n the first half of 2019, a total of 6.86 million used cars
亚博体育登录夜网were sold across China, up 3.9 percent year-on-year. Overall sales hit 43.4 billio
n yuan, according to the latest data from the China Automobile Dealers Association.亚博体育登录夜网品茶微信
Luo Lei, deputy secretary-general of the China Automobile Dealers Association, said earlier that the booming market is tha
nks to the central government’s decision to remove limits on the flow of used vehicles across regions.
亚博体育登录夜网Since last year, China has ramped up efforts to scrap limits on cross-region flow of used
cars, as part of the country’s broader push to make the automobile industry globally competitive.
“This will encourage consumers to switch cars more frequently and
help enterprises to adjust their plans and explore untapped demand,” Luo said.亚博体育登录夜网品茶微信
China has about 240 million cars on the road, data from CADA showed, yet about 78 percent are from first-and second-tier cities.
“But demand for used vehicles chiefly comes from consumers in small cities, resulting in huge dema
亚博体育登录夜网品茶微信nd-supply imbalances geographically,” according to data from Youxin, an online used car dealer.
To tap into the demand, major car dealers including Renrenche, Youxin and CA
RS are all gearing up to enter more cities and provinces to boost market share.亚博体育登录夜网
Major ride-hailing firm Didi is also entering the mar
ket by buying used vehicles directly from Renrenche in a bid to lower costs.
亚博体育登录夜网品茶微信”The transaction volume between the two sides is likely to exceed
2 million vehicles in three years,” said Renrenche in an earlier statement.

China Economic Forum, where 19 agreements and memorandums were signed by a broad range of sect

mirati and Chinese businesses, five more to cap off an extremely fruitful trip to China.
The celebration culminated with the unveiling by His Highness of a new building for the new UAE embassy to China in B亚博体育登录会所品茶微信
eijing. A modern and forward-looking building, this provides a physical expression of the long-lasting vision for th
亚博体育登录会所e UAE-China relationship. The new embassy is a symbol in itself, and a physical expression of a blueprint come to
life, as the comprehensive strategic partnership outlined last year is in full swing, pro

The collective vision between our countries is bold. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bi亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

memorandum between the UAE Ministry of Education and the Confucius Institute headquarters of China, which wi亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

A two-month-old baby with serious illnesses was rushed by land and air from Enshi, Central China’s Hubei province, to Wuhan Chil
dren’s Hospital, 500 kilometers away, to receive urgent treatment by way of Yichang, a city in between.亚博体育登录夜生活
The boy, nicknamed Xiaoen, is an abandoned infant. About a month ago on June 16, he was discovered under a bri
亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信dge by a passerby in Lichuan, Enshi and sent to a local children’s welfare home for care and adoption.
One day later, the staff at the welfare home found Xiaoen’s face had turned blue and亚博体育登录夜生活
purple and he was short of breath. He was soon taken to the central hospital of Enshi.
亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信Xiaoen was diagnosed with a number of cardiac and pulmonary ill
nesses, including congenital heart disease, pulmonary infection and pulmonary arter亚博体育登录夜生活
ial hypertension. Treatments to strengthen the heart, help him urinate and control infection were given to the baby boy.
亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信During his 33-day hospitalization, Xiaoen was in critical condition and several times had to undergo emergency treatments.
Given the great complexity of Xiaoen’s case, the doctors decided to transfer him to a more advanced medica
l facility where he could receive advanced treatment to increase his chances of life. They contacted the Wuhan Children’s H亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信
ospital, a higher-level facility in the province’s capital, Wuhan, and asked for assistance.
On July 16, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital received the application for hospital transfer. After revie亚博体育登录夜生活
wing the case, a group of experts, including those specializing in cardiothoracic and cardiovascular diseases, came to the sa
亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信me conclusion: That the patient had been in critical condition, that heart failure emerged due to multiple pulm
onary infections and he was in need of operations as soon as possible. A hospital transfer became imperative.亚博体育登录夜生活
The distance from Enshi to Wuhan exceeds 500 kilometers. It would take at least eight ho
亚博体育登录夜生活urs for an ambulance to cover the distance, but a faster high-speed train or passenger plane couldn’t
be loaded with the medical equipment necessary to keep the baby alive during transport.
At last, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital decided to employ a medical rescue helicopter to transport the sick baby. It carries亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信
a ventilator, infusion pump, ECG monitor and many other medical devices and the trip to Enshi would only take two hours.
The transfer was originally scheduled for Wednesday but unfavorable weather conditions hindered the helicopter’s takeoff. R
亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信ainy season has been upon Hubei and massive rainfalls have affected many parts of the province. Mountain ranges on
the flight path have been shrouded in heavy mists and clouds, posing a high risk to the safety of the flight.亚博体育登录夜生活品茶微信
On Friday, Xiaoen’s condition deteriorated again. There was not much time left to wait and a new plan was proposed.
