President Xi Jinping anno亚博在线手机会所 that China wnping ann

ould launch the new tech board and pilot the registration-based initial public offering syst

亚博在线手机会所em. In a high-profile meeting in February, Xi called for improvements in the fundamental rules of capital markets.

The STAR Market has been seen as the testing ground of capital market reforms. No daily limit

of stock price rises or losses was imposed on the first five trading 亚博在线手机会所品茶微信days, and after that a 20-percent dai

ly limit was adopted, versus a 10-percent limit for other boards of the A-share market.

亚博在线手机会所As the 20-percent daily limit is applied from next Monday and as investors understand more about the fundame

ntals of the listed stocks, the volatility of the new market is set to decrease, Wang said.

“Prices of stocks on the STAR Market are expected not to continue g亚博在线手机会所品茶微信

oing up or down together but to diverge, as investors take a closer look at the listed firms’ fu

ndamentals, instead of regarding stocks on the new board as a whole,” Wang said.

亚博在线手机会所Li Daxiao, chief economist at Shenzhen-based Yingda Securities, said stocks of the new market m

ay be overvalued as investors chased the small amount of listings on the new board, citing that the average price-t

o-earnings ratio, a common gauge of valuation, of the STAR Market has risen to more than 100.亚博在线手机会所品茶微信

But any bursting of a price bubble is unlikely to happen, Li said, as the number of listed firms will not increase sharply.

亚博在线手机会所Although the new board may draw funds from the other submarket

s, it is unlikely to weigh on the performance of the whole A-share market in the third quarter, Li added.

“The actual impact of draining liquidity is limited, but it was the uncertainty that took a toll on in亚博在线手机会所

vestor sentiment. With the smooth debut of the STAR Market, such concerns will gradually disappear,” Li said.

亚博在线手机会所品茶微信The whole A-share market may rally in the third quarter, given ex

pectations of the accommodative monetary environment, the influx of foreign cap

ital, and the recovery in listed firms’ financial performances as the economy stabilizes, according to Li.亚博在线手机会所品茶微信

?亚博在线手机会所”China is not the only one that wants to conclude a trade deal. The US wants it, too,

” Geng said at a regular news conference. “American people, especially consum

Stephen Roach, one of Wall Street’s leading authorities on Asia,

?亚博在线手机会所suggested in an interview that China is in no rush to cut a trade deal with the US.

China’s services sector, which contributed 54.9 percent to the country’s total GDP, rose 7 percent in the first half, surpa?亚博在线手机会所

Luo also noted that inte亚博在线手机会所mpanies are the new

?this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E

arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en亚博在线手机会所

hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.

亚博在线手机会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it

took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc

h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.亚博在线手机会所

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict

亚博在线手机会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig

ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.亚博在线手机会所

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea

亚博在线手机会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ

ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res

toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit,?The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien亚博在线手机会所

ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im

ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 亚博在线手机会所品茶微信

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa

亚博在线手机会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan

ted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

?亚博在线手机会所品茶微信ear, about 5.8 percentage points higher than overall trade growth, accounting for 28.9 of the country’s total trade.

Domestic sales also are on the rise, especially in high-tech products, given China’s industrial upgrades amid rising domestic demand.

“Affected by Sino-US economic and trade frictions, agricultural trade亚博在线手机会所品茶微信

“Trade in agricultural products is an important issue that needs to be discussed betw
