|ATHENS， Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Greek Orthodox Christians on Monday celebrated the end of the carnival festivities and the start of Lent.
Clean Monday or Ash Monday (Kathara Deytera in Greek) is a public holiday， marking the 40 days countdown to the Easter holiday. Traditionally it is celebrated with family excursions to the countryside for picnics and flying kites.
According to tradition， over the next six weeks faithful Greeks will not consume meat， eggs and dairy products to "clean their body and soul" for Easter.
Most Greeks nowadays do not fast for the entire period， but enjoy traditional delicacies on this day， while trying to take a break from the gloom of the debt crisis.
Nikos Charis， a father of two， cannot afford an excursion to his village in recent years， but took his family to a park at the Athens district of Galatsi to celebrate Clean Monday.
The family shared traditional dishes based on seafood， as well as bean soup， a special bread called "lagana" which is baked only on this day， and "halva" for dessert， made from tahini (sesame paste).
Many recession-hit consumers like Nadia Koutsikou found prices expensive for the family budget and cut their spending.
"It is always a little bit more expensive than the previous year， but anyway this is a must for today. What can we do? We have bought delicacies just for a small bite. Just a few things，" Koutsikou told Xinhua.

NEW YORK Mens Jordan Shoes For Sale , May 18 (Xinhua) -- One can hardly tell what a New York high-rise building has to do with Fosun, one of China's largest private companies, until arriving at a 40-floor-skyscraper on the 28 Liberty Street in the downtown Manhattan Financial District.
The Chinese investment company bought the office building, formerly named One Chase Manhattan Plaza, from JPMorgan in October 2013 for 725 million U.S. dollars. However Cheap Air Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , the renovation of the plaza helped Chinese investors understand better about the ways of doing business in the United State.
PLAYING BY RULES
"There is actually a story about it," said Kate Zhao, Director of the Marketing & Corporate Communications of the Fosun Group.
"It is a landmark building, and we need to meet the requirements set out by U.S. authorities in its renaming and renovation," said Zhao.
"Any changes to the facade of the building are prohibited Cheap Air Jordan Retro For Sale , and many local families who have lived here for generations do not like too many changes either," she told Xinhua.
The acquisition of the skyscraper demonstrates the fact that following rules is a must for foreign investors.
"In the United States, you have to understand and respect the rules and play by the rules," Zhao said.
"Playing by the rules" is one of the major factors that attracted Chinese companies to increase their investment here. Others include robust economic outlook, the large consumer end market and large base of technology and brand assets.
Fosun has made a total of 3 billion dollars investment in the United States since 2012 Cheap Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , supporting about 8,000 local jobs.
A new report jointly released by the Rhodium Group and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR) shows Chinese companies invested a record 46 billion U.S. dollars in the United States in 2016, a tenfold increase compared to just five years ago.
CHALLENGES AND CONCERNS REMAIN
As Chinese companies expand rapidly in the United States, longtime challenges and concerns remain for Chinese investors even though they are getting more and more adapted to the American ways of doing businesses.
The U.S. trade protectionism, the rising labor costs Cheap Air Jordan For Sale , biases, and the nontransparency of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.(CFIUS) review continued to pose threats to Chinese investment, said China General Chamber of Commerce - U.S.A.(CGCC) in its 2016 annual Survey Report on Chinese Enterprises in the United States.
According to the survey, Chinese companies are facing a common challenge of the complex and unfamiliar U.S. legal system that results in expensive legal, tax Cheap Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , and compliance costs.
In addition, new challenges have emerged such as the conflicts of laws between the two countries, the complex intellectual property rights system, and the high cost of exceeding compliance management, the survey said.
The U.S. legal and regulatory system involves many different players at the federal and state levels Cheap Jordan Retro For Sale , this complexity makes the country's regulatory environment harder for Chinese companies to navigate.
"In 2014, we received only two supervisory inspections, in 2016 we received eight, and in the first half of this year, the number of times reaches above eight Cheap Jordan Shoes For Sale ," said Chen Xu, Chairman of CGCC, and President & CEO of Bank of China USA, in a recent interview with Xinhua.
"We know they are important but if we do everything we can to deal with these inspections, do we have extra energy to do our businesses Air Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , to support Chinese enterprises to invest in the United States?" Xu questioned.
Xu has told Xinhua that both local and foreign enterprises have been calling for deregulation during last two years.
"Regulation is endless. There are businesses, there are risks. You have to find a balance between the development and risk control. Overregulation will take a heavy toll on the market efficiency and undermine the competitiveness of the U.S. investment market," Xu elaborated.
OVER-REVIEW NO GOOD FOR INVESTMENT
The Rhodium Group also warned that Chinese investors would face greater uncertainty and political deal risk in the United States.
One of the themes of the Trump campaign was the need for enhanced national security, therefore, it is highly likely that the CFIUS reviews will become more stringent under the new administration.
