“Nowadays, more Chinese people have come to know Japan through tourism and education, but that is not the case for Japa

IMF report shows a pattern of stability that undercuts US charge against China?
China’s stance that it did not manipulate its currency is based on solid ground, and the country’s f亚搏官网千花网品茶微信
irm resolve to refrain from competitive devaluation and to promote the coordination of int
ernational currency policy has contributed to global financial stability, officials and analysts said.
The latest report by the International Monetary Fund said that in 2018 the exchange rate of the Ch亚搏官网千花网

the monkey section as they are more active during night. Also, the giant panda exhibition area will not open at night.亚搏官网后花园女神会所
“We have adjusted the light system for the night zoo, with brighter lighting on the roads, water areas, and toilets to secure
亚搏官网后花园visitors’ safety while using diffuse lights to simulate a natural moonlight effect in the animals’ living areas,” Zhong added.
“I came to the night zoo because of curiosity about the animals’ behavior during the
nighttime,” said Liu Yufei, a 20-year-old student who visited the night zoo on opening day.亚搏官网后花园女神会所
“Since I have class in the daytime, the night zoo provides me a new way to spend the
亚搏官网后花园night. There are also fewer tourists at night, and the summer weather is comfortable,” Liu said.
“But the transportation is an issue,” she added.
The night zoo opened six animal-themed exhibition areas, three featu
red performances, animal-themed restaurants, and souvenirs stores.亚搏官网后花园
It also launched the “Night Animal Tour” and animal shows at Sea Lion Theater and International Circus Theater.
Zhang Caiyun, another tourist who brought her 6-year-old son to the zoo, said: “the colorful lights and the animal tou亚搏官网后花园女神会所
r are more attractive than the daytime activities and I don’t have to worry about my son getting sunburned at night.”
“The closing of the drive-through area is the only regret. It will be a u亚搏官网后花园
nique experience to visit rare animals through the dark by tour bus,” Zhang said.
Having prepared for about three years for the night project, the park will evaluate its operation to adjust the layout of the亚搏官网后花园女神会所
animals, types of exhibitions, and the night facilities after operating for a while, according to park authorities.
On the same day that the zoo opened, the city also issued a list of cultural and tourist sites that are opening at night. More
than 100 spots were listed, according to Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism.

亚搏官网夜网New China faced many twists and turns in the first 30 years in rebuilding its economy. Even durin
g the 40 years of reform and opening-up, it has successfully weathered many a powerful s
torm including four major external crises: the debt crisis in the early 1980s, Western sanctions from the late 1980s to亚搏官网夜网女神会所
the early 1990s, the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis.
Centralized leadership adds to China’s advantages
亚搏官网夜网Admittedly, the Chinese economy has been facing a new type of challenge since the second half of 2018 because of the tr
ade war launched against it by the US. Yet the new challenge cannot be compared with the past external crises. Ev
en in the 1990s, at the height of Western sanctions, China was able to reverse the trade deficit that had u亚搏官网夜网女神会所
ndermined its economy for nearly 100 years since the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-95).
亚搏官网夜网Now, China has to deal with the fifth major external challenge: the US-instigated trade war. Notwithstanding the s
aber-rattling of some US politicians and the US administration’s desperate attempt to prevent the rise of Chinese hi
gh-tech companies, which reminds one of the Cold War, do those trying to force China to concede ground by applying “
亚搏官网夜网maximum pressure” really understand how China has weathered powerful storms in the past decades?
Without economic resilience and expertise in the high-tech sector, China would not have been able to close the
wide gap with the US in national strength. Perhaps this is why the US has labeled China as a major competitor.亚搏官网夜网女神会所
The domestic political infighting in the US unseen in decades is likely t
o intensify and create a bigger problem for the White House. By contrast, the
strengthened centralized leadership of China is well-positioned to deal with any challenges with greater efficiency. In this亚搏官网夜网
regard, the US hawks, who have turned a blind eye to China’s resilience, should look at China’s history and see how it has
overcome challenges, and stop resorting to “maximum pressure” to fulfill their narrow political goals.亚搏官网夜网女神会所

ang pointed out that those who stand at the front of causing Hong Kong’s current chaos are a small number of violent r
adicals. Other protestors are kindhearted citizens who have been misguided and coerced to join.
The anti-China forces both in and out of Hong Kong are the mastermin亚搏官网419论坛女神会所
ds that have instigated and bolstered the illegal activities of violent radicals by coo
rdinating, directing, funding and whitewashing violent protests, Yang said. They have supported the wrongful actio
亚搏官网419论坛ns by promoting views such as “civil disobedience”, “only violence can solve problems”, and the “noncooperation movement”.
The immediate task for Hong Kong citizens is to stop the viole
nce and chaos and bring back order, Yang said. He appealed to the HKSAR government, its jur亚搏官网419论坛
idical organs and police to safeguard the rule of law and never be soft on violent violations of the law.

Yang warned the small group of unscrupulous and violent prote亚搏官网419论坛

China’s State Council, or the cabinet, has issued an overall plan for the new Lingang area of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone.
The new area will be set up to the south of Dazhi River, east of Jinhui Port, and south of X

The district launched first is to cover an area of 119.5 square kilometers, it says.
According to the plan, the new section will match the standard of the most competitive free trade zones worldwide
and implement opening-up policies and systems with strong global market competitiveness.
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 national 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 disorder. 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 efforts 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

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.

At the gathering, Wang called on parties involved to secure the multilatera

Thai Foreign Minister Don Pra-mudwinai said that bolstering free trade was mentioned throughout the discussions.
亚搏官网千花网品茶微信After the conclusion of an important meeting of the Commu
nist Party of China Central Committee, the participants said China seeks to make its fiscal policy more eff
ective and maintain “reasonably ample” liquidity. And instead of resorting to a stimulus in the real estate market, Ch亚搏官网千花网
ina will lay emphasis on “proactive fiscal policy and prudent monetary policy”.
It is a challenging balancing act, but the right stance at the right time.
亚搏官网千花网品茶微信Meanwhile, White House pledged to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on Chin
ese imports to the US, which caused US stocks to tank 280 points. The White House needs a scapegoat as the Fed cuts can
not offset Trump’s tweet policies, US growth is slowing and a slowdown is looming in 2020.
The CPC Central Committee seeks to avoid targeted but costly stimulus polic亚搏官网千花网
ies, which could exacerbate new risks of asset bubbles over time, while ensuring adequate fiscal support. Since in
frastructure investment remains relatively soft by historical standards, fiscal easing on investment is likely in the s
亚搏官网千花网品茶微信econd half of the year. And it could be tilted toward small enterprises and startups.
This year’s growth to be within range
Moreover, fiscal easing is likely to be coupled with monetary support, including cuts in the banks’ reserve r亚搏官网千花网
equirement ratio. Although the fiscal easing tilt could cause downward pressure on Chinese bond yields and co
rporate spreads in the near future, the big picture suggests stabilization and resilience.
亚搏官网千花网品茶微信In the second quarter, the Chinese economy grew 6.2 percent compared with 6.4 percent in the
first quarter, but that was hardly surprising in view of the global challenges. China’s econ
omic growth is within the target range of 6 percent to 6.5 percent set by t亚搏官网千花网品茶微信
he government. Indeed, a growth rate of 6.2 percent for the whole of 2019 rema
ins achievable even if growth stabilizes around 6 percent to 6.2 percent in the second half.

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 protesters 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 group 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.”
