Regulations on the Administration of Domestic Waste in Shanghai came into effect on July 1, 2019.
娱乐地图女神会所This shows that Shanghai is carrying out the most ambitious gar
bage revolution in history, with the topic “Garbage Classification Revolution” in Shanghai beco
ming a major point of public discussion, attracting media attention at home and abroad.娱乐地图
1. Shanghai’s waste classification system: infrastructure and humanism
娱乐地图女神会所China has carried out bagged garbage collection since the mid-80s and in 1995 began exploring the classification of garbage.
The Ministry of Housing and Construction in 2000 selected eight maj
or cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou, to classify and recycle garbage.娱乐地图
After 19 years of this pilot, the expected results have not been achieved. Munici
娱乐地图女神会所pal garbage disposal has become a bottleneck problem restricting China’s development.
Shanghai is on par with cities like New York, London, Tokyo and Paris when consider
ing its economy and finance, shipping, trade, and science and technology industries.娱乐地图女神会所
Today incineration accounts for about 36 percent of Shanghai’s dome
s娱乐地图tic waste treatment, landfills about half,, and recycling less than 10 percent.
The figures for London are 40, 30, and nearly 30 percent, respectively, with Tokyo registering about 75, 3, and 20 percent.
Compared with these global first-tier cities, the gap in urban waste classificati娱乐地图女神会所
on in Shanghai is not only down to infrastructure, but the humanism of its residents.
2. Shanghai’s three later-developing advantages娱乐地图
After entering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
娱乐地图in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.

Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.
revenue collected by the US government through hefty tariffs on Chinese imports, has been paid almost entirely by US importers.
“Some of these tariffs have been passed on to US consumers, such as those on washing machines, wh
ile others have been absorbed by importing firms through lower profit margins,” the research said.
Any further increase in tariffs will likely be passed through to consumers, it said.
China and the US, the world’s two largest economies, have been embroi
led in a tit-for-tat trade confrontation over the past few months. Washington threatened to fur
ther escalate a tariff war and increased tensions by tightening restrictions on Chinese companies.
Earlier this month, the US raised tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent, and China took coun
termeasures. Then the US administration listed about $300 billion more of Chinese goods for possible tariff hikes.
for more than 60 years and stayed true to his original aspirations. As a s
oldier, Zhang defended the country; as a civilian, he works for the people’s well-being, Xi said.
Zhang lives a life of simplicity, purity and indifference to fame and fortune, serving as a role
model for military officers, rank-and-file soldiers and veterans across the country, Xi said.
Zhang, a member of the CPC, was a soldier of Brigade 359 of the Northwest Field Ar
my, one of the main forces of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army during the Liberation War between 1945 and 1949.
He was honored by the Northwest Field Army sever
al times for performing meritorious deeds as he braved enemy fire. He was twice given the honorary title of C
Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumption in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of eco
nomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a situa
tion, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.
To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US needs to introduce and use more foreign ca
pital, which will further enlarge the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high g
rowth rate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.
What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regulation of the economy, the US administration has been tryi
ng to impose regulations on international trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.
