d Cross Society of China arrived in Kabul again, marking the beginning of the project’s second phase. It is expected that an add
itional 150 Afghan children with conge
nital heart disease will be selected after screening in Ka 上海千花网品茶微信 bul and then sent to hospitals in China for treatment, said Liu Xuanguo, vice-president of the CRCF.
In addition to Afghanistan, the foun
dation has provided h 上海千花网 umanitarian assistance to 26 countries in Asia and Africa in recent years. Among the pro
上海千花网jects, it has established emergency centers in Pakistan, provided free diagnos
is and treatment to children with co ngenital heart disease in Afghanistan and Mongolia, built a blood dialysis center in B
angladesh, constructed mobile hospitals for Syria and Iraq and donated rescue vehicles i
n Cambodia and Laos, he said. 上海千花网 “Most of the programs have been carried out since 2017, follow
ing the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative (in 2013),”
Liu said. “Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries involved in the 上海千花网品茶微信
initiative. Although much smaller in scale compared with international assistance delivered by the Chinese gov
ernment, China Red Cross humanitarian assistance has played a very important role in promoting frie
上海千花网ndship between China and these countries, and emotional connectivity between different peoples.”
For example, a foundation project that has provided free treatment in Chinese hospitals over the past two years to 100 Mo
ngolian children under age 14 with congenital heart disease has won high praise from the Mongolian government a 上海千花网
nd was recognized as one of the best humanitarian assistance projects in the country last year, Liu said.
In June, another Chinese medical team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to screen around 100 of the m
ost urgent cases of congenital heart disease for free treatment in Hohhot, the capital of 上海千花网品茶微信
the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and in Wuxi, Jiangsu province.
In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in 上海千花网
cooperation with the Pakistani Red Crescent Society has also won the praise of locals, Liu said.
As of the end of April, three medical assistance teams sent by the Red 上海千花网品茶微信
Cross Society of China had been to the center in Gwadar since its establishment in Sep
tember 2017. Large numbers of Chinese employees work there to assist with various projects.
There are few factors that would continue to push up inflation except for food, he said. A
uthorities have vowed to keep the country’s
monetary policy prudent and will not resort to excessive m上海千花网女神会所 oney supply to stimulate economic growth, thereby helping to stabilize prices, Liu said.
上海千花网Li Chao, chief economist at Huatai Securit
ies, said that the July readin g may be the highest this year because prices of most items have remained stable or we
akened. As the momentum of price increases for fruit and pork is expected to weaken, CPI growth may trend down in t上海千花网女神会所
st-October period. “We think the price rise pressure remains controllable,” he said in a research note. The stable inflation level will not have a significant bearing on monetary policymaking, said Liu of CUFE.
also warned that policymakers should closely monitor the food price changes and ensure stable food supplies to iron out major price fluctuations.上海千花网
The producer price index, which measures factory-gate prices and co
ncerns corporate profitability, dropped by 0.3 percent year-on-year in July, the NBS said.上海千花网
The fall reflects the easing of GDP growth, which slowed to 6.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter.
上海千花网女神会所”The fall is in line with market expectations,” said Zhu Jianfang and Liu Boyang, economists at CITIC Securities. The c
ountry’s environmental protection measures, which reduce production capacity, may help bolster PPI in the com
ing months, but the situation will not improve significantly, they said in a research note.上海千花网

Chen Hongqiang, a local grassroots official, said he is in favor of the notice.上海千花网
“One WeChat group in one unit, and no work assignments and related content are allowed to be published in the

Chinese and Western elements and values can find common ground. A good example being the part in the trailer where the matchmaker describes the qu
alities that make for a good wife, namely a woma
n being “quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined”. This is said with M上海千花网品茶微信 ulan appearing in two images. One has her dressing as a woman, the other with her practicing sword. Obviously Disney de
上海千花网scribed Mulan as a warrior, an independ
ent female who can save herself instead of waiting for someone to save her. That’s a good point where Chinese and Western values are similar because gender equality and female independence are上海千花网
d in both cultures. It will strike a chord with both Chinese and Western audiences. 上海千花网品茶微信But whatever styles her clothes and makeup follow, Mulan is a Chinese legendary heroine and she embodies the virtues of Chinese wo
ney’s Mulan should also prompt the Chinese movie industry to make better use of Chinese stories. Chinese scriptwriters an d directors can well tell stories about Chinese ancient heroes to the world, instead of waiting for Disney or H上海千花网
ollywood to tell them. Good stories move audiences of the whole world because their hearts are interconnected.

Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub
With its modern industrial system, Tianhe di
strict in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信 rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Ma
cao Greater Bay Area to become an international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t
上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangd
ong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation. Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove
rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信
By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune
Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj 上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city
‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis
trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网
eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.
上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen
t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.
More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网
sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go
上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.
With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c
alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信
llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr
eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di
strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信
As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie
s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u
p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信
Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent
of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.
By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent
erprises, as well as more than 50,000 science and technology enterprises.
The Sino-Singapore Knowledge Forum was held in the city-state at the Four Seasons Ho
tel on Friday, when officials and top executi
ves from both sides signed numerous agreements.上海千花网 It was the first time that the annual event has been held in Singapore. Previously, it had been hosted in Guangzhou, Guangdon

F is currently the only high-level forum that is n
ow taking turns to be held in China and Singapore, its organizers said. Themed “forging new frontiers – all-round opening-up and innovation-driven development”, this year’s f上海千花网
orum was designed to tap the collective intelligence of think tanks, experts and business leaders from China and Singapore.
At the e
vent, trending topics were explored during panel discussions regar 上海千花网品茶微信ding future cooperation and development between the two countries, the organizers said.
An estimated 250 guests from Singapore and China attended, following the Singa
pore-Guangdong Collaboration Council’s ninth meeting, which was held the morning of the same day.上海千花网品茶微信
A series of agreements were signed during the meeting.
Among them was a memorandum of understanding for the development of an international artificial intelligence innov
上海千花网品茶微信ation center funded by TUS Financial Group from China and Ascendas-Singbridge Group from Singapore.
In response to the Chinese government’s drive to create an international in
dustry innovation hub in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the center is pl上海千花网
anned to be built at the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City and leverage its research and de

e prototype of how business should be run. Car company executives were seen as the most capable manage
上海千花网品茶微信rs. In 1953, president Eisenhower chose Charles Wilson, known as “engine Charlie,
” to be his Secretary of Defense. Then, in 1961, president Kennedy chose Ford president Robert McNamara for the same position. (Of course, McNamara’s incredible mismanagement of the war in Vietnam reduced any confidence that car company executives were especially competent.)
By the late 1960s, the “big three “car companies in the US – General Motors, Ford, an
d Chrysler – formed a virtual oligopoly and turned lazy. 上海千花网 I remember American cars my father bought in these years often overheating and breaking down by the side of the road. Dad would have to stay by the car with my m
other and sisters while I walked a long way to find a service station and arrange a tow. (This was long before mobile phones.) 上海千花网品茶微信
erican consumers were ready for more competitive Japanese-made cars, which had consistently high er quality, to enter the market. My father switched to Japanese cars in the 1970s, and never bought another American-made car. 上海千花网
American car companies saw their profits fa
ll and were not able to pay their workers t he very high wages made possible by a closed, non-competitive market. The US government responded by
上海千花网品茶微信imposing quotas on the import of Japanese cars and by pushing Japan to rapidly raise the value of the yen.
Obviously, there was a conflict. American consumers benefitted from the cheaper, better cars while workers at the big three saw their jobs become less secure and the
ir wages fall. Fortunately, the protection was only partial and temporary, so the competition eventually forced US carmakers to improve.
Competition is at the heart of the current disputes over globalization and technology. On net, the spread of econo 上海千花网品茶微信
mic opportunities around the world has been a great boon. Many products are more widely and cheaply available than ever before.
Many countries, including China and India, have greatly reduced poverty and given opportunities to their people that would have been undreamed of by earlier ge 上海千花网
nerations. American and Western European companies and consumers have greatly benefitted.
But nobody really likes competition against themselves. Most people like some degree of stability and protection. A worker w
ho has put in 20 or 30 years in an industry will definitely feel that it is unfair to have to move to a much lower-pa
ying service job. A company facing new competitors will try to convince its home government to stop the competition.
Americans saw many benefits from the second globalization period. As Japanese and, later Chinese, manufacturers began to export t
o the US, many consumer goods became a lot cheaper in US stores. Many American companies made good profits by exporting t
o the newly open markets or by outsourcing manufacturing to cheaper and/or better factories outside the US.
and a former ch上海千花网品茶微信airman of Morgan Stanley Asia, warned that if the US and China, wh
ich have accounted for fully 44 percent of world GDP
growth since 2008, opt for a superficial res olution or fail to come to terms on their trade conflict, the global economy could well falter.
Bipartisan political support for China bashing
in the savings-shor t US threatens to turn a trade war into a protracted and destructive economic cold war, Roach said.
“Now, more than ever, a fragile world is in desp
erate need of political will and wisdom,” he said. Xiong Aizong, assistant researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institut
