Gavin Guo, international partner of Kewei, said that they had submitted an application for the joint operation to the Shang

上海夜网hai Municipal Bureau of Justice earlier this year and it took them three months to get the green light.

According to Guo, the joint operation of law firms is different from a joint ven

ture and does not include equity options. The two law firms are still independent e上海夜网女神会所

ntities but share administrative resources and provide one-stop legal services to clients.

Such joint operation models are attractive for multinational companies with operat上海夜网

ions in China and outbound Chinese companies, said Guo. Before this, companies need to go to a foreign la

上海夜网女神会所w firm and a Chinese law firm separately for legal services. This can be avoided as communication with both the l

aw firms can be completed in the same office and will incur only a single charge, he said.上海夜网

“Given the current global economic and political uncertainties and trade friction, governments are tightening their scru

上海夜网tiny and regulation in areas like foreign direct investment. The joint operation model will play a big role in te

rms of transaction habits, disputes resolution and even company strategies,” he said.

The first joint operation was set up by the Chicago-headquartered Baker McKenzie and Beijing Fenxun Partners in April 201上海夜网女神会所

Disposable usage dro上海夜网o trash sorting rule

Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis

上海夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.

According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon上海夜网女神会所

request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).

At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number

of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.

上海夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc

ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.

“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre上海夜网

e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.

Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc

上海夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.

Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu

lk-sized ones by 2021 in order to reduce plastic waste. The move will affect its entire hotel estate of 843,000 guest rooms.上海夜网

Conflict also disrupts growth. Although many conflic

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio

s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so

urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.

But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th
