BEIJING Justin Evans Buccaneers Jersey , Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- With their tangy sauces and sachets of dried meat and vegetables, instant noodles were once the bedrock of China's convenience food, but their sales had declined drastically in recent years.


For Geng Mei, an English teacher in Beijing, munching bowls full of steaming instant noodles was a highlight of her childhood.


"Cheap and delicious, instant noodles were so popular when I was a child O. J. Howard Buccaneers Jersey ," says Geng, who is in her thirties. "But now I cannot even remember the last time I had them."


Instant noodles were invented in Japan in the 1950s, spreading quickly throughout Asia, Europe and the rest of the world. They flourished in China in the 1980s and 1990s, with noodle bowls and packets ubiquitous in snack shops and supermarkets.


In 2013, sales of instant noodles on the Chinese mainland surpassed more than 46.2 billion packets Lavonte David Buccaneers Jersey , according to the World Instant Noodles Association -- that is 1,465 packets of instant noodles opened every second.


However, by 2016 sales had dropped to just 38.5 billion packets.


Instant noodle companies are feeling the pinch. Tingyi, which makes and sells Master Kong instant noodles, had a revenue slump in its instant noodle business from 4.3 billion U.S. dollars in 2013 to 3.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. The company even had to sell its inoperative noodle and beverage factories in the city of Xi'an, northwest China Gerald McCoy Buccaneers Jersey , earlier this year.


Zhang Xin, associate professor with department of economics and finance at Tongji University, says the shrinking migrant population has damaged the industry as they were one of the largest groups of instant noodle consumers.


China's migrant population decreased for the first time in about 30 years in 2015. The economic rise of China's interior regions is luring back migrant workers from coastal cities. Skills and capital acquired in cities also help migrant workers start their own businesses in their home town.


The explosive growth of China's high-speed railway networks turns out to be unexpected enemy of the instant noodles industry.


"I ate instant noodles for breakfast, lunch and as a midnight snack during my 20-hour train trips in the past," says Tang Mingsheng, who works in the eastern Chinese city of Fuzhou.


But since 2013 Mike Evans Buccaneers Jersey , Tang's journey home at Spring Festivals is on a high-speed train that takes just six hours. There is no need for midnight instant-noodle snacking.


"Trains were once an important market for instant noodles, but railway stations are ordering less and less instant noodles these days," says Long Shuhai, an instant noodle distributor in Yunnan Province.


Instead, trains sell expensive Haagen-Dazs ice cream, imported fruits and lunch boxes Jameis Winston Buccaneers Jersey , as the instant noodle market continues to dwindle.


The rise of food delivery has also played a role in the declining fortunes of the instant noodle industry. From her office, Geng can see dozens of delivery men crowding the streets below, hurrying from office to office to drop off meals.


"Food delivery gives consumers access to quick meals of more diversified tastes," she says.


Users of food delivery services reached 295 million by the end of June, a 41.6 percent increase from the end of 2016, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.


Food delivery services have even reached high-speed trains. In mid-July Jordan Whitehead Buccaneers Jersey , 27 major railway stations across China launched a pilot on-demand food delivery service for high-speed trains passing through the stations.


"The decline of instant noodle sales shows a shift in China's consumption patterns," says Zhao Ping with the Academy of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade. "Consumers are more interested in life quality than just filling their bellies, these days."


The instant noodle industry is trying to regain its lost glory through developing more flavors. It is also upgrading products in a bid a change people's perception of instant noodles as a "low-end" product. But unlike cooking a packet of instant noodle, that is something that will not happen in an instant.




BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Asia-Pacific region is expected to continue driving world economic growth and protect free trade at a time when nations are grappling with how to manage economic globalization.


Accounting for about 60 percent of global gross domestic product, the 21-member Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) makes up nearly half of world trade and 40 percent of the population on the Earth.


The 25th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting will kick off on Thursday in Vietnam's central Da Nang city.


In a world of growing interdependence Alex Cappa Buccaneers Jersey , APEC leaders are pondering the way forward to tackle challenges to economic globalization.


Since the beginning of this year, against the backdrop of a series of Black Swan events - such as Brexit - anti-globalization sentiment and protectionism have been on the rise, frustrating attempts to lessen the divides brought by globalization.


To restore confidence, China has firmly voiced its stance that building a Free Trade Area in the Asia-Pacific is a strategic initiative critical for the long-term prosperity of the region and the world.


Economic globalization has promoted trade and brought tangible growth to the Asia-Pacific region in the past several decades, lifting tens of millions of people out of poverty and turning it into a growth engine for the whole world.


While underlining achievements of economic globalization, the international community should be aware that it may lead to a widening wealth gap if inappropriately handled.


The world should guide the direction and seek to achieve a re-balance of economic globalization in order to allow people from across the world to benefit from common development.
