FUZHOU – In the Chinese city of Quanzhou, East China’s

Fujian province, workers at a garment factory of Kelme are busy stitching and ironing the white and blue jerseys of the Spanish football club Espanyol.

Their goal is to meet the soaring domestic demand boosted by Wu

Lei, a Chinese striker who joined the club a month ago. Wu made history by becoming the first Ch

inese player to score in a La Liga match on March 2, sending his fans into a frenzy.

“Over the last month, we have sold over 10,000 Wu Lei jerseys,” said Ke Yongyuan, presid

ent of Kelme (China), who owns the Yuanxiang garment company in the sportswear manufacturing hub.

Prior to Wu’s debut in Europe, Yuanxiang acquired 80 per

cent of Kelme’s shares and became the controlling shareholder of the renowned inter

national brand. Yuanxiang’s expansion offers a glimpse into Chinese manufacturers’ endeavor of going global.

that a stay of less than 24 hours on the mainland will not be counted as a day, and the count started from Jan. 1 this year.

rs and non-mainland citizens working in the mainland. The move will attract more foreign investm

ent and overseas talent to work in the mainland, the STA said in a statement on its website.

Previously, the exemption was for tax residents who have lived on the mainland for less than five years.A house collapse triggered by a lan

Just in the past hour, I spoke with my South Korean count

  terpart and we’ve discussed their reaction and our reaction, but I would like to speak further within US govern

ment before we respond,” Bolton told reporters on the White House North Lawn Friday.

  It comes after the US special representative for North Kore

a said Monday that Washington would not accept a phased denuclearization by Pyong

yang and maintained that the two nations remain closely engaged despite the collapse of the Hanoi summit.

  ”Let me start by saying the obvious — that diplomacy is still very much alive,” Stephen B

iegun said at the Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference in Washington, DC on Monday. “While we haven’t made as much progress in the six

months as I would’ve hoped coming in on the first day, we stay closely engaged with our counterparts in North Korea.”

  He downplayed recent satellite images that analysts say show activity at North Korea

n missile sites and urged against making any “snap judgment” on the significance of the images that appear to sho

w that North Korea has begun rebuilding a portion of the Sohae facility previously used to test long-range missile engines.

Chen Jingxue, a researcher with Kantar Worldpanel, sai

many Chinese leave their hometowns to make a living in big cities, where they live alone. This makes it inevitable that they will do things on their own at times.

“Due to life’s stresses, sometimes they will actively look for the chance to escape from social interaction to enjoy solitude. As a re

sult, dining, traveling and singing karaoke or watching movies alone has become more common,” she said.

Chen added that the perception of single people has witnessed profound

changes, as there is no longer any stigma attached to them and many prefer to remain alone.

“Whether in TV shows or movies, there are increasing scenarios that tell people they sho

uld remain independent, and it is possible to live a nice life without getting married, especially for women,” she said.

North Korea’s coal sales have historically been some of

  the country’s most valuable exports. UN sanctions meant to punish Pyongyang for its 2017 missile

and nuclear tests put a cap on the amount of coal the country was allowed to sell internationally. The mea

sures also capped the amount of oil and energy products the country was allowed to import.

  The report accused banks and insurance companies across the wor

ld of “unwittingly” facilitating and providing “coverage for vessels involved in ever-lar

ger… illegal ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products, and an increasing number of ship-to-ship coal transfers.”

  It added that North Korea “has attempted to supply small arms and light weapons and other military equipment to Hou

thi rebels in Yemen, as well as to Libya and the Sudan, via foreign intermediaries.”

  North Korea has long sought the removal of UN sanctions and portrayed the measures as violations of its sovereignty.
