p

imes are more important than technical skills. And, in the ECB, there are already many economists to assist her.

“The most important part of leading the ECB is political sensitivity and political coord

上海龙凤419品茶微信ination capacity,” he said. “So EU leaders’ choice of Lagarde is very reasonable.”

He added that the EU’s economy lacks vitality, so whoever is ECB head will find it hard to change the situation.

Chen liked to say something to the audience about his pieces and I have always stopp

Born in Shanghai, Yu, 55, studied piano with his grandfather, the composer Ding Shande, before he

上海千花坊品茶微信was trained at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and later at the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin. On

his return from Europe, Yu has become a central character in the development of the Chinese classical music scene.

Like Yu, Chen, 68, is also a Shanghai native. In 1977, Chen was enrolled to study composition at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and in 1984上海千花坊

he moved to France where, for four years, he studied with Olivier Messiaen as the great French composer’s last pupil. He

上海千花坊品茶微信is best known as the musical director for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and composed the

song, You and Me. He is also known for his cooperation with Chinese film director Zhang Yimou on the 2001 ballet prod上海千花坊

uction, Raise the Red Lantern, based on Zhang’s film with the same title and the film, The Flowers of War, in 2011.上海千花坊品茶微信

 written between 1998 and 1999, is a five-movement suite, portrayi

ng the five traditional Chinese elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal.上海千花坊

“When I first wrote Wu Xing, the piece was not well received, since the melodies were not smo

oth and not considered beautiful in a traditional way,” says Chen. “But, over the course of the last 20 years, a gr

owing number of people have developed a liking for it and it’s beyond my expectation.”上海千花坊品茶微信

The violin concerto, La joie de la Souffrance, was written in 2017, and Chen added color w

ith a percussion section. Maxim Vengerov played the solo part and the violinist premiered the work alon

g with China Philharmonic under the baton of Yu during the 20th Beijing Music Festival.

The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra also knows the violin conce

rto very well since it was a test piece for the 2018 Shanghai Isaac

Stern International Violin Competition and was played by the six finalists, accompanied by the Orchestra.

“The relationship between a composer and his music is like that of a biological father and his

children. For the interpreters, like the conductors and symphony orchestras, they are like the ‘f

oster parents’ of the work,” says Chen. “As the ‘biological father’, I can do nothing about my work after I finished wr

ting it, but Yu has his own understanding of my music, which sometimes surprises me.”

Yuan Jiajun, governor of Zhejiang province, said at a news conference that despite Sino-US t

“Trade conflicts between China and the United States have jeopardized China’s trade environment. T

herefore, we are taking active measures to ensure both the growth rate and the national proportion of

上海千花网Zhejiang’s imports and exports to contribute to national economic development,” Yuan said.

Last June, the provincial government launched an online sup

ervision system that stores the information of enterprises’ export orders, he said.上海千花网品茶微信

Enterprises submit their export order information into the system so that the government is able to monitor ente

上海千花网rprises’ export situations to make forecasts and provide support for those enterprises.

Currently, over 40,000 exporters in Zhejiang have been registered in the monitoring syste

m, and each month the system offers export forecasts and analysis, serving as guidance for the go上海千花网品茶微信

vernment to take supportive measures when necessary to ensure healthy growth.

上海千花网In addition to boosting exports, the government is taking steps to foster new growth engines.

“Traditional trade may be hurt by the tough external environment, and therefor

make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were th上海千花坊女神会所

上海千花坊e whole, most students showed great interest in and confidence over the future of traditional Chinese culture.

The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The co上海千花坊女神会所

Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of studen上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所rld and Chinese affairs and maintaining an open mind without losing interest in traditional Chinese culture in th

e era of globalization are priorities in higher education, especially for liberal arts  students.

The contestants’ passion for traditional Chinese culture is the epitome of all college students’ reflection on Chinese culture上海千花坊女神会所

in China. They grew up in a prosperous and dynamic society with unlimited potential built by the older ge
