HELSINKI, July 5 (Xinhua) -- A court in Tampere, central southern Finland, on Tuesday authorized a continuation of detention of six Cubans suspected of aggravated rape.

Two of the original eight detainees had been released by the police earlier and were no longer suspects. The suspects were players in the national volleyball team of Cuba attending the world volleyball league tournament in Tampere.

The detainees, aged 19-27 years, denied the charges in a closed-door hearing.

Finnish media did not publish names of suspects, though the Cuban Volleyball Federation on Tuesday did.

The Federation condemned their behavior but stated that the involvement of each player in the alleged crime was not known yet, newspaper Helsingin Sanomat reported.

The Cuban federation said the alleged deeds are totally alien to the "discipline, honor and respect" that has prevailed in Cuban sports since 1959.

Police said on Tuesday the victim was an adult woman. The alleged incident had taken place in the Tampere Ilves hotel. No more details were immediately known.

The police has until the end of August to raise charges. The detention will be reviewed in two weeks time. Enditem

WASHINGTON vans sk8 hi zwart , May 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese consumers will continue to increase in wealth and complexity, and fears about the country' s slowing economy are overblown, experts said.

Many people who worry about economic rebalancing in China focus only on the low share of household consumption of gross domestic product (GDP) instead of getting the big picture of China's consumer story, said Jeffery Towson, a managing partner of the investment firm Towson Capital, and Jonathan Woetzel vans sk8 hi leer wit , a director in McKinsey's Shanghai office, in a recent article published on the website of McKinsey.

"Regardless of its relative percentage of GDP, China's consumption has been growing faster than just about any other country's in absolute terms," they said, adding that China's consumption grew from around 650 billion U.S. dollars in 2000 to almost 1.4 trillion dollars in 2010.

Given the size of China's consumption, it would "create the largest consumer market in the world" and "have a huge impact on rebalancing vans sk8 hi leer zwart ," if the consumption share of GDP just rises back to 43 percent in 1995 from 34 percent in 2013, they said.

In other words, the low consumption ratio does not mean China's consumption is weak. On the contrary, China has experienced dramatic consumption growth in the past decade.

Particularly, the rising discretionary spending, which refers to money spent on non-essential purchases vans sk8 hi pro zwart , made the experts more optimistic about the country's potential tremendous purchasing power.

"Chinese citizens are now moving beyond being able to only afford the basics of life, and their discretionary spending is taking off," they said, adding that Chinese people "seem to have an endless appetite for everything from entertainment to skiing to caffe lattes."

Discretionary spending in China is expected to grow more than 7 percent a year between 2010 and 2020, faster than spending on actual necessities, which are estimated to grow around 5 percent a year vans sk8 hi slim wit , according to the experts.

What's more important, China's household income is now likely above 5 trillion dollars a year, much higher than household income of other developing economies such as Brazil, Russia and India, they said.

Household income is a more important gauge of a country's future economic performance, as "you can't have consumption without income vans sk8 hi slim zwart ," they added.

With GDP growth slowing while household income and consumption remain robust, there is no doubt that the consumption share of GDP in China will increase in the future.

"China has an awesome consumer story," they said. "It may be volatile. It's also somewhat unpredictable. But you just don't get a consumer story this good anywhere else."

BRUSSELS, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The seasonally-adjusted gross domestic product (GDP) rose by 0.4 percent in both the euro zone and the European Union (EU) during the first quarter of 2015, compared to the previous quarter, according to flash estimates published by Eurostat on Wednesday.

The initiative launched this week, the Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative or We-Fi, aims to boost access to capital for businesswomen in the developing world.

"Fully unleashing the power of women in our economy will create tremendous value but also bring much-needed peace, stability and prosperity to many regions," Trump said during an event at the annual meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

Women-owned businesses in the developing world suffer an annual credit deficit of $300 billion, either by being unable to borrow or receiving only high-cost vans sk8 hi reissue wit , short-term credit, she noted.

"They say that women invest 90 cents on the dollar back in their family, their family's education, their family’s health and their community at large," she said.
