Industry body calls on authorities to implement government guidelines
上海千花坊Officials at China’s leading auto industry association are calling for local authoriti
es to implement the central government’s guidelines for boosting car consumption in the wake of ve
hicle sales in the country having fallen for 13 months in a row as of the end of July.
Overall vehicle sales in the world’s biggest vehicle market stood at 1.8 million in July, falling 4.3 percent from t上海千花坊女神会所
he same month last year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
Total sales in the first seven months of this year totaled 14.13 million, down 11.4 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊
The association expects the fall to become less severe in coming m
onths because of a lower comparable base figure from the second half of last year a上海千花坊
nd because of the measures implemented to help with car consumption.
It estimated that China’s vehicle sales would drop 5 percent this year上海千花坊女神会所
from 2018 to 26.68 million vehicles. It has also trimmed its forecast for a rise in new ene
rgy vehicle sales to 1.5 million from a forecast of 1.6 million made at the start of the year.

上海千花坊fort to stabilize house prices, market expectations and market order has paid off.”
Yan noted that Pingdingshan in Henan province was the city with the biggest monthly growth
in new property prices in July, as the city’s average price for new housing grew 1.6 percent. 上海千花坊女神会所
“The housing policies were relatively loose in cities such as Pingdingshan,” he said.
“With Pingdingshan topping the list, other smaller cities also saw mild growth in
上海千花坊house prices. The local government needs to strengthen regulations in these cities.”
For pre-owned property, in July, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen all saw a growth in prices respectively by 0.4 pe
rcent, 0.4 percent and 0.7 percent compared to June. The 31 smaller cities saw similar trends as the average price r 上海千花坊女神会所
ose by 0.4 percent month-on-month, up 0.1 percentage point from the month earlier.
Yan said July was the peak season for the housing rental market. As rent 上海千花坊
went up during summer, the prices of pre-owned property tended to go up as well.
“A total of 70 cities saw an average 0.4 percent monthly growth in pre- 上海千花坊女神会所
owned property prices,” Yan said. “But the growth rate was smaller compared t
o the same period last year, thanks to the tightened regulation since May.” 上海千花坊
“The local governments have been aiming to stabilize land prices, house prices and market expectations, implementing a
long-term mechanism for real estate regulation in July to sustain the stable dev 上海千花坊女神会所

In a meeting with visiting Indian Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishank

The announcement is neither valid in relation to China nor will it change the status

Saying India’s move doesn’t conform to the agreement between Beijing a上海419论坛女神会所
