Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a venue for dance dra
上海品茶微信女神会所mas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.
After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perm
anent theme. Chinese acrobatics is a spectacular performance art characterized by amazing physical feat上海品茶微信
s and gravity-defying stunts, inspired by the struggle between humans and nature.
Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was in
上海品茶微信女神会所spired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app
eared during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). It was refined during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC
-AD 24), when pole climbing and tightrope walking debuted on stage. The most famous performance at that time, Gua上海品茶微信
ng Chang Bai Xi, saw a rich variety of acrobatic acts performed simultaneously in a public square.
Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, including up to four d上海品茶微信

inspired by the notion that one day the human mind and body would be able to fly freely.上海品茶微信女神会所
The storytelling mixes flips, falls, dance and high-wire spectacle with the latest in high-tech sound and lighting, to whisk the
audiences away to the world of Sichuan some 3,000 years ago. At the show’s climax, live peacocks and macaws fr

pening-up in China’s services sector, together with high-tech development supported by artificial intelligence, will help lift Chinese
economic growth from 6.3 percent to around 7 percent by 2035, said Zhu Min, a former deputy managing director at the IMF.
“Market-oriented reform and opening-up will improve productivity in the service sector, whi
ch is an important thing that China is focusing on to stabilize economic growth,” Zhu said.
Chen Yulu, a vice-governor of the PBOC, also supported a “full-scale” opening of the financial sector. In the future, foreign invest
ors are welcome to conduct all forms of financial business in China, excepting those being named on a nega
tive list, and authorities are researching a new regulatory system, Chen said at the forum on Saturday.
dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.
Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere
d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.
China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J
A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp
ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.
The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth
er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

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.
