Alibaba banking on l银河官网亚博投注网夜生活er citiesses an adv

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银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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

银河官网亚博投注网夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.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银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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

银河官网亚博投注网夜生活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.银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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

银河官网亚博投注网夜生活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银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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

银河官网亚博投注网夜生活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银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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”.银河官网亚博投注网夜生活

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银河官网亚博投注网夜生活女神会所

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.

New personal mortg银河官网亚博投注网419论坛 to be based on LPR

China will link the personal mortgage loan rate to a new lending rate reference, starting fr

om Oct 8, to make it more flexible and market-driven, the central bank said in a statement on Sunday.银河官网亚博投注网419论坛

For purchasing the first house, individual borrowers of new mortgage loan will pay an intere

银河官网亚博投注网419论坛品茶微信st rate of no less than 4.85 percent – it is the five-year loan prime rate, or LPR, th

e new reference of bank lending reported by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, on Aug 20.

Buyers of second house should pay an interest rate that is 0.6 perc银河官网亚博投注网419论坛

entage point above the LPR, which will be 5.45 percent, said the statement.

The existing mortgage loans, with the contracts signed earlier than Oct 8, will keep the old interest rates unchanged, it added.

银河官网亚博投注网419论坛品茶微信”That is almost at the same level of the current lowest person

al mortgage loan rate,” a spokesman with the PBOC said. “Compare with the si

tuation before the reform, the interest expense will be basically unchanged for borrowers.”银河官网亚博投注网419论坛

Liu Guoqiang, a vice-governor of the PBOC, said at a press

银河官网亚博投注网419论坛品茶微信conference last week that even under the new interest ra

te scheme, the rate for mortgage loans will not be lower, as the government will not ease the

real estate control policy nor “use real estate as a tool to stimulate short-term economic growth”.银河官网亚博投注网419论坛

The new method to set mortgage loan rate is part of the market-driven reform of the cou

ntry’s overall interest rate system, which made a remarkable progress on Au银河官网亚博投注网419论坛品茶微信

bathtub is a favorite image among?Titanic?enthusiasts, and that’s now gone. That whole deck hole on that银河官网亚博投注网会所品茶微信

He said the sloping lounge roof of the bow section would probably be the next part to be

Lori Johnson, a scientist on the project, said: “The future of the wreck is going to continue to deteriorate over time, it’s a natural

process. These are natural types of bacteria, so the reason that the deterioration process ends up being quite a bit

银河官网亚博投注网会所品茶微信faster, is a group of bacteria, a community working symbiotically to eat, if you will the iron and the sulfur.”

Vescovo, a submersible pilot, said: “It’s a big wreck, I wasn’t quite prepared for how large it was. It was extraordinary to see it all, an

d the most amazing moment came when I was going along the side of the?Titanic?and the bright lights of the submers银河官网亚博投注网会所
