largest source of imports. Given that Italy enjoys many tec

hnology and brand advantages, it has become one of the main destinations for Chinese ente

rprises’ overseas investment in recent years, with the scale of investment gradually increasing.

The establishment of the China-Italy Government Committee and dialogue mechanisms such as regul

ar meetings between the Chinese premier and Italian prime minister has provided a solid institutional foundation for cooperation bet

ween the two countries. And frequent high-level interactions between the two sides have deepened their economic ties.

But there is still enough room to expand Sino-Italian economic relations. In terms of trade, th

e industrial structures of China and Italy are highly complementary, and the huge potential for

bilateral cooperation in manufacturing, agriculture and innovation has not been fully tapped.

China has a vast market and is the world’s second-largest impor

Sales of anti-hair loss products, sleeping pills and aids show market revival

Chinese born in the 1990s, long troubled by hectic lifestyles marked by working till late, heavy

The visit is meant to consolidate the stability and strate

gic nature of the China-Italy relations in the long term, and comp

rehensively elevate the level of their mutually beneficial cooperation, Xi said.

China is willing to enhance high-level guidance with the Italian side, respect each other

‘s major concerns, jointly build the Belt and Road, explore cooperation with third parties, boost cu

The Chinese president stressed that in recent years, China’s National People’s Congress and the Italian Senate have established a regular exchange mechanism.

China supports the two countries’ legislative bodies to carry out multi-level, wide-ranging and multi-channel exch

anges and cooperation, and share successful experience on major issues such as legislative supe

rvision, state governing, national economy and the people‘s livelihood, on the basis of mutual respect and mutual learning, Xi said.

The new bridge is now designated for freight vehicles, while the First Be

The real reason, according to former US treasury secretary Larry Summers, was that the Obama adm

He said he was asked by his employer to stay home for

mental illness and not go back to work until he recovered.”The utmost goal is like Zhuge Liang (of the Three Kingd

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno

wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”

“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red

Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.

Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.

“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”

After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who

are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.
