Known as the Chicago of China and located alongside the Yangtze River, Wuhan, capital
of Central China’s Hubei province, has been a business hub throughout the nation’s modern history.?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦女神会所
In recent years, the city’s Hankoubei area has represented the “Wuhan model”, showing th
?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦e world how China’s inland regions have found innovative ways to develop their economies.
Since the start of the Age of Exploration in the early 15th century, global
trade has been focused on oceans, and the coastal regions in eastern China have emerged rap?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦女神会所
idly over the past century. However, the vast inland regions of China were left behind because of their geographic di
?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦sadvantages, and lack of transportation and communications channels and platforms.
This situation has been changing in recent years, as the nation is shifting its attention t
o its inland regions, to open them up and integrate them into the world economy.?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦女神会所
With the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s international trade is entering an “inland age”.

The local government of Wuhan is making efforts to build the Hankoubei area into the nation’s biggest domestic trade center.
?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦女神会所The area is located between the largest railway station in Asia, the largest airport in Central China and the largest deep-water port in Central China.
In September 2016, the Hankoubei International Commodity Trade Center was listed as a national pilot market for fore

dreds of kinds of goods from more than 20 countries and regions around the world were exhibited. More than 100 i
nternational buyers were attracted to the event, and about 40 agreements were reached.
?2019微信红包接龙群二维码乌托邦女神会所Since its opening-up in 2009, the area has aimed to become a commodity distribution center
for not only Chinese inland regions but the outside world. The Hankoubei wholesale market has gener

About 2,000 young Chinese dancers from 31 provinces across China perfor
med street dances at iconic spots in different cities, including the pagoda on Baota Mou
ntain in Yan’an, in Shaanxi province, and on the banks of Yellow River running through Lanzhou city in Northwest Ch
ina’s Gansu province, from April 25 to May 4, marking the centenary of the May Fourth Movement in China.
Launched by the China Hip-Hop Union Committee, the flash mob event showc
ases young Chinese dancers, who performed a variety of street dance styles, including popping, breaking and hip-hop.
In 2013, the China Hip-Hop Union Committee was founded by the Chinese Danc
ers Association and more than 30 subcommittees were launched nationwide.
To popularize the art form, the committee brought free street dance classes to more than 600 schools in 164 cities, esp
ecially poverty-stricken areas, attracting about 150,000 students.
It was supported by the Central Com
mittee of the Communist Youth League and the Chinese Dancers Association.
It’s so close, and yet it always seemed so far away. To get to the rur
al district just a few hundred meters away on the other side of the bay, locals used to have to ju
mp on a boat or drive about 160 kilometers－part of that journey on dusty, unsealed road.
Now anyone wanting to get from downtown Maputo
, capital of Mozambique, to Katembe, or vice versa, can do so with ease, and in a matter of min
utes, thanks to the longest twin-tower suspension bridge in Africa, that hangs over Maputo Bay.
“Mozambique had long planned to build a bridge linking the north and south of the bay, bu
t nothing came of them because of a lack of financing and technological difficulties,” said Wang Li
jun, vice-president of China Road and Bridge Corporation, which built the bridge.
