Amazon to end local 3rd-party sales in Chinaon offices in Ne

US-based tech giant Amazon.com Inc plans to shut down its third-party seller services on its Chinese online marketplace

in July, as it shifts its focus to offering Chinese mainland consumers overseas products rather than goods from local sellers.

Starting July 18, customers logging in to Amazon’s Chinese web portal will only see a selec

tion of goods from its global store, rather than products from local third-party sellers.

Amazon said it will keep running its other businesses in China, inclu

ding the cross-border shopping business Amazon Global Store; Global Selling, which helps Chin

ese merchants sell products abroad; its cloud service platform Amazon Web Services; and Kindle e-book devices and content.

“Over the past few years, we have been evolving our China online retail business to increasingly

emphasize cross-border sales, and in return we’ve seen a very strong response from Chinese customers.

May said on arrival that she did not want a long delay

 “I want us to be able to leave the European Union in a smooth and orderly way as soon as possible,” she told reporters.

Her EU peers, however, are sceptical about her ability to break the dead

lock soon. They are exasperated with May’s handling of a tortuous and costly divorce that is a di

straction from ensuring the bloc can hold its own against global economic challenges.

Across from the summit venue, the EU executive celebrated its part in funding a global project that produced the first p

icture of a black hole, prompting no shortage of ironic comments on social media about the juxtaposition.

Blogger Eliot Higgins tweeted: “We’re now more certain about what black holes look like than what Brexit looks like.”

One of the country’s major movie events, the 9th Beijing International Film Festival, will o

Second, although traveling has become more convenie

nt for Chinese people because of the rapid development of high-speed trains and the civil aviation industry, the transfer

from one mode of transport to another can still be troublesome at times. For instance, some high-speed train stati

ons have been built far away from the cities they serve, dragging down travel efficiency.

And third, some practices-such as free highway passage-may aggravate the conflict between supply and demand.

To solve these problems, which could worsen during holidays, synchronized planning and cooperation of multiple departmen

ts are required. To cope with holiday traffic, the authorities should also promote smart transportation and use a

dvanced technologies including artificial intelligence and big data to improve travel efficiency.

I am offering to sit down with the leader of the op

osition and to try to agree a plan that we would both stick to ensure that we leave the European Union and that we do so with a deal.”

The pound rallied against the dollar as much as 0.3 percent to above $1.31. It also strengthened against the euro to 85.43 pence.

May said that if she could not agree a unified approach with

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn then the government would agree a number of options o

n the future relationship with the EU and put them before the House of Commons in a series of votes.

The government, she said, would then abide by the decision of the House of Commons.

Her divorce deal with the EU has been defeated three times by the lower house of the Briti

sh parliament, which failed on Monday to find a majority of its own for any alternatives.

The impasse has already delayed Brexit for at least two weeks beyond the planned departure date on April 12.

The government has ruled out holding another referendu

um on Britain’s EU membership, but could change its mind if there appeared no other way to pass a Brexit deal.

Britain voted 52 percent to 48 percent to leave the EU in 2016. Since then, polls sugge

st the “remain” side has gained in strength, but it’s far from clear who would win a new referendum.

The new vote could leave Britain just as divided over Europe as it is now.

We will step up efforts to expand cooperation with sho

video platforms such as Kuaishou, Bilibili, Douyin and Huoshan, to obtain more data flows and encourage brands and buyers to do more live broadcasts,” Zeng said.

It also plans to tap into the social e-commerce sector, which is currently in its testing phase.

Experts say the livestreaming explosion is boosting China’s e-commerce sector. The new

format could display the commodities in more dimensions and increase users’ trust.

Cao Lei, director of China E-Commerce Research Center, said this method could attract consume

rs’ attention quickly and accurately as most of the livestreaming users are post-90s generation who are accusto

med to shopping online, as well as help online retailers to gain data flows and create a “real” shopping scenario.

“Immediate feedbacks could be given to merchants based on users’ instructions. Through their

mobile phones, consumers are able to talk with overseas buyers, which will greatly enhance users’ trust on the platform.”

China’s cross-border e-commerce sector has been growing rapid

ly over the past few years, owing to a rapid growth in the nation’s middle and high-income shoppers.
