But I must borrow that money from my relatives and frien

nds because all my saved money has been spent on building a new home for the yo

上海千花坊ung couple and buying new necessities for them, such as household appliances,” Shan said.

Luckily, Shan had reason to celebrate because he was saved by a new rule.

Right before the wedding, a specific standard was established banning high-priced betrothal gifts, or caili in上海千花坊

Chinese. Other extravagant customs, including holding grand wedding ceremonies or funeral rites as well as inviting an e

xorbitant number of guests and using lots of cars to pick up the bride and her relatives, were also prohibited.上海千花坊

The government of Feixiang district – which covers 265 villages, including Shan’s, with a population of 410,000 – found the competitio

上海千花坊n to see who could give the best betrothal gifts and hold the grandest wedding ceremonies had become a big headache for villagers.

Families of young women envied those who gave lots of money to a bride’s family and held ex

pensive ceremonies with many guests, said Cai Fuhai, Party chief of Nanduqi village.上海千花坊女神会所

They would ask parents of their soon-to-be sons-in-law for similar treatment, Cai said.

According to the standard, no more than six cars can be used for picking up the bride and her rela

tives. Previously, up to 40 cars would be used as part of a grand and impressive wedding ceremony.上海千花坊

Furthermore, guests are served a simple meal – a vegetable and meat stew, or daguocai in Chinese – rather than a meal wit

Families who obey the standard may enjoy benefits such as free physical examinations for parents and

newborns at local hospitals. Pregnant women may also receive discounts for examinations during pregnancy, Cai said.

Families who do not obey the rules are required to make a self-critical s

peech during a meeting attended by villagers and local government officials. Those wh上海千花坊女神会所

o refuse to make the speech and admit their wrongdoings are exposed on local television and other media platforms.

Villagers fall in line

According to the Feixiang district government, more than 1,000 families of young wom

en have refrained from demanding betrothal gifts from their bridegrooms’ families since 2017. About 1

00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.

Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b

y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.

And given that the other major economies are using fre

The focus of international trade policy has shifted from tariffs and licensing to convenient inves

The US has not only intensified screening and restrict

the possibility that the US may ban all high-tech product exports to China in the future,” Li said.

“The new move will be a major step to strengthen controls over technological exports. It is necessary for China to set up export control

Students to be vital cogs in travel sectordents born betwe

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.
