An auto show ignites a city, and 2023 Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition continues Chengdu’s strength.

On September 3rd, 25 days after the end of the Chengdu Universiade, the 26th Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition also came to an end.

The wonderful hosting of the Chengdu Universiade has brought Chengdu to the world and the world to Chengdu at the same time. This year’s Chengdu Auto Show not only continues the popularity of Chengdu, but also demonstrates the strength and value of Chengdu as an engine city in western China.
The 10-day Chengdu Auto Show attracted 902,000 visitors and generated 35,028 orders, with a turnover of 6.087 billion yuan. ……
As the Chengdu Auto Show, which shoulders the important mission of driving the kinetic energy recovery of the automobile industry, boosting market confidence and promoting the expansion of domestic demand, this answer sheet is not only excellent, but also hard-core.
In the eyes of many media people, this year’s Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition represents "whether car companies can outperform the auto market in the second half of the year".
Insufficient consumer confidence and weak market; "Golden September and Silver 10" is approaching, who can seize the opportunity … … All these make the Chengdu Auto Show, which is famous for its "good effect and popularity", attract attention and feel pressure.
On August 3rd, at noon on the closing day of the auto show, looking at the audience who are still in an endless stream and the sales staff who are still busy at the booth, Ms. Yang Huilan, the general manager of Chengdu Century City Exhibition Group Exhibition Company, the organizer of the auto show, was somewhat emotional: "I really appreciate our consumers and exhibitors. They have contributed a lot to the success of Chengdu Auto Show today."
The international style is full and the fireworks are full. This is the most commented on Chengdu International Auto Show in recent years. It can not only achieve scale, grade and high level, but also achieve popularity, sell cars and achieve good results. To be honest, this kind of auto show is welcome to all aspects.

At this year’s auto show, BYD occupied almost the entire Hall 3 with four brands: Wangwang, Tengshi, BYD and Equation Leopard, which made many people think that BYD moved its home from Shenzhen to Chengdu. "Chengdu Auto Show not only has great influence, but also has great purchasing power." Zhao Changjiang, general manager of Tengshi Automobile, said: "In fact, our investment in Chengdu Auto Show has never been spared."
"In Geely’s eyes, Chengdu Auto Show has always been a battleground." On August 25th, Lin Jie, senior vice president of Geely Automobile Group, who brought the highly anticipated Galaxy L6 to the Chengdu Auto Show, told the media that "it can not only display the brand and realize sales, but also radiate the whole western region."
For the 26-year-old Chengdu International Auto Show, this is undoubtedly the first auto show that can best reflect the "hundred struggles, the first to struggle": 129 domestic and foreign brands participated in the exhibition, more than 1,600 exhibition cars were unveiled, 68 new cars were launched, and 3,412 media reported.

On the one hand, BYD, Ideality, Weilai, Tucki and many other new energy vehicle companies show their muscles, and on the other hand, Volkswagen, Toyota, Honda, Buick, Ford and other traditional joint venture brands strive to break through; Independent brands are collectively arrogant, and multinational car companies seek common transformation; Luxury brands are in full bloom, and hard-core cross-country is competing for beauty; New models are on the market, and the price war is filled with smoke. ……
All this, of course, is not only due to the popularity of the automobile consumption market in Chengdu, but also the engine position of the western city of China represented by Chengdu.
Just as Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the National Passenger Car Market Information Association, said a few years ago: "As far as the whole country is concerned, Chengdu Auto Show is undoubtedly the most regional auto show. The western auto market depends not only on Chengdu, but also on the national auto market."
Chengdu Auto Show is a window and a bridge.
On August 25th, the first day of the auto show, Shi Xiaolin, deputy secretary of Sichuan Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China and secretary of Chengdu Municipal Committee, visited the exhibition site in person, and had a discussion with the representatives of the participating industries, and listened carefully to their opinions and suggestions on the auto show and the development of Chengdu’s auto industry. Shi Xiaolin pointed out that Chengdu Auto Show should not only be an important window to display new automobile products, new technologies and the image of Chengdu, but also a bridge to promote industrial development and enhance exchanges and cooperation.
The 26-year-old Chengdu Auto Show has become the city card of Chengdu, which is inseparable from the strategic planning and foresight of the Chengdu Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government. At the World Cultural City Conference held in Chengdu in 2018, Chengdu formally put forward the idea of building "three cities and three capitals", among which "building an international convention and exhibition capital with high quality" was impressively listed.
As one of the most important exhibitions in the "Exhibition Capital" every year, every Chengdu Auto Show can be described as the general mobilization of the whole city: from the municipal government, Tianfu New District to the Expo Bureau, the Public Security Bureau, and the Transportation Bureau ….. In order to run the auto show well, it can be described as a game of chess, and all the people are United.

Take this year’s auto show as an example, in addition to the "convenience and benefit enterprises" team sent by Chengdu traffic police stationed at the auto show, a mobile service car was set up; There is also a civilian auxiliary police organized by Chengdu Tianfu Public Security Traffic Police Detachment, which provides a series of convenience services for exhibitors and visitors.
As a result of concerted efforts, Chengdu Auto Show has not only consolidated its position in the domestic A-class auto show, but also brought Chengdu’s automobile industry to the fast lane of development in the past ten years. More than ten leading automobile manufacturing enterprises such as FAW-Volkswagen, Volvo, Geely, Polar Star, Dongfeng Peugeot and Dongfeng Citroen have set up factories in Chengdu.
On June 25th this year, the Office of the Leading Group for Building a Powerful Manufacturing City in Chengdu made it clear in the Development Plan of New Energy and Intelligent Networked Automobile Industry in Chengdu (2023-2030) that by 2025, the overall scale of Chengdu’s automobile industry will strive to reach 300 billion yuan, and the overall local output of automobiles will reach 1 million (excluding the output of foreign molecular companies).
No wonder some people say that the growth of Chengdu Auto Show is the growth of Chengdu’s automobile industry, which not only promotes Chengdu’s automobile consumption and promotes the popularization of automobile culture, but also contributes to the development of Chengdu’s automobile industry.
On August 23rd, "China Communications Broadcasting" took an article "Hefei, Need a" Chengdu Auto Show "! ",gave a high evaluation of Chengdu Auto Show. The article wrote: "On the one hand, new cars are competing for the top, and on the other hand, exhibitions are promoted by exhibitions, and exhibitions are promoted by sales; On the one hand, the organizers regard the auto show as a festival, and on the other hand, the exhibitors regard the auto show as the Spring Festival Evening. The opening of the auto show, not only the industry is agitated, the city is jubilant, and countless citizens and families are enjoying it … This is the grand occasion of the Chengdu Auto Show and our expectation for the Hefei Auto Show. "

This year, many viewers have found that Chengdu Auto Show is not only willing to give up but also looks better than in previous years, and the exhibition experience is better. Ten-day auto show, a car purchase prize of 49,999 yuan every day "No history ‘ Money ’ Example "; The free bus shuttle bus that beckons and stops, the luggage storage office that you can see when you enter the room, and the elegant and eye-catching consulting service office are very considerate. The venue planning is scientific and reasonable, the brand distribution is tight and orderly, the supporting services are meticulous, and the atmosphere creation pays more attention to taste and details.
"China Auto Pioneer Forum" is the highlight of every Chengdu Auto Show. This year’s forum’s hot theme, high specifications and large scenes have made many participants feel refreshed.
Liu Xiaoyong, one of the organizers of the forum and the president of Auto Watch magazine, is an old friend of Chengdu Auto Show, and he is well aware of the development and changes of Chengdu Auto Show. "The scale of many exhibitions has declined this year, and the scale of the Chengdu Auto Show has not declined, which is very rare. But what is even more gratifying is the change of this year’s Chengdu Auto Show, which is more and more emphasis on grades and humanities. It is not easy for an exhibition that is known for its sales. "
"In fact, seeking change has always been the normal state of Chengdu Auto Show." Yang Huilan said: "From 1998 to today, Chengdu Auto Show has changed its location, from local exhibitions to A-class auto shows, from industry events to urban festivals, all of which are the result of change."
35,028 orders, with a turnover of 6.087 billion yuan. At the moment when the overall consumption is weak and the market is seriously involuted, this answer sheet handed over by Chengdu Auto Show this year is precious. It shows us that Chengdu, as a gold medal car market, is still active in purchasing power and consumption power, and its people are still optimistic about the future and calm about the present. It also shows us that Chengdu, which is taking building an international consumer-oriented central city as its future development direction, is making great strides.

What is even more rare is that in just one month, from international competitions to international auto shows in Chengdu, one is to make youth with sports, and the other is to control the future with wisdom and electricity, each of which shines and sets each other off. If the success of the Chengdu Universiade has shown the world the myriad weather of China in the new era, then the success of the Chengdu Auto Show has made the world understand China in the new era full of hope.
On the evening of September 3rd, Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition released the news of the closing of the 26th Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition with the theme of "Highlighting the New Paradigm of Vitality and Accelerating to Lead the New Future". Many exhibitors and consumers left messages: "Looking forward to the 2024 Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition" and "Meet again in 2024" … …
An auto show ignites a city, and the legend of auto show in Chengdu will continue to be written. (Qin Tongzi)

Wang Leixi’s 2022 Lantern Festival performance "Selling Tangyuan" was well received by the audience.

 

It is reported that the Lantern Festival Gala in 2022, just past the Central Radio and Television Station, came to a successful conclusion. This gala combines traditional cultural concepts with high technology, pushing the visual appreciation of the gala and the enthusiasm of the audience to a climax, presenting an ultimate double enjoyment of hearing and vision.

The creative program "Selling Tangyuan" uses a combination of symphony and crosstalk to interpret the classic melody and evoke the familiar taste of Yuanxiao in the audience’s heart. Singer Wang Leixi, as the only female crosstalk performer, is a striking presence in this program. Many people use allegro or "Go online! Huacai Teenager knows her, and it’s very surprising to perform cross talk on CCTV again this time. Wang Leixi appeared at the Lantern Festival party this time, and collaborated with BiBi Zhou, Zheng Yunlong, Jing Li and other famous artists to adapt the version of Selling Tangyuan. Her performance was remarkable.

In the cross talk actor industry with men as the main force, it is rare to see female cross talk actors who make people shine at the moment. In recent years, it is Jia Ling that has made great achievements. Whether Wang Leixi’s appearance can fill this gap, the audience will wait and see. From Selling Tangyuan, we can see her mastery of the performance rhythm and her ease on the stage, which is due to her accumulated stage experience.

Wang Leixi has never been confined to a certain field. She has the courage to try new things, from the variety show to the allegro teacher. Cross-border has become commonplace for her.

Wang Leixi, a treasure girl born in 1995, has personally supported traditional culture and created many well-known songs. I hope she will bring us more surprise works in the future.

This "America first", everyone is watching a joke.

Only nine months after taking office, Kevin McCarthy, the third person in the United States and Speaker of the House of Representatives, was removed from office on October 3. CNN said that this is the first time in American history that the Speaker of the House of Representatives was voted out.

Not only did he create history when he left office, but McCarthy also staged an embarrassing farce of "once in a hundred years" when he took office at the beginning of this year-after four days and 15 rounds of voting, he barely became the speaker, which was the longest voting in the House of Representatives election for more than 160 years since the Civil War.

Unexpectedly, McCarthy was kicked off the speaker’s position before his ass got hot after he got to the top.

According to Lv Xiang, an expert on American issues at China Academy of Social Sciences, McCarthy’s dismissal was expected. In the initial campaign tug-of-war, McCarthy agreed to lower the threshold of the "recall motion" in order to win the votes of ultra-conservatives in the party, which in itself laid the groundwork for his stepping down. "The end has long been doomed, but I was not sure when this day would come."

Feeling of being dismissed"great"

Judging from the voting results of the recall motion, there were 216 votes in favor and 210 votes against it. In the House of Representatives, which has a majority of Republican seats, McCarthy obviously lost some of his party support votes, that is, some Republican lawmakers "defected" and voted in favor of the recall of McCarthy together with Democratic lawmakers.

·The picture of the US House of Representatives voting on the resolution to recall Republican Speaker McCarthy.

Why was McCarthy "abandoned" by the Republican Party? The direct cause is the parliamentary dispute over the appropriation bill.

The fiscal year 2023 in the United States ended on September 30, and the Democratic Party and the Republican Party had been fighting endlessly over the federal budget appropriation bill for the new fiscal year. Just at the last moment when the government was on the verge of running out of money and preparing to close the door, the short-term appropriation bill was passed on the evening of September 30, local time, temporarily avoiding the crisis of the US federal government’s lockout again.

In fact, the Republican Party originally wanted to give the Democratic US President Biden a "color" look through the appropriation bill.

Ultra-conservatives in the Republican Party have been pressuring McCarthy not to support any provisional appropriation bill, and even threatened to let McCarthy step down once the provisional appropriation bill was passed.

As a result, the Republicans designed it for a long time, and McCarthy broke the chain at the last minute and compromised with the Democratic Party, so that the appropriation bill was passed.

The appropriation bill was passed, and McCarthy was regarded as "meritorious" on the Democratic side, but it also angered the Republican Party and became the fuse for his dismissal.

After being dismissed, McCarthy held a press conference and said that he felt "great" and that he would not run for the Speaker again.

Some media analysts said that McCarthy’s abandonment of re-election is actually saving face. Although he can run for election again immediately according to the law, since he was elected as the speaker after a full 15 rounds of voting last time, it will definitely not be easy if he runs for election again.

·This is McCarthy, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Republican Party, filmed in Washington, DC on September 29th. Xinhua news agency

During his nine months as Speaker of the House of Representatives, McCarthy was repeatedly challenged by ultra-conservatives in the Republican Party.

Earlier this year, the United States almost defaulted on its debt. McCarthy and Biden reached a compromise in May, and Congress passed a bill on the government debt ceiling. At that time, the ultra-conservatives in the Republican Party thought that McCarthy had not pushed hard enough to cut government spending, and once considered proposing a motion to remove McCarthy.

It’s not that McCarthy hasn’t thought about "saving himself". In September this year, on the issue of impeaching Biden, McCarthy handed out an "olive branch" to the radicals in the Republican Party.

On September 12, McCarthy said in Congress that the investigation of Biden’s family members by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee found that Biden’s family had a "culture of corruption" and there might be "abuse of power, obstruction of justice and corruption", so "I announced today that the House Committee will formally launch an impeachment investigation against President Biden".

According to US media reports, McCarthy announced an impeachment investigation against Biden, to some extent to meet the requirements of the far-right conservatives in the Republican Party in the House of Representatives. Some conservative Republican lawmakers said that the impeachment investigation against Biden was only a "small step" and "we should speed up the pace of action". If McCarthy moves slowly, measures may be taken to "step down".

McCarthy, who was threatened to "step down" without a word, was completely caught.

"An actor with poor acting skills"

We can "unite" Republicans by impeaching Biden, or compromise with Democrats for the benefit. It is precisely because of this characteristic of have it both ways that McCarthy is described by the American media as "the best congressional chameleon".

"McCarthy is a typical opportunist. Generally speaking, he is a Republican, but staunch Republicans don’t trust him. " Lu Xiang said that after McCarthy took office, he tried to get support from many parties, but the Republican party could not understand it. He would also play the idea of the Democratic Party and do something to please it. But in the end, McCarthy, who used to be a "fence-sitter" and "fence-sitter", only ended up being dismissed.

In the American political arena where money is paramount, McCarthy’s history can be described as "another way". He can sit in the "third place" with "excellent interpersonal skills".

In 1965, McCarthy was born into an ordinary family in California. His father was a fireman and his grandfather owned a small ranch. As an adult, McCarthy worked as a worker and opened a sandwich shop. In 1987, 22-year-old McCarthy sold the store and used the money to study at California State University.

During his college years, McCarthy met the "Bole" who changed his fate, then Republican Congressman Bill Thomas. McCarthy followed Thomas into the Republican Party and grew from an intern to a long-term congressman around Thomas.

In 2002, 37-year-old McCarthy was elected to the California House of Representatives. In 2007, he entered the Congress to take over the position of Representative Thomas, and inherited his political legacy.

·McCarthy.

Since he entered Congress, McCarthy has aimed at the throne of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He brought his "interpersonal skills" into full play.

For example, McCarthy can name all members’ families and even know the birthdays of members’ children. He often appears in non-work places such as the National Assembly Gym, creating opportunities to "bump into" colleagues and talk with them. He can always say the right words at the right time to make the other person feel happy.

However, McCarthy, although he got along well in Congress, was not loved. An insider working in the House of Representatives once said to the American media: Everyone knows this sentence-McCarthy really cares only about himself.

In 2013, the American drama "House of Cards" started shooting, and kevinspacey fowler, the leading actor, found McCarthy to learn from the scriptures. McCarthy later admitted that he had taken Spacey to "experience life" in Congress. Spacey concluded: "The politicians on Capitol Hill are all bad actors."

·Stills of House of Cards.

A "failed country"

This time, it was Matt Gates, a Republican Congressman from Florida, who proposed to recall McCarthy.

Gates has a long history of not liking McCarthy.

In January this year, when McCarthy sprinted for the position of Speaker, Gates was the biggest obstacle.

After the mid-term elections, the Republican Party won 222 seats and successfully controlled the House of Representatives. As the Republican leader of the House of Representatives, McCarthy should have no suspense in taking over as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

However, the original "going through the motions" vote was deadlocked for four days, and McCarthy did not become the speaker until the fifteenth round of voting.

·McCarthy was still not elected after the eleventh round of voting.

In the fourteenth round of voting, at the critical moment when McCarthy was only one vote away from being elected, Gates once again cast an abstention vote.

Seeing Gates "spoiling the game", McCarthy turned pale with anger and got up and went to him to persuade him to change his position. But gates didn’t give in at all, and he held out his finger and choked with McCarthy.

·On January 6, 2023, on the fourth day of the election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, McCarthy and Gates quarreled.

In the end, McCarthy was barely elected by one vote, which was behind the compromise he made by abandoning his dignity. One of the compromises is that McCarthy agreed to lower the threshold for initiating a motion to recall the Speaker of the House of Representatives-any member of the House of Representatives can propose it, instead of the previous requirement of obtaining the support of a majority of members of one party.

These compromises were called "the devil’s deal" by the Washington Post. Democratic Rep. McGovern sarcastically said: "McCarthy has given up everything, including dignity."

Wearing shackles, McCarthy became the speaker. I just didn’t expect that the speaker who was elected after 15 rounds of voting was dismissed after one round of voting.

It is worth mentioning that Gates, who constantly advocates putting "shackles" on McCarthy, comes from the far-right liberal party group.

This is a group composed of far-right Republican lawmakers who advocate conservatism and small government, and support budget cuts and decentralization of the House of Representatives. Of the 20 Republican lawmakers who opposed McCarthy’s election as Speaker, 19 were closely related to the Liberal Party. Of the eight Republicans who voted to remove McCarthy, six were members of the Liberal Party.

The number of liberal party members is not large, but the victory lies in unity. If more than 80% of the internal members are against a proposal, others will choose to follow the ticket.

·Before McCarthy took office on January 7th this year, Matt Gates made a speech against McCarthy on January 6th local time.

Lu Xiang believes that the Liberal Party actually inherited the "mantle" of the Tea Party.

Previously, a landmark event of Republican infighting occurred in 2015. At that time, the Tea Party forced john boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives and a Republican, to resign, and the situation was exactly the same as this one.

"The liberal party group is like a small group in the majority party, and it can also be understood as a small shareholder in a large company, and it is a decisive minority shareholder." Lu Xiang believes that the small party groups differentiated within the majority party can achieve the role of "the majority obeys the minority"-although you can’t do anything big, you can’t do anything.

It is difficult for the two parties to cooperate with each other, the internal struggles among political parties continue, and minority groups hold the decision-making power … The American media described the Republicans in the House of Representatives as a "failed country".

Before the new speaker took office, McCarthy temporarily appointed his confidant Patrick McHenry as the interim speaker. The BBC believes that whoever succeeds McCarthy will face a broken mess.

How to deal with the mess for the time being, mchenry’s new official took office, and issued a written order, demanding that former US House Speaker nancy pelosi vacate the office of the Capitol immediately, and that the office should return to the right path, "for the use of the Speaker only".
