The organizations board of directors said the suspension was due to concerns from members of the group, which the Journal reported included Michael Kors. A representative from Michael Kors declined to comment.At the investor meeting, Alibaba forecast that its sales through the year ending March 2017 will rise at least 48 percent, which is the companys first financial forecast since the US Securities Exchange Commission announced it was investigating the companys accounting practices.amyhe@chinadailyusa.com0PhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsSwitzerland to open 9 new visa centers in ChinaPlanned Obama, Dalai Lama meeting protestedDisneys Shanghai park poised to lure millionsEx-security chiefs wife, son jailedMinistry: Navy ship passes strait for international navigationAdopted children arrive for a wide-ranging discovery missionChinese universities dominate new top universities in Asia rankingBuyers of online services need good sense, judges sayLargest-ever contract fraud case comes to a closeChina, Vietnam agree to stabalize the seaState Council NewsChina invalidates outdated documents to boost efficiencySpecial: Made in China 2025A couple found that their fate was tied together in a photo taken 20 years ago.HighlightsBars in Beijing install all-gender toiletsCollege students tolerate PDAsSmall Chinese brands gain big names overseas1,000-year-old agricultural practice, Chinas solution to sustainable farmingHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecial2016 legislative and political advisory sessionsMy Chengdu story…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
