PARIS ugg fille taille 23 , Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- France would accelerate its gross domestic product (GDP) by 1.1 percent this year above a previous government forecast of 1 percent, French President Francois Hollande announced on Monday.

Dogged by growing critics on poor results to expanding growth of the eurozone's second largest power, Hollande stressed "France is going better" with the country's national wealth growth set at 1.1 percent in 2015.

"It's higher than last year, (but) not enough because the link between jobs and growth is direct. If we do not have growth, we will not have more jobs and lower unemployment," he said, noting the Socialists's objective to put economic recovery back on track.

Lagging behind its European neighbors bottes ugg fille pas cher , France has "to take steps to support building sector and public works activities" to muscle its economic performance and stop job losses in the two businesses, the Socialist leader told RTL radio in an interview.

However, France "prepared the future with digital and energy transition," Hollande said.

In 2014, French growth was at 0.4 percent.

HANGZHOUNANNING, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- When Ian Hamlinton, 47 ugg bebe taille 20 , an architect from South Africa, visited a village in south China in 2009, he was fascinated by centuries-old houses and decided to stay.

Hamlinton said when he first saw the old houses in Jiuxian Village, Yangshuo county of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, they were in a dire state, but Hamlinton described the houses as "being amazing".

Jiuxian, dating back about 1 bottes ugg bebe pas cher ,400 years, is one of the poorest villages in Yangshuo. Many old houses have been left in a bad state of repair as many owners lack funds or skills, and the buildings are not old enough to be eligible for government-funded protection.

Hamlinton rented two rundown houses, built more than 150 years ago, on a 20-year lease for 120,000 yuan (18,000 U.S. dollars) from a local villager. He turned them into a village inn after renovation.

The villagers thought Hamlinton was crazy , because nobody would spend so much money renting and renovating a dilapidated house.

Hamlinton was not annoyed.

The village inn opened to the public after one year of renovation work to preserve the main house structure and many of the original features.

Hamlinton's success has attracted other outsiders to rent and renovate houses in Jiuxian.

Hamlinton said this shows that more and more people realize the value of these old houses, which can be better preserved after renovation.

The renovation wave has resulted in a boom for tourism in Jiuxian. Many visitors come to local homestays to experience authentic culture.

The villagers also benefit from the increasing number of visitors. They earn a higher annual income by renting out their houses, offering bicycle or e-bike rental services and working in these inns, said Hamlinton.

Hamlinton said the old houses should be preserved well and people should not forget old history and culture, he said.

Figures show no historic houses have been demolished in Jiuxian since 2010.

Out-of-towners who come to renovate and preserve old houses that are not classed as "cultural relics," but nonetheless have historical value, will bring new life to these old villages ugg femme pas cher , said He Wei, an official with the Architectural Society of China.

CHANGSHA, China, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- The used-to-be Asian powerhouse China men's basketball team faces a bitter challenge here in the coming fortnight, that is to regain the Asian title and to get direct access to next year's Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

After losing the Asian title in 2009 and 2013, China failed to make into the 2010 World Championship and the 2014 World Cup. But unlike the FIBA Basketball World Cup, known as the FIBA World Championship between 1950 and 2010 ugg australia pas cher , China has never missed any Summer Olympic Games in men's basketball since 1984 in Los Angeles.

Though the silver and bronze medalists here still have chance to reach the Olympics, it seems like a "Mission Impossible" for China to beat European nemesis such like France and Serbia in the Olympic qualifying tournament

After finishing fifth in Manila, 2013 and also fifth in Incheon Asian Games, China needs the Asian Championship victory.

However, the facts of playing at home and parading one of the deepest rosters in the tournament can not be the assurance for victory as the host hardly had tough competition in preparation although they started very early.

Yi Jianlian, who will turn 28 later this year, is still China's star player. The former NBA player bottes ugg soldes , who was slowed down by injury in 2013, needs to prove that he is still among the best big men in Asia.

Wang Zhelin, Li Muhao and 19-year-old Zhou Qi will join Yi to make up the new generation of the "Walking Great Wall".

Veterans Li Wei and Zhou Peng's return could not cover a fact that coach Gong Luming's most wards will be playing in Asian Championship for the first time, which means their relative inexperience may not produce efficiency and consistency.

China will play against Jordan, South Korea and Singapore in Group C. Jordan, who was edged out by China by one point in the 2011 final, boasts naturalized Alex Legion who will pair up with playmaker Sam Daghlas. But the absence of promising young center Ahamd Al-Dwairi means that veteran Zaid Addas will carry more responsibility.

The South Koreans started their training camp on July 20th bottes ugg pas cher , which was quite late because their national federation had to find a new coach after Yoo Jae-Hak stepped down.

Ha Seung-Jin, Yoon Ho-Young and star guard Kim Sun-Hyung were cut due to injury. But fans now are having high expectations on naturalized forward Moon Tae-Young, who was named 2015 All-Star Game MVP of KBL. As always, the South Korea team is made of speed, shooting and team defense and always a serious contender for .
