HOHHOT Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 , June 28 (Xinhua) — Having worked in Ordos in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region for nearly six years, Zhang Xin, a clerk at a property management company, is relieved to have bought a new apartment last year.
“The price we bought at was 5,900 yuan (860 U.S. dollars) per square meter. Today it is worth almost 9,000 yuan per square meter,” Zhang’s father Zhang Wenquan said.
Zhang is a native of Qiqihar City Nike Air Max 2018 Ireland , in neighboring Heilongjiang Province. Her new apartment is well located, next to a middle school in Kangbashi District, once labelled a “ghost town” by international press.
With an area of some 30 square kilometers, Kangbashi was a futuristic town built on a wasteland in Ordos. Work began in 2004. Facilities of the town were widely put into use only in 2009.
At the very beginning, the population of Kangbashi was no more than 30,000. The town was notorious for the pointless construction and the resulting housing bubble.
The city government came up with a series of measures, including curbing new building work Nike Air Max 90 Mens Ireland , improving local schools and health facilities, beautifying the environment and, perhaps most crucially, attracting businesses and investment to encourage people to settle down.
It worked. Kangbashi is now an ideal tourist destination and a viable place to invest. At the end of May, there were more than 4,750 businesses in the district and a permanent population of 153,000.
The housing prices in Kangbashi have been rising since the end of 2015 Nike Air Max 90 Mens , said Liu Hai’e, an official with the local housing authority. The average price per square meter has increased from 4,200 yuan to around 6,500 yuan.
In 2016, a total of 2,089 apartments were sold and more than 1,700 had been sold by June 20 this year.
With green space coverage reaching 42 percent Nike Air Max 90 Womens Ireland , Kangbashi was designated as both a garden city and a forest city in 2016.
The cool climate in summer and the nearby prairies have brought the tourists in and along with a number of retirees, attracting even more people from other places to move in.
Wang Yongcheng, 74, a retired cadre from Hangjin Banner of Ordos, is among them. He bought a 134-square-meter apartment in Kangbashi two years ago.
“Kangbashi is like a big park with green space everywhere,” Wang said, well satisfied with a retirement replete with recreational alternatives.
Zhang Wenquan echoes his views and told Xinhua he is very pleased to live in Kangbashi Nike Air Max 90 Womens , breathing fresh air and enjoying the green and pleasant environment, good security and convenient public services.
“My brother, who is in his 80s, at first did not believe what I told him about Kangbashi until he visited us,” Zhang said.
Liu Hai’e said more than 60 percent of new house buyers over the past two years in the district have come from neighboring areas.
Over 40,000 apartments have been built since construction started in 2004. Most have now been sold and no more than 500 remain available.

DETROIT, the United States, June 20 (Xinhua) — Alibaba founder Jack Ma said Tuesday the Chinese e-commerce giant is confident that it will help support one million small U.S. businesses to sell to China and the rest of Asia through its network in the next five years.
“If we can help one million small businesses online and each business can create one job, we can create one million jobs,” said Ma, who added that “we are pretty knowledgeable on that.”
Ma made the remarks at Gateway’ 17, a conference held by Alibaba in Detroit. The conference Nike Air Max 90 Cheap , which is held on June 20-21, features presentations and breakout sessions aimed at educating attendees on what and how to sell to China, especially through e-commerce platforms, so that they can grow their businesses and go global.
Ma said Alibaba has been supporting small U.S. businesses to sell and buy online in the past 18 years. In California alone, the company has already helped create more than 20,000 jobs, according to Ma.
“At the time we had little experience Cheap Nike Air Vapormax , now we have a lot of experience,” he said.
The conference marks Alibaba’s official first step to introduce opportunities in China to U.S. small and medium-sized enterprises.
Ma said the company’s business strategy in the United States differs from that of Amazon or eBay.
“Our model is to bring American small businesses and farmers to China, (and) to Asia. Because we have a lot of middle class Chinese who need high quality products,” he said.
Asked about his opinion on globalisation, Ma said he is a firm believer of it as well as free trade.
“In the past 20 years, globalisation and free trade were designed for big companies and developed countries. In the next 30 years, we should make globalisation more inclusive to support small businesses Nike Air Vapormax Ireland , young people and farmers,” said Ma.
