China Daily (Canada) - - SHANGHAI -

Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey on city im­age con­ducted by Shang­hai Jiao Tong Univer­sity, Shang­hai came in first with a score of 8.44. This was fol­lowed by Hangzhou (8.35) of Zhe­jiang prov­ince, Beijing (8.13) and Xi­a­men (8.13) of Fu­jian prov­ince.

The sur­vey, which polled a to­tal of 3,600 peo­ple na­tion­wide, was de­signed to de­ter­mine the im­age of 36 Chi­nese cities based on fac­tors such as ecol­ogy, econ­omy, cul­ture, gov­ern­ment, res­i­dents and liv­ing con­di­tion. The sur­vey also showed that Shang­hai was re­garded as the best in terms of en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, in­fra­struc­ture con­struc­tion, eco­nomic com­pet­i­tive­ness, in­vest­ment des­ti­na­tion and work­ing con­di­tions.

Shang­hai Jahwa United Co Ltd on Dec 21 signed a strate­gic agree­ment with Tmall, China’s largest busi­ness-to-cus­tomer mar­ket­place owned by e-commerce gi­ant Alibaba, re­ported the of­fi­cial web­site of China Se­cu­ri­ties Jour­nal.

The deal be­tween the Shang­hai-listed per­sonal care and cos­met­ics man­u­fac­turer and Tmall will ex­pand their co­op­er­a­tion in on­line re­tail, prod­uct re­search, de­vel­op­ment and in­no­va­tion, big data ap­pli­ca­tion, net­work and tech­no­log­i­cal projects and lo­gis­tics. The two com­pa­nies be­gan to fur­ther their part­ner­ship in the first half of 2015 and sales rev­enues of Shang­hai Jahwa on Tmall had soared 300 per­cent to ex­ceed 100 mil­lion yuan ($15.4 mil­lion) dur­ing the Sin­gle’s Day sales spree in China on Nov 11.
