In the Antarctic, there are no artificial facilities to pre

event wild animals from being touched by tourists. In such conditions, education on wildlife protection before the tour will be needed,” he said.

nimal-friendly tourism during the trip, which will make the tour much more meaningful and unforgettable.”

Apart from travel agencies, online tourism information platforms are also contributing efforts to promote wildlife-frien

dly tours. Qyer.com-a Chinese website that enables travel enthusiasts to write notes and exchange experiences, has

recently added a new item of “not chasing tigers in the national parks” into their travel guidebook for India.

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companie

 to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and

systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

ually encouraged China to increase investment in its high-tech sector. So, even if China and the US were to strike a de

al, China would be prompted to import lower volumes of energy and agricultural products from the US.

Shanghai purrs over new Hello Kitty theme park

The world’s only Hello Kitty-themed pavilion brings a fantasy world with a retro decor for fans in Shanghai.

Hello Kitty Shanghai Times was launched by propert

y developer Shimao Group and Japanese animation powerhouse Sanrio on March 29.

By creating an immersive experience of Shanghai during three symbolic periods of the city’s history – the 1930s, 1980s and today – the

indoor theme park provides a unique experience for visitors with Sanrio’s best-known characters, incl

uding Hello Kitty, My Melody, Badtz-Maru, Pompompurin, Keroppi and Cinnamoroll.

The time travel-themed attraction is located at Shimao Festiva

Economic data for March have beaten market expectat

ons in many aspects, and based on those data, China’s year-on-year GDP gr

owth rate in the first quarter may reach 6.3 percent or a bit higher,” said Liu Chun

sheng, an associate professor of economics at the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.

Improved market expectations resulting from progress in the Sino-US trade talks and Beijing’s tax and

fee cut plan, as well as eased liquidity, have helped to offset negative effects of the traditional Spring Fes

tival holiday and downside pressure that continued from the end of last year, Liu said.

China has set this year’s GDP growth rate target at 6 percent to 6.5 perce

nt, after registering full-year growth of 6.6 percent in 2018 and 6.4 percent in the fourth

quarter. The NBS is scheduled to announce the country’s first-quarter economic growth data on Wednesday.
