five years have been the hottest on record in Asia and the Pacific. Unprece dented heatwaves have swept across our region, slowly leading to disasters such as drought.亚搏官网千花坊
Yet heat is only part of the picture. Tropic
al cyclones have struck new, unprepared parts of our region and devastatingly frequent floods have ensued. In Iran, they affected 10 million p
亚搏官网千花坊女神会所eople this year and displaced 500,000, of which half were children. Bangladesh is experiencing its fourth wave of
flooding in 2019. Last year, the province of Kerala in India faced the worst floods in a century.
This is the new climate reality in Asia and the Pacific. The scale of forecast economic losses for the region is sobe亚搏官网千花坊
ring. Including the slow onset of disasters, average annual losses until 2030 are set to quadruple to about $675
billion, compared with previous estimates. This represents 2.4 percent of the region’s GDP.
Economic losses of such magnitude will undermine both economic growth and亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
our region’s efforts to reduce poverty and inequality, keeping children out of scho
ols and adults of work. Basic health services will be undermined, crops destroyed and food security jeopardized. If
we do not act now, the Asia-Pacific’s poorest communities will be among the worst affected.亚搏官网千花坊
Four areas of Asia and the Pacific are particularly vulnerable, hotspo
ts which combine vulnerability to climate change, poverty and disaster risk. In trans-c
亚搏官网千花坊女神会所ountry river basins in South and Southeast Asia such as the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basin, floods
alternate with prolonged droughts. In Southeast Asia and East and Northeast Asia earthq
uakes, tsunamis and landslides threaten poor populations in the Pacific Ring of Fire.

ents of Hong Kong have shown their patriotism by raising the national flag again. As the flag ascended to the top of
亚搏官网千花坊the pole, these patriots sang China’s natio
nal anthem and many passers-by stopped to join them. A comparison of the two sides shows who truly loves Hong Kong. The rioters are damaging everything and they want to turn the pr
亚搏官网千花坊女神会所osperous city into a place of chaos and disord
er. If they were to get their way, Hong Kong residents would have to live in fear, while the Hong Kong economy would be severely damaged, because few tourists would want to travel
to a city full of violence while no investor would be
willing to put their money into the SAR.亚搏官网千花坊 Fortunately, there are patriotic residents in Hong Kong, who hope to restore normal order to their home city s
亚搏官网千花坊o that everybody can work hard and enjoy their peaceful daily lives here. It is their ef
forts that will save Hong Kong from falling into economic decline and social disorder, and it is their courage that shows the world the true attitude of the
majority of Hong Kong people who do not support the violent and radical deeds of a few “protestors”.亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
The majority of the Hong Kong people want peace, order, and a prosperous home. The rioters’ are threatening their normal lives.
亚搏官网千花坊The future of Hong Kong lies in the hands of these patriotic residents. T
he riots have brought untold suffering and losses to the city, but with the efforts of all pa
triots in the city, Hong Kong will see a good recovery quickly after order is restored.
China will further enhance its strategic strength with strong bottom-line亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
thought, follow its own pace in developing its economy and will not compromise in the
ay the United States wants in order to resolve bilateral trade issues, experts said.
亚搏官网千花坊They described China’s stance after the US administration said on Thursday that it would impose an additional 10 percent t
ariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting Sept 1. The new tariff threat came just after the 12th round of
bilateral trade talks in Shanghai, which had been described as “constructive” by both sides.亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
The plan will put additional tariffs on virtually all Chinese products entering the US except for medicines.
The US goal in imposing new tariffs is to build a global industrial chain and technology advantage led by that country, experts said.
?Wednesday. Hong Kong Police have charged 44 people for rioting as of Tu
亚搏官网千花坊esday, following an illegal assembly held in Weste
rn District on Hong Kong Island on S Thus, Fan said it was not strange that some people from Taiwan were assisting and financing the violent protesters.
The city was in shock after masked radical pr
otesters escalated violence on July 1 by亚搏官网千花坊 storming into the city’s legislature and vandalizing the complex, resulting in an early recess of the legi
亚搏官网千花坊品茶微信slature and costing about HK$40 million to HK$
50 million ($5.1 million to $6.4 million) to repair. One of the lawless intruders, who took off his mask, was identified as a “pro-Hong Kong in
dependence” graduate of the University of Hong Kong and reportedly fled to the US through Taiwan.亚搏官网千花坊
It was also reported by the media that a large grou
p of violent rioters had fled to Taiwan to seek 亚搏官网千花坊品茶微信asylum shortly after July 1. Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen described them as “friends from Hong Kong” and sa
id the Taiwan authorities would consider their applications for asylum on humanitarian grounds.
Fan said the violent protesters, who were manipulated by external influences, intended to provoke and test the bottom li亚搏官网千花坊
ne of the central government by attacking the Legislative Council, the building of the Liaison Office of the C
亚搏官网千花坊品茶微信entral People’s Government in the HKSAR and defacing the national emblem.
The recent mayhem has also caused some to call into question liberal studies in the city.
In the wake of the violent attack on July 1, Tung Chee-hwa, vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Peo
ple’s Political Consultative Conference, China’s top advisory body, called liberal studies a total failure.亚搏官网千花坊品茶微信
The design of liberal studies is flawed, Fan said, since there are no syllabuses or te
xtbooks. It is up to the teachers to prepare teaching materials for students, Fan said.
亚搏官网千花坊Currently, liberal studies is a compulsory subject and examinations also are required.
“If students want to make high marks, they must follow what the teachers teach them an
d adapt to the style of the examination papers. In case the liberal studies teachers have亚搏官网千花坊品茶微信
strong political inclinations, they will instill anti-China and anti-establishment ideas in the mind of students.”

“When we started, the (ancient) Greek and Roman cultures and Renaissance were really亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
well understood in the West, and there was no new ground to be broken,” Thomas Pritzker, 69, tells China Daily.
“But here we discovered a lot of new ground to cover,” he sa
亚搏官网千花坊女神会所ys. “Tubo studies were in their infancy then, and we could do things that are really exciting.”
In recent years, studies of the Reshui site, a Tubo graveyard in Dula

By comparison, studies of burial sites in Ngari offer a more global perspective through its links with other civilizations outside of China.亚搏官网千花坊
“However, these regions are on the frontiers of the Tubo regime,” Luo says. “Details of t

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated econom
ic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.亚搏官网千花坊 During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in亚搏官网千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
? Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?亚搏官网千花坊女神会所 Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a
solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral 亚搏官网千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? T
he answer is clearly both in theory and in practice. In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t亚搏官网千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co亚搏官网千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
? Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair? Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.
