China's leading wine region brought into spotlight


Ningxia, Oct 26 (EFE/EPA).- Nestled in the hinterlands of north-central China, between the Yellow River and the Helan Mountains in Ningxia, lies some of the country’s most fertile soil that yields a range of rich agricultural products, from wheat and rice to sugar and grapes. Known as the ‘Oasis of the hinterland’, the area, which combines optimal altitudes with a relatively arid climate and moderate temperatures, has become a major hub of Chinese wine production, a sector that is currently booming. China ranks as the fifth largest wine consumer in the world. According to official figures, online retail sales of the wines from Ningxia increased by 22 percent year-on-year to nearly 290 million yuan ($42.2 million) in the first nine months of 2020.

Our treatment reduces pain and improves their condition so that they can live normally on their own."2. BA CHENG, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE QING DUI LONG DISTRICT SCHOOL IN LHASA:"Only Tibetan language classes are in Tibetan, the rest of the subjects are taught in Chinese except English language. When the students do not understand, sometimes the teachers explain in Tibetan to help them understand. The teachers are bilingual."3. RU SEN YEN, SHEPHERD WHO IS NOW A MANAGER OF THE SMALL HOTEL THAT HAS BEEN BUILT IN HIS HOUSE."Before the relocation I was a shepherd, when we arrived here the government offered policies to subsidize the renovation of the second floor of the house to turn it into a hotel and we took advantage of them. We set up six rooms with two beds on the second floor, 40 percent of the proceeds are for us. "4. LI WENQIONG, MAXIMUM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CENTER:"We never force students to learn any subject or to choose a profession. When they enter they can freely choose what they want to learn and then the job in which they want to be employed. That information is complete nonsense."
