Holden is positive about the future of the relationship. “Honestly, both countries need each other,” he said.

“We need to be able to sell products in China. The Chinese population is wanting the goods that we can

produce here. China also gives us a workforce in some of our industries, which makes them com

petitive globally,” said Holden, who opened Missouri’s first trade office in China during his term from 2001 to 2005.

“I think there are advantages and opportunities on both sides if we ca

He listed infrastructure, energy, education and business-to-bu

siness relationships as potential areas of cooperation between China and the US, an]

Still, the victory of the Brexit Party could prompt the Cons

servatives to choose a new leader to campaign on a “no-deal” Brexit. But

this has little or no chance of being accepted by the British parliament, which means the B

rexit stalemate will continue until there is a general election or a second referendum. In any case, the normally pr

skiing training and the number will continue to rise, with expectations of 70,000 enrolled by the end of this year, he added.

uction of winter sports venues to add more flavor to the upcoming Winter Olympics in China, he said.

festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival and Venice Film Festival.

But there is still a wide gap between the Chinese film industry and the Eu

ropean and US movie industries, be it in the art of filmmaking or in the publicity strat

egies and methods. That some Hollywood filmmakers spend nearly half of their budget on publicity and ad

vertising should give Chinese filmmakers some food for thought, especially since some Chinese movies, de
