One day before the opening of BIBF, the 13th Special Book Award of China was held in Beijing微信群红包夜生活
to honor 15 foreign writers, translators and publishers who have helped spread Chinese culture.
微信群红包夜生活女神会所Romanian translator Ioan Budura was one of the award winners. He said he felt enc
ouraged by the honor and wanted to “continue supporting the communication betwe
en China and Romania” in the future. Romania is also featured as the guest of honor of the fair this year.微信群红包夜生活
A Beijing International Publishing Forum was also held on
Aug 20 to discuss how to improve the quality of publishing content and promotion.
微信群红包夜生活女神会所A Hong Kong pavilion has also been opened at the book fair despite the special administrative region’s recent troubles.
“It is Hong Kong’s ninth visit to BIBF, and we want to exchange Hong
Kong’s creations with people in the publishing business and with readers through this o微信群红包夜生活
pportunity,” said Lee Ka Kui, chairman of Hong Kong Publishing Federation Limited.
Lee admits the recent chaos in Hong Kong has negatively affected publishing th
ere since many retail bookstores have closed and much fewer people attended the H微信群红包夜生活女神会所
ong Kong Book Fair that was held on July 17-23. He hopes violence will cease and communication will continue.
This time, 66 Hong Kong companies brought over 2,000 books and other works. One feature of their pavilion is a cre微信群红包夜生活
ation corner showcasing many STEM books – about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“It seems STEM books are quite popular in the world now, and we want to follow that trend,” Lee said.
微信群红包夜生活女神会所The pavilion also contains an artistic and cultural zone exhibiting some Cantonese books.
“I hope we will bring more Chinese mainland writers and books to Hong Kong, and vice versa,” Lee said.
The establishment of a national ethics committee on science and technology will i微信群红包夜生活

“There have long been calls to set up a top-level ethics committee to微信群红包夜生活女神会所

ector of the National Health Commission’s Expert Committee on Medical Science Ethics.

There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa
微信群红包千花网shington Post by a group from the academic, foreign policy, military and business communities, overwhelmingly from
the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.
The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar微信群红包千花网女神会所
ket share for Chinese companies and an increase in China’s role in world affairs…. We do not believe Beijing is an ec
nomic enemy or an existential national security threat that must be confronted in every sphere.”微信群红包千花网
It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay
away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact－t

restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are
contributing to it, for, as the open letter mentioned earlier also says, “Efforts to isolate
China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”微信群红包千花网

Borrowing costs will get lower for companies in China starting Tuesday through a
key interest rate reform brought out by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to maintain ec微信群红包419
onomic momentum amid the continuing trade friction with the United States.
微信群红包419女神会所Analysts say the interest rate reform will lower financing costs for small a
nd private companies and encourage investment in the manufacturing sector.
The PBOC unveiled the policy over the weekend, saying it would introduce a new reference rate, the loan prime rate－the pr微信群红包419
ice of loans banks offer their best clients－for setting the prices of business and household loans. The earlier re
微信群红包419ference rate, the one-year benchmark lending rate, will be replaced in the future.
The announcement is seen as China’s most significant market-based interest rate reform for over a decade, experts said.微信群红包419女神会所
The PBOC said in a statement that, starting Tuesday, 18 qualified commer
cial banks, including State-owned banks, city and rural commercial banks and foreign banks, will report their lend
微信群红包419ing reference rate every month. Analysts expect the first loan prime rate will be much lower than the current 4.35 per
cent one-year benchmark lending rate, which has been unchanged since August 2015.
The statement said commercial banks will be allo微信群红包419
wed to float the lending rates up by certain percentage points above the medium-ter
微信群红包419女神会所m lending facility rate of the central bank. The medium-term lending rate is the cost that commercial banks sho
uld pay for borrowing from the central bank, and it was set at 3.3 percent on Thursday.
Sheng Songcheng, a central bank adviser and former head of the PBOC’s
statistics department, said the reform will help keep lending rates lower.
Moreover, the changes will enable the PBOC to effectively influence Chin微信群红包419女神会所
a’s entire interest rate system by selling or buying financial instruments on the open
market, much like how Western central banks implement monetary policy, Sheng said.

Beijing has unveiled a three-year action plan to further reform and expa微信群红包楼凤

微信群红包楼凤The plan came up with 190 specific measures to open wider in eight fields in the service sector, including science and tech

New measures will be taken in the professional service field to stre微信群红包楼凤女神会所

By easing restrictions and allowing wider market access for overseas investors, Beijing
has seen a growing number of new foreign businesses settled, including Toyota Fina微信群红包楼凤
ncial Services and BMW’s new subsidiary for digital solutions, said Yan Ligang, head of the bureau.
The city’s actual use of foreign capital was $8.59 billion in the first half of 2019, with 755 fo

The growth rate of the government’s fiscal income slipped to 3.1 percent in the year’s first seven months, the slowest in four years.
But moderation in fiscal income will not weaken authorities’ capacity for expa微信群红包楼凤

On Friday, the Ministry of Finance reported 12.56 trillion yuan ($1.78 tr
illion) in fiscal revenue in the first seven months, representing a year-on-year g微信群红包楼凤女神会所
rowth rate of 3.1 percent. That’s down from a 3.4 percent growth rate in the first half of the year.
Fiscal spending grew 9.9 percent from a year earlier to 13.8 trillion yuan i
about 58 million tons of fertilizer were sprayed on farmland, a decline of nearly 1.25 million tons from the previous year.

One of her visits to the country was in April last year, to help carry out a joint program bet

“I was shocked to see so many children waiting in line with their parents and relatives outside the clinics to see the doctors,” she said.
Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e
arly in China, some of the patients waiting for screening are more than 10 years old and微信群红包千花坊
had not been diagnosed previously due to a lack of access to health care services, Gu said.
“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran微信群红包千花坊女神会所
ches are from outside Kabul and did not manage to arrive due to problems such as transportation,” she said.
By November last year, 100 Afghan children with congenital heart disease had re

rrorism, in which large numbers of people were involved with even more having been
affected. The scale of the problem posed a serious challenge to China’s efforts to fight terrorism and extremism.
微信群红包419论坛Extremist forces spread by exploiting people’s religious beliefs through
Xinjiang’s large religious population through deliberate distortion of religious do
trines. They also incited people to overthrow secular governments and establish微信群红包419论坛女神会所

Education and training are not measures to limit or circumscribe freedom of the person as described by some. Rather, it is an
important measure to help trainees break free from ideas of terrorism and religious extremism.微信群红包419论坛女神会所
It is ultimately an attempt to help the trainees to emancipate their minds, improve themselves and th

Fu met media after he was discharged from the Princess Margaret Hospital in the New Territories of Hong Kong SAR. Fu微信群红包419

Fu thanked the public for their care and concern, saying he still loves Hong Kong.
微信群红包419Fu was sent to Hong Kong by the Global Times to cover the protests. The mass sit-in
at the airport started on Friday and led the airport to halt operations for two days.
Wearing a yellow press jacket, Fu’s hands and legs were bound while he微信群红包419
was assaulted by a group of protestors who didn’t believe him to be journalist.
Fu was taken away by ambulance early Wednesday morning.
Hours before the assault of Fu, a tourist from Shenzhen, Guangdong province, was微信群红包419女神会所

微信群红包419The protestors demanded that the journalists produce identity documents to prove that they were reporters.
The man was later rescued after riot police arrived at the airport.
Shortly after Fu was detained and assaulted, Global Times editor-in-chief Hu

?and prejudice— no matter how soft-pedaled things got right before Hong Kong’s return — plays into the hands of tho

This is where the contrast between flags must be emphasized. Blind worsh
ip of any national symbol is dangerous, but the Chinese flag stands for very different prin
微信群红包千花坊ciples than the British or US ones. The People’s Republic of China flag represents liberation and an end to exp
loitation, and was only raised after years of bloodshed and revolutionary struggle. That success was the cul
mination of a century of resistance to imperialism, feudalism and colonialism. Countless lives were lost in pursuit of this no微信群红包千花坊女神会所
ble goal, and those martyrs live on in the flag’s red fabric, as do the many others who have stood against opp
ression all over the world. The Chinese people are well aware of this, and treat their flag with care and pride.
But that shouldn’t be conflated with the callous jingoism of “former” colonial powers. Victory in a war of liberation and rut微信群红包千花坊女神会所
hless imperial conquest are polar opposites — the former should be a source of strength and motivation in the fac
e of adversity, the latter should be regarded with the deepest shame. I myself recall my childhood in Texas, wh
微信群红包千花坊ere the flag of the US was invoked to justify unilateral action against countless countries and the massacring of millions. T

or leave it” attitude is deployed against any critics of the country’s record of bigotry and genocide.
Police in 154 cities across the country have destroyed 107,000 illegal firearms, explosives and detonators that were co

On Monday morning, police in Wuhan, Hubei province, destroyed a number of air
微信群红包419论坛品茶微信guns, shotguns and replica firearms as well as explosives and detonators by melting
them in a steel plant furnace, which was stoked to reach temperatures of up to 1,600 C.
“Gun- and explosives-related cases endanger people’s lives, public security and the co

“We will take effective measures to curb gun- and explosives-rel

In recent years, although such crimes have declined sign
微信群红包419论坛ificantly due to police efforts, some cases have occurred spora
dically around the country, Guo Lin, ministry spokeswoman, said earlier this year.
In order to tackle the issue, the ministry, together with 23 other authorities, set up a mini微信群红包419论坛品茶微信
sterial-level meeting mechanism under which they will share intelligence in a timely manner and take required acti
on. In February 2018, they launched a two-year campaign to crack down on weapons crimes.
Last year, police nationwide dealt with more than 30,000 gun- and explosives-related cases, u
微信群红包419论坛ncovered 416 criminal gangs and detained more than 40,000 suspects. From January to November last ye

Since January, police across the country dealt with 16,000 such cases, uncovered 163 organized crime operations and de微信群红包419论坛品茶微信
tained 17,000 suspects. Between January and July, gun- and explosives-related cri
