As the story goes, once there was a cowherd, Niulang, who lived with his elder brother and sister-in-law. But she disl
iked and abused him, and the boy was forced to leave home with only an old cow for company.亚博国际娱乐平台唯一首选龙凤419女神会所
The cow, however, was a former god who had violated imperial rules and was sent to earth in bovine form.
One day the cow led Niulang to a lake where fairies took a bath on ear

The two fell in love at first sight and were soon married. They had a son and dau

Yet in the eyes of the Jade Emperor, the Supreme Deity in Taoism, marriage betwee亚博国际娱乐平台唯一首选龙凤419女神会所

Niulang grew desperate when he discovered Zhinu had been taken back to heave

He adds that if things like the somewhat vague portrayal of some a

we are declining less than the market. Instead we are increasing our market share, so it’s still quite a sizable

What’s your take on the current global economic uncertainty especially in US-China trade? How will this affect your company’s business?
亚博国际娱乐平台唯一首选龙凤419女神会所The world has become a much more complex place to do business. Although the trade friction hasn’t had a real impact on us
yet, we have of course paid attention to the two big superpowers in the world that not only have an impact on bila
teral relationships, but also worldwide. We believe in free markets, and global market uncertainty is det亚博国际娱乐平台唯一首选龙凤419女神会所

We plan to make our exhibition space 50 percent bigger at about 300 square meters. Meanwhile, we wil
亚博国际娱乐平台唯一首选龙凤419女神会所l showcase our latest innovations, including Li-Fi to Li-Fi Generation 2, Zigbee based Hue, Wi-Fi-based
WiZ, horticulture lighting, animal lighting, 3D printing and other new applications.
Last time we talked about Li-Fia two-way, high-speed wireless technology similar to Wi-Fi, which uses light waves instead of radi
o waves to transmit data. Signify’s Li-Fi products could provide a broadband internet connection through light waves wi
thout compromising lighting quality. But it was the beginning of it. Now we can say that we have four pilots in China for Li-Fi – one
with the China Academy of Building Research, where they’re testing and improving the capacity of that technology. So, we’ve moved from prese
nting the technology to application, finding customers and developing pilots. So this is the big change from last time.
Do you have any plans especially in the Yangtze River Delta region?
We don’t only look at our investment from a geographic perspective. We have invested in research and development and China is ho

Shanghai but also in Shenzhen. With that company, we are “potentializing” it, which is increasing sales in China, but
also helping the products that company has worldwide. We believe in investment, and we’re going to invest more.
