2018 was 63 percent-and domestic movies raked in 14.8 billion yuan, a fall of 17.5 percent compared to last year.

At the Shanghai festival, which runs through Monday, seven top Chinese studio chiefs gathered for the first forum there to discuss the challenges ahead.

Yu Dong, chairman and CEO of the Bona Film Group, says last year was “a severe winter” for the

industry. Nearly half of the publicly-listed film companies saw their market valuations shrink.

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their s

urrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never bee

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese maritim

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,”

Shao said. “As a result, the PLA has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands i

Lippi, who led his native Italy to World Cup glory in 2006

was first hired in November 2016, but his original two-year stint in China delivered littl

e to cheer about. He was unable to take China to the World Cup finals in Russia in 2018.

The 71-year-old Lippi had stepped down in January, after the country’s quarterfinal

exit from the Asian Cup, when he reportedly became furious in the dressing room after China’s crushing 3-0 loss to Iran.

Lippi’s first game in his second tenure will be a friendly match with the Philippines in Guangzhou o

n June 7, as Team China prepares for the second round of Asian zone qualifying for Qatar 2022, which kicks off in September.

“I think I’d vote for Lippi to come back,” 38-year-old Team China capt

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.

Ministry of Industry and Information Technology data show

ed China’s digital economy had reached more than 27 trillion yuan ($4 trillio

n) in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 20.3 percent, accounting for nearly 33 percent of GDP.

Lu said the growth rate of the number of people working as new media operators in 2017 was mo

re than 10 times that of 2013. The growth comes as more consumers turn from mass media to new me

dia, which provides more information, is faster, has a more diversified presentation and cheaper cost.

Algorithm engineers, in particular, grew at exponential rates. More than fi

ve times as many people worked as algorithm engineers in 2017 than 2013, he said.

“Algorithm is the foundation for artificial intelligence. AI has started to integrate with other industr

ies and already had been successfully implemented in AI plus marketing, finance and assisted medical dia

gnosis. AI engineers will have more value as AI becomes more closely tied with more businesses,” Lu said.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.
