To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re

 上海品茶微信solution screens is part of the reason why premium film screenings are welcome.

“We saw strong demand in blockbusters, not only those (from) Hollywood but also Ch

inese-language films, which are increasingly welcomed by Chinese audiences.” 上海品茶微信女神会所

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv

 上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.

“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the

reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信

ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.

 上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.

Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa

id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信

s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.

“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin

ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

A rough industry estimate from entertainment analysi

 上海品茶微信s website Dengta under online ticketing platform Taopiaopiao show

s cinema visits slumped by nearly 100 million to around 807 million in the first half of this year.

“On one hand, rising ticket prices prevent many people from visiting cinema 上海品茶微信女神会所

s, as cinemas stopped selling cheap tickets at 9.9 yuan or 19.9 yuan,” Chen said.

promoting the application of e-buses, by supporting technology innovation, improving fiscal

and taxation policies, enhancing infrastructure construction, as well as reinforcing fund supervision.

“It is estimated that in the future, China’s e-bus market will transform to a more market-driven pattern, instead of policy-driv

China is the world’s largest producer of rare earths, acco

counting for about 80 percent of global supply. However, the country’s rare-earth industry is faced with such pro

blems as rapidly decreasing inventory, inefficient production and environmental pollution.

Analysts also said that the low prices of China’s exports have failed to reflect the real value of the precious resource.

The division of labor of the global rare-earth industry should be coo

rdinated in accordance with the principle of opening-up and sharing, the NDRC said.

While the country prioritizes the domestic use of rare-earth meta

ls, it is willing to see its exports help drive the development of global industries, it said.
