commerce giant pump primes Juhuasuan to cash in on abundant opportunities

Times are changing fast at e-commerce behemoth Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. While st亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

ore-openings from a range of global brands like Burberry to Ferragamo were

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.

Against flattened economic growth and brutally aggressive competition, Alibaba is no

w giving unprecedented priority to Juhuasuan, its group-buying and flash-sale platfor亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

m, repositioning it as the top destination for consumers from smaller cities and townships.

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活The internet giant said recently that it will host a Super Bargain Day from Sept 1, halving prices for 1 million me

rchandise and giving out cash dividends, coupons and other perks. Unlike the

more reputable Nov 11 annual sales event, the 10-day event is targeted at good-quality budget items.亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

“We see massive growth in lower-tier cities this year via the Juhuasuan platform. This is the

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活engine fueling future growth and a bluesea market-meaning opportunities abound for each and e

very industry player to take a share,” said Liu Bo, general manager of Juhuasuan.

Media publications and industry analysts often categorize C亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

hinese cities into tiers, defining them based on population, gross domestic prod

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活uct and other criteria. Tier-one cities normally refer to super metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai.

Alibaba’s strategy to penetrate into lower-tier markets has reaped some early gains. In the

quarter ending June 30, over 70 percent of increased annual active consumers came from less dev亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

eloped markets. The company attributed the achievement to initiatives to cater to a b

roader user base, such as “using simpler interfaces for first-time or less-frequent users”.亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活

Realizing the potential, Juhuasuan has announced a slew of plans to rev up services. On the

supply side, the platform aims to help manufacturers digitize their factories through consumer ana亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

lytics and the internet of things technology. Liu said he hopes such efforts will foster

brands, create 1 million sought-after items and nurture 10,000 digital plants.

China firmly opposes the United States’ new threat to impose additional tariffs on about $550 billion

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活worth of Chinese imports, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce said on Saturday.

In a brief statement, the ministry said the US act is unilateral, trade protectionism, and using maximum pressure.

It violates the consensus reached between the top leaders of the two co亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

untries, severely undermines the multilateral trading system and normal internat

ional trade order, and Washington will eat the bitter fruits of its own action, the ministry said.

“Such unilateral and bullying acts of trade protectionism and extreme pressure ru亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活

n counter to the consensus of the heads of state of China and the United States, and run

counter to the principles of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit,” the spokesperson said.亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

The ministry urged Washington to immediately stop its wrongful deeds, otherwise it will “bear all the consequences.”

The ministry warned the US administration not to misj

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活udge the situation, nor to underestimate the determination of the Chinese people.

Trump’s retaliation aga亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活me after Beijing on

?Friday said it would retaliate against Trump’s plans for the imposition of tariffs on $300 billion in Chinese goods on Se

pt 1 and Dec 15 by slapping levies on US imports valued at $75 billion on the same dates. In a statement, China’s Com亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活

merce Ministry said the action was “forced by the US’s unilateralism and protectionism.”

In response, Trump tweeted: “Our country has lost stupidly, Trillions of Dollars with China ov

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所er many years. They have stolen our Intellectual Property at a rate of Hundreds of Billions of Dollars a year, &

they want to continue. I won’t let that happen! We don’t need China and, frankly, would be better off without them.”

Trump demanded that American companies “immediately st亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活

art looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and mak

ing your products in the USA.” Trump has no authority to tell US companies how to operate.

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活Following Trump’s tweet post, David French, the senior vice-presid

ent of government relations of the National Retail Federation, tweeted: “It is un

realistic for American retailers to move out of the world’s second largest economy…”亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

Industry insiders also said any worry that overseas brokerages will overtake their Chinese counterparts overnight would be unfounded.

Li Xunlei, chief economist at Zhongtai Securities, said domestic players still lacking the nec

Mohsine el Baghdadi always wanted to be an English teacher in China, considering such a job to be ideal.

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活A friend who taught English in China told the 27-year-old Moroccan that foreign teac

hers are in high demand, there are boundless opportunities and the jobs are well paid.

Baghdadi’s own experience confirmed this. Replies flooded in after he posted a message on Facebook, stating: “Hello fro亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

Morocco. I am an English-language teacher searching for a good job with a good salary in China.”

Many of the replies were job invitations from recruitment agencies, whi

亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活le others came from language institutes. For the most part, they told Baghdadi that a

pplying for a job in China was straightforward. It was sufficient merely to submit a resume.

The salary also was tempting. Baghdadi teaches English in Morocco, where he is paid $500 a month. However, those who ap亚博娱乐官网平台夜生活女神会所

proached him from China offered a monthly salary ranging from $1,500 to $2,500, with a bonus.
