That may soon become a reality as a Guangzhou-based company has announced it is
上海夜网品茶微信cooperating with the local government to build a low-altitude aviation transportation network for AAVs.

Constitution Day on May 3, doubts over constitutional revision have increased.
On the one hand, a large majority of the respondents said they don‘t see any upsu上海夜网

上海夜网女神会所On the other hand, when asked if Article 9 should be amended, 64 percent of the respondents
said “no”, up from 63 percent last year, while only 28 percent said “yes”, down from 32 percent last year.
And Yomiuri Shimbun’s nationwide opinion poll in July showed people are more concerne上海夜网
d about “social security matters” such as pensions than constitutional amendment. In fact, 37 perce
上海夜网女神会所nt of the respondents, the biggest group, said they vote for the party which promises to provide the best possible socia
l security for citizens, with only 7 percent saying constitutional amendment is the most important issue for them.
Moreover, apart from heeding the call of a majority of Japanese citizens, Abe and the LDP sh上海夜网
ould also take into consideration the opinions of Japan’s neighbors such as China, the Republic of Kor
上海夜网ean and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the invading Japanese troops committed many atroc
ities before and during World War II, before venturing to amend the Constitution.
If the LDP tries to amend the pacifist Constitution without resolving the historic上海夜网
上海夜网女神会所al issues with the neighboring countries and without understanding the true sentiments of Japanese citizens, it will
face opposition from the Japanese people as well as the international community.
