Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Monday that shared interests far outweigh differences in economic and trade relations between China and the United States.

"As each other's largest trading partner Authentic Nate Thompson Jersey , the main trend of China-U.S. economic and trade ties is cooperation," Li said while meeting with visiting U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.


China will work with the United States in the spirit of mutual respect and win-win cooperation to expand cargo and service trade and resolve frictions and differences through dialogue and consultation, Li said.


The premier said China's market will be more and more open and its business environment will get better and better. "We welcome more U.S. enterprises to invest in China Authentic Zack Smith Jersey ," he said.


"China hopes the United States gives fair treatment to Chinese investment and relaxes restrictions on exports of high-tech products to China so that bilateral economic and trade ties grow in dynamic equilibrium," the premier said.


A sound and stable China-U.S. relationship serves the interests of the two countries and meets the aspirations of the international community, Li said.


Ross said U.S.-China relations are getting closer and enjoy a bright future Authentic Tom Pyatt Jersey , adding that the United States welcomes China's steady and rapid opening-up and will improve communication with China for greater trade and investment partnership as well as people-to-people exchanges.


  RIO DE JANEIRO, April 10 (Xinhua) -- Organizers and athletes hailed Sunday's Rio 2016 Olympic marathon test event as a success despite hot autumn conditions.


  Rio 2016 venue management director Gustavo Nascimento said the 42km course, which will start and finish at the 700m-long Sambadrome, could see slight alterations before the event on August 21.


  "Maybe there will be some minor changes to the route but in general it (the test event) went very well," Nascimento said.


  He added that the final route would be discussed in the coming week and confirmed in July.


  Marcio Barreto da Silva was first to cross the finish line in a field of 16 participants, recording a time of 2 hours, 21 minutes and 22 seconds.


  "The route is well marked and the organization was perfect," Da Silva said. "What had the biggest impact was the heat. It was a great thrill to be part of test for an event that will feature the world's best athletes," he added.

Buses
The bus is still in Turkey the main form of transportation. Every town, every area in Turkey can be reached from the bus station, the *otogar*. Otogar is a word combination Authentic Bobby Ryan Jersey , ("Oto" means car, "Gar" comes from the French word Gare for station). Go there and you'll find all bus companies - tickets can be obtained right here. A confusing picture sometimes as there are so many agencies - so do decide on a serious company. And specially in summertime do book in time.

All buses have good comfort and air conditioning and a stop on the way for having a meal is always arranged

The Dolmus (dolmush) is typically Turkish and can be found everywhere. These are mainly minibuses traveling relatively short distances. A dolmus usually waits and starts in the bus station () until it is full and then leaves. You can board a dolmus anywhere on its route by signaling it to stop for you. Similarly you can get off at a convenient point anywhere along the route. The destination of the dolmus is posted in the windscreen. This kind of public transport is cheap and efficient and works very well all over Turkey.

Money Matters
Turkish currency is the Lira (TL) and the inflation rate still is very high (between 70 and 80%.) So prices in this country change quickly. Don't change at home, change in Turkey! The rate is a lot better here. Unless you've just won the lottery! Check your money and receipt before leaving the bank Get used to the color and denomination of the Turkish Lira (TL) before going out to spend them. Spread them out somewhere and have a good look (and a small gloat at the millions!). Calculate an exchange rate to fit each note Authentic Kyle Turris Jersey , and round up or down so you can remember it. E.g.: 1,000,000TL (1 Million) is about half a pound - something like that. When you buy something Authentic Chris Wideman Jersey , make sure you understand how many TL are needed, shopkeepers often write the sum down to avoid confusion, and count your notes out carefully. Anyhow many of the restaurant owners or shop keepers are used to western currencies.

January 1st - New Year's Day
April 23rd - Children's Day

Religious holidays
In Islam there are two big religious festivals. During the fasting time (Ramadan or Ramadan) Authentic Dion Phaneuf Jersey , Muslims are forbidden to eat, drink, smoke or have sexual intercourse between sunrise and sunset. Armada marks God's revelation of the Koran Authentic Mike Condon Jersey , Islam's holy book to the Prophet Mohammed. This 4 weeks fasting time is followed by the Sugar Fete (Seker Bayrami), when people visit each other and offering sweets.

About two months later Kurban Bayrami is celebrated - 'The Festival of Sacrifice', which is Turkey's longest religious and also secular holiday. This festival commemorates Abraham's near sacrifice of his son Isaac (Koran Rura 37).

Following Islamic tradition Cheap Mike Hoffman Jersey , several million rams are sacrificed in Turkey every year. Every devout household who can effort it buys one. After morning.
